The Big Dance is the UK’s biggest celebration of dance and dancing, now in its 10th and final year.

The Big Dance Pledge is an opportunity for dance practitioners and enthusiasts to take part in a unifying performance and creative process with other groups across the globe, united by Akram Khan’s choreography and a specially created music track by Nitin Sawhney.
