The Place is proud to host the fifth annual Camden Schools Dance Festival. The performances are a culmination of dance workshops with over 350 pupils aged 8-18 years and dance artists from various professional backgrounds including South Asian, contemporary, folk and street dance. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the young people involved to share the passion and enthusiasm for dance they’ve developed through participating in the dance workshops.
