Hundreds of dancers came together for Close To Home: The Mass Dance Event

JUMP TO Events

Hundreds of dancers came together for a spectacular performance

We took over the grounds of Sedgehill Academy in Bellingham for two days of performances, telling real-life stories of migration, community, activism, history and the people of Lewisham.

Take a look at our gallery below for some photos of the event.

From Councillor James J Walsh, We Are Lewisham and the Albany, we would like to share a wholehearted thanks to the partners and participants of Close To Home: The Mass Dance Event, who gave up their time to learn their choreography, rehearse and perform with us!
