Dancing City: Greenwich & Docklands International Festival

Once a year, Canary Wharf is transformed by Dancing City. There's nothing quite like seeing aerialistes descending from the glass and steel powerhouses of corporate finance or parkour artists dashing effortlessly through the artificial garden of Cabot Square to make you look at this blue chip island quite differently.

Turn up from 1pm on Sunday and be ambushed by all sorts of dance forms around Canary Wharf. See Bharata Natyam does football, a tango wedding and a physical dance interpretation of 'Underground', outside - yes - the underground.

There's loads of other stuff happening in this fantastically diverse and totally free arts festival which kicked off on Thursday evening. We're sending a brave soul along to the pyrotechnic performance piece in Mile End Park tonight - open to all and totally free - so watch this space for photos and more from this amazing weekend.

Dancing City is this Sunday, 22 June from 1pm. Check out the full schedule.
