Wakefield Free Runners
and LOADS more…
We’d like YOU to be part of it all, too! Visit bigdanceyorkshire.com and upload film-clips or photos of you, your friends, your family – anyone, really – dancing.
It only takes a moment, and we’ll be broadcasting clips and photos from the site on the BBC Big Screen during Big Dance – Celebration. You could be seen by thousands! It doesn’t have to be amazing quality – film yourself dancing in your own kitchen on a camera-phone, or upload footage of yourself in a professional dance performance. Basically, if you dance anywhere in Yorkshire, we want YOU! Serious dance, silly dance, it’s all good!
And you should definitely learn The Yorkshire Flock, a new dance routine created for us by choreographer Gary Clarke with Jordan Massarella. It’s fun and really easy to learn, and we hope that thousands of people will rehearse it together at 3.00pm and perform it at 4.30pm. Be among them! Learn the routine now, here…
