Big Dance 2016

Big Dance Festival
20 May – 10 September 2016

Now in it’s final year Big Dance returns in 2016 with special projects like Big Dance Shorts, our touring Big Dance Bus and several other Big Dance events in your area. There are a multitude of opportunities for everyone to participate from 20 May to 10 September. Events by world-class and emerging choreographers will take over public spaces – schools, libraries, community centres, car parks, piazzas and shopping centres, delivered in partnership with several organisations and local authorities. Get in touch with your local Big Dance Hub for more information about how to be involved in your locality across the capital.

Big Dance Week
2-10 July 2016

Big Dance Week is the highlight of the Big Dance Festival offering an outstanding programme of dance performances and participation events that will animate public spaces across the capital. On 2 July, a cast of 1000 Londoners perform a major dance commission by Akram Khan, undisputedly one of the foremost innovative choreographers in the world, in the iconic setting of Trafalgar Square. This will be a special moment celebrating the start of the Big Dance Week!


Invitation to Event Organisers

Organisations, artists, and teachers are all invited to take part and organise an event that inspires people to get dancing. We look forward to hearing your plans and you are welcome to register your event on the Culture Diary. You can brand your event using the Big Dance logo.
