Following on from the success of Big Dance 2012 the bi-annual National event returns to the UK for another weeklong celebration of dance taking place 5 – 13 July 2014.

This year the North East are coming together to celebrate all things dance with a multitude of dance celebrations happening across the region including the highly popular Darlington Dance Festival.

As part of the Big Dance 2014 regions across the North East are working together with professional choreographer Nev Campbell to create a mass group dance.  Local dance artists will work alongside Nev to create choreography and movement that they will then teach to their own groups in their different areas.  The dance groups will then come together in Newcastle at the Monument on Saturday 12 July to perform a mass celebratory dance for Big Dance 2014.

In the Tees Valley young dancers are being invited to join the youth dance company for this one off project – if you know of dancers aged 14 – 19 who may be interested please get in contact with Rachael Ankers.
