Chris Alton

What would you do if faced with racial hatred, aggression and the real threat of violence? Run? Stand and fight? Dance? For most people running would be the sensible answer but for Chris Alton and his colleagues at EDL (English Disco League), disco dancing is their weapon of choice.


Loving nothing more than throwing some shapes on the front line of hate fuelled rallies and demonstrations, the EDL have dedicated themselves to using dance as a passive means of defusing hatred. ​
