East London Arts Centre Rich Mix is offering students living or studying in Tower Hamlets and Hackney free tickets to dance performances throughout Summer 2012.
Rich Mix Head of Programming Oliver Carruthers says, “East London is now home to a large dance community who, inspired by their rich surroundings, are creating work which appeals to new audiences.”
“Offering young people in our local community the opportunity to experience East London’s dynamic and diverse dance culture first hand, will hopefully encourage a whole new generation of dance enthusiasts.”
“With the support of our dance partners, this summer we are prioritising 10 free tickets for many of our dance performances to dance, school or university students who live or study in Tower Hamlets and Hackney.”
The following performances have a free tickets allocation for students:
