01 July 2006 - 01 July 2016
Big Dance was People Dancing's first national programme to get people dancing, presented from 2006 - 2016. We delivered Big Dance in partnership with the Mayor of London and a nationwide network of Big Dance Hubs. Following the final edition of the festival in 2016, we are continuing to develop the resources and support for the programme to establish a recurring, annual celebration for participation in dance.
