Big Dance 2012 is the UK’s biggest ever celebration of dance. Happening across the UK from 18 May to 15 July 2012, it will feature thousands of events inspired by dance. Events will take place in all sorts of locations and in all dance styles, open to absolutely anyone. Events will include classes, workshops, courses, performances, flashmobs, have-a-go days, film screenings, photography courses, competitions, world record attempts, dancing in unusual spaces – shops, parks, galleries, shopping centres – dancing in schools at home, wherever you like.
Whatever your age or interest in dance, there will be a Big Dance event for you. For information on the events happening in the North West, visit the website
