News: Youth Dance England 'I Love to Dance'

Tuesday 9 February 2010

Youth Dance England (YDE), the national organisation that champions and promotes dance for all children and young people, will be turning Valentine’s Day into I Love to Dance Day with a huge, free silent disco. Drew McOnie and Roz Lynch, who both featured in the BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance, will open the silent disco at 12 noon on 14th February at sunken outdoor amphitheatre The Scoop at More London.

The I Love to Dance campaign aims to increase participation in dance activity by encouraging young people from across the country to set up their own event or activity on, or close to, Valentine’s Day.

The silent disco will come to life as hundreds of young people and special guests from the dance world don wireless headphones and dance the hours away to a huge variety of tunes from hip-hop to classical played by two guest DJs from silent disco specialists, SilentArena.

Young lovers of dance are encouraged to arrive early at The Scoop at More London as space is limited to 500 people. There will be a £5.00 deposit required for wireless headphones and free red ponchos will be on hand in case of rain.

Where: The Scoop at More London, Riverside, SE1 2DB (nearest tube: London Bridge)
When: Sunday 14th February between 12 noon and 2pm (arrivals from 11.30am)
