Dance students from the University of East London are performing for Princess Anne when their new college campus opens.
The campus at Stratford’s University Square is being opened officially by The Princess Royal tomorrow.
But dancing for Royalty is nothing new for some UEL students.
“I performed for the Queen for the Diamond Jubilee,” said Baanji Muteto, in his third year studying Urban Practice. “Performing for another Royal is a fantastic opportunity.”
But for others it’s a new experience, as fellow Urban Dance student Stephanie McKenzie-Sealy explained: “I have never performed in front of a member of the Royal family before and am totally thrilled.”
