Redbridge Dance Link will be staging two performances at the Kenneth More Theatre, in Oakfield Road, Ilford, on Saturday (March 10).

The collective, formed in 1988 by Gladys Graham, consists of dance schools and community groups from across the borough. “Redbridge Dance Link has always found performing at the Kenneth More Theatre the highlight of the year,” said Gladys.

“Support for it and its work has been fantastic over the past 30 years. We have seen many changes, but the enthusiasm has not waned.”

Styles showcased in previous years include jazz, tap, ballet and Indian styles.
