East Bank Performance Project: 14-19 year olds apply now!

Join UD Music and East London Dance this summer for a fantastic opportunity to create a piece of new music and choreography to be performed in the Olympic Park, as part of the Celebrating 10 Year Festival

Guided and directed by professional and respected creatives, you’ll learn vocal techniques and song writing and/or choreographic skills and get to play with song, movement and dance to co-design a performance piece in response to the theme ‘Dystopia to Utopia’ set by Gal-Dem Magazine.

The project is a week-long creative programme (15-19 August) for the dance project and (15-17 Aug) for the music project.

Interested? Email contact@udmusic.org so we can arrange to have a chat.

Don’t miss this free opportunity to get creative and see your work as part of a large- scale outdoor performance set against the stunning backdrop of the rising East Bank buildings on the Olympic Park.

This summer holiday activity supported by The Prudence Trust.

UD Music and East London Dance are a co-producing partner with the East Bank Programme Partners Consortium for Dystopia to Utopia.
