Big Dance 2012 is the UK’s biggest ever celebration of dance and this year is part of the Cultural Olympiad. The Big Dance Schools Pledge is designed to provide groups in schools, or any other regular meeting dance groups, with the inspiration and tools to engage with dance and to be part of thousands taking part in a global world record attempt.
As part of the pledge they will also be required to undertake 20 minutes of dance a day throughout the Big Dance week (July 7-15).
The Big Dance Hub in Wales is a partnership between Wales Millennium Centre and Dance Cymru, set up in order to recruit new partners and friends to get involved in events and activities as part of this celebration of dance.
Schools and groups taking part in the Big Dance School Pledge have been downloading the choreography from the Big Dance website in order to learn and rehearse the dance routine prior to the world record attempt on Friday.
The world record is currently held by the Netherlands with 264,188 participants in 1,472 locations having taken part. School and dance groups not only in Wales but throughout the UK and the World will come together on Friday in an attempt to beat this record.
