Our Mighty Groove Callout

Young east Londoners are invited to be part of the opening production for Sadler’s Wells East

Our Mighty Groove is directed and choreographed by Vicki Igbokwe and tells of the transformative power of the club dancefloor where anything can happen. It’s about how people can feel empowered to be their authentic selves through dance. The production blends club styles with African and contemporary dance.

Young people living or studying in east London, who will be aged 16 – 21 on 31 August 2023, are invited to take part in workshops starting this summer 2022, delivered by Vicki Igbokwe’s company Uchenna Dance. Some workshop participants will be invited to join the professional dancers on stage when Our Mighty Groove opens at Sadler’s Wells East, in Stratford in November 2023.
