Big Dance 2012 was the UK’s biggest ever celebration of dance. Thousands of events took place across the UK in all sorts of locations — lidos, parks, palaces, schools, high streets and squares — in all dance styles, as part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the cultural Olympiad.
Big Dance took place across the UK from 7-15 July 2012 and included a 7-week countdown period starting on 18 May 2012 with a global Guinness World Record attempt.
Everyone was invited to join in and make dance a part of their lives in 2012 and beyond.
