A state-of-the-art dance space is coming to the Olympic Park - and the east London community will benefit.

Renowned choreographer Wayne McGregor, who is also a professor at Greenwich's Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, will move into Here East in 2016.

As well as working on his own projects at the site - formerly the Olympics' press and broadcast centres - McGregor will hand space over to individuals and groups as long as they make commitments to working withn east London schools and community groups.

McGregor said it would be a space where "artists can exchange knowledge and invent together".

What the Here East development will look like

"It will be a crucible of collaboration across disciplines and scale," he added. "It will be a base from which we can work with local communities and young people to share experiences and nurture creativity."

Called Studio Wayne McGregor, it will be a key part of Here and East, which will complement Mayor Boris Johnson's Olympicopolis, a vision for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to be a cultural hub.

One tenant of Olympicopolis will be Sadler's Wells which aims to open a hip-hop academy. The leading dance centre is already working with the community as part of its pledge to be good neighbours in Stratford.
