Big Dance Schools Pledge Save the date - 18 May 2012!

The Big Dance Schools Pledge is back in 2012. We’re hoping it will be the best  yet! In the last two years over 900 schools worldwide have signed up to the Big Dance Schools Pledge. For 2012, we want to boost that number to 1,500 schools.

The World Record 

Our aim is to break the world record for 'The Largest Simultaneous Dance Routine –  Multi Location'. It is currently held by the Netherlands, with 1,472 different locations. You can help us beat this record by signing your school up today.

The World Record attempt will take place at 1pm on 18 May 2012 – the day the Olympic Torch arrives in the UK.

The  Choreography

We are working with world renowned choreographer, Wayne McGregor – Artistic  Director of Wayne McGregor Random Dance and Resident Choreographer at The Royal Ballet. He was also the movement director for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The choreography will be available on our website from January 2012.
