Lit 5 are a small collective who formed together from attending an open class at a local youth centre in Dagenham. They have been together for about 8 months and performed at many local shows and festivals. The open class is a place where all ages ethnicities backgrounds come together to have fun meet new friends and learn new choreography.
The sessions are led by all young people to experience the role of being a leader and catering to all different abilities. The young people leading already train in dance companies so are quite advanced so it is a huge challenge for them taking on a big reasonability however, it is very rewarding and they enjoy the process. We try to provide as many opportunities to be taught by professionals in the dance industry, perform, compete, and watch shows so they experience as much as possible.
