Sunday 7 July. Joseph Toonga founded Just Us Dance Theatre in 2007, and in its first few years, the company performed at a variety of dance festivals such as Outspoken Dance and Connect Festival at Lilian Baylis, Scoop and Live Vibe at the Peacock Theatre. In late 2010, Joseph Toonga was awarded the Blueprint Bursary which was funded by East London Dance, London Youth Dance and Sadler’s Wells allowing the company to perform at The Place Theatre, ArtsDepot, Greenwich Dance Agency and Stratford Circus.
Now in 2013, Joseph is about to graduate from London Contemporary Dance School, and is currently on tour with LC3, London Contemporary Dance School's final-year performance group. He will be presenting two works in this festival.
