Big Dance is one of ten lottery funded Arts projects to make it through to the semi finals of the National Lottery Awards.

Last year Big Dance organised over 850 events in streets, squares, parks, museums, schools and even swimming pools across London – with over one million people taking part. It was coordinated by five hub organisations – East London Dance, English National Ballet, Greenwich Dance, Siobhan Davies Dance and Sadler’s Wells – and supported with nearly £2.9million from the Lottery.

Northern Ballet and Phoenix Dance Theatre are also nominated for creating the biggest dance facility of its kind in Europe. More

The winning project in each category will feature in a BBC One TV show in early November and will receive a £2,000 cash prize to spend on their project.
Voting is open now and ends at midday on Monday 20 June.
