Be part of Big Dance, a worldwide event where thousands of people perform the same choreography in famous locations

The world's largest celebration of dance is sashaying into Fed Square on April 29. Big Dance is a synchronised performance piece, and people all over Australia will perform the same dance at the same time. It's a worldwide event, having originated in London in 2006. 

Indigenous choreographer Frances Rings and New Zealand-born Craig Bary have created the dance, which you can learn online for free. Big Dance is also running free workshops to learn the dance, and there are seated and standing versions. The music accompanying the dance was written by Huey Benjamin.

On the day, people will gather in Federation Square to perform the dance. Dancers will also be performing at the same time in Sydney, Lilydale and Castlemaine.
