Big Dance 2012

Big Dance 2012 officially launches with a whole day of dance at St Pancras International Station on Thursday 5 July.

The programme – including 150 dancers from all around the UK – is being led by Kate Prince, choreographer of the hit shows Some Like it Hip Hop and Into the Hoods.

Big Dance 2012 is one of the largest mass participation events in the London 2012 programme – with the aim to get five million people across the UK dancing during Big Dance week, which runs from 5 -17 July. Hundreds of free events will be taking place in London during the week in venues ranging from public squares and shopping centres, to parks, playgrounds, bridges, studios and swimming pools. The grande finale will be a dance directed by choreographer Wayne McGregor – but choreographed by the 1,000 people taking part in Trafalgar Square on Saturday 14 July.

The dance programme at St Pancras International kicks off at 8.30am with speeches at 9.30am by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London and choreographer *Arlene Phillips. The action continues on stages around the station concourse throughout the day until 7pm.

At 6.30pm there will be a Big Dance finale which everyone is invited to join in – by learning the choreography online [see video] and the option of coming to a run through at 4.30pm at the station.
