Dancing City

Saturday 5 September / 1-5pm

Type: Dance, Spectacle

Free

This year, GDIF’s annual outdoor dance programme has been reinvented to enable you to experience more intimate performances whilst observing social distancing.   

Offering more limited audience capacities than in past years, whilst still making the most of Canary Wharf’s fantastic alfresco piazzas and landscapes, this year’s Dancing City, sets out to prove that small can be beautiful.   

Dancing City Events are unticketed. However, please be aware that if capacity has been reached, no further audience members will be allowed into each site.
