JOURNEY TO THE HIGHEST PEAK by SLiDE
South London Inclusive Dance Experience (SLiDE) is a Croydon based dance company working with disabled and non disabled people, professional and non-professional dancers. SLiDE have several programmes of dance classes and projects for people aged 14 to 95 alongside performance projects for local and national audiences.
