Something special was happening at Westfield Shopping Centres in Stratford and Shepherd’s Bush last Friday (18 May) as part of the Big Dance launch.

In Shh it’s a secret , English National Ballet and East London Dance, joined forces with Rotterdam based choreographer Andre Gingras and a team of dance artists lead by Laura Harvey to create a Flash Mob performance for over 200 performers (aged from 9 – 90) in a range of dance styles, including ballet, tap, street, flamenco and more.

The 7-minute choreography was performed four times across the two Westfield sites – creating an interesting diversion for shoppers.
