Big Dance (on to 11 July)

Big Dance is the ultimate London dance experience and celebration of dance and dancing, with 9 days of dance events in unusual places throughout the city – shops, parks, galleries and museums – showcasing the diversity of dance styles and cultural attractions across the capital.

Big Dance aims to encourage people to ‘get into dance, increase fitness levels and generate a legacy of dance for all.

Most importantly everyone is invited to join in!

Big Dance will promote London as a world-class centre for high quality dance to an international audience and the aim is that thousands of people will be inspired to make dance a part of their lives.

  • South-East – Greenwich Dance Agency
  • East – East London Dance
  • West – English National Ballet
