Big dance in Islington

July 5, 2012

Sadler's Wells in Islington is to lead the Big Dance, a biennial dance festival featuring nine days of dance in unusual spaces throughout London.

Islington residents should watch out for dance happening anywhere from shops, parks, galleries, shopping centres to theatres - showcasing the diversity of dance styles in the capital.

The next Big Dance will take place across the UK from 7 - 15 July 2012 ?? and as Olympic fever hits London in 2012, the event is a fantastic opportunity for north London residents to engage with local, national and international dancers and dance artists. ??

Sadler's Wells has a long history of hosting artists from across the globe and working closely with Associate Artists. In order to reflect the ethos of the Olympics, Sadler's Wells' Creative Learning department, Connect, is drawing on these links and will encourage residents of north London to participate in events ranging from street corner performances to large scale theatre productions, all of which have their roots in international dance styles.

??The ten day showcase of dance takes place across the borough to celebrate Big Dance 2012. It's described as being 'more street than strictly', meaning that funky street dance and urban moves are more likely to be performed than ballroom dance, but you're bound to find a form of dance you love.

"Islington is very proud to have Sadler's Wells in its borough," says Alina Banionyte, Lettings Manager at the Islington branch of lettings agent Edmund Cude. "This event is fantastic for all local residents and gives them the opportunity to appreciate different dance from around the world without having to travel very far."
