Do you feel like DANCING? Come to Pop Brixton 11 June

Who could believe that there is nowhere to dance during the day in Brixton?
We really wanted somewhere, so we set up our own.

Following the success of our first Let's Dance, we have decided to do more!

DASL are working with People First Lambeth's "Breaking out the Bubble" Project to get more people out there and having fun.

WHO IS IT FOR?
Open to anyone who wants to freestyle dance for 75 minutes.
The aim is for people of all ages and abilities to mix together.
Children must be supervised.
