Eclectic by nature, 60x60 Dance offers an unmatched diversity of styles, making for a fast-speed, electrifying performance that never ceases to surprise. Dance influences will range from ballet to breakin’ and everything in between, while music includes neo-romantic, folk, tech-house, noise, rock and everything but the kitchen sink.

The brainchild of composer and producer Robert Voisey, 60x60 started in New York and has grown across the globe. East London Dance, Silke Arnold and Adriana Pegorer present it’s European debut as part of the Create Festival and to celebrate the two year countdown to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
