Dance Around The World is a community festival which celebrates traditional dance cultures from all over the world. In two exciting and energetic days of dance, performers and teachers provide a non-stop programme of extraordinary variety from 10.00am to 11.00pm each day.
Visitors to the event will be able to watch and try for themselves traditional dance forms from all over the world. They will be able to choose from styles as varied as Flamenco, Indian, Caribbean, South East European, Tango, Maori and much, much more!
Click here for Youtube to get a taste of the performances that run continuously both days. There are music workshops too. You can watch demonstrations all day or try different dance styles in the workshops. Join in the social dancing on both evenings too. No previous experience is necessary and you don't need to bring a partner.
Dance Around The World is an 'access event'. It is our policy to set entrance prices at the most moderate rate possible.
Unfortunately there will have to be a small price increase in 2016, just enough to cover our costs.
Below are the 2015 Ticket Price to give an idea of the price.
£14 - each full day including the evening
£9 - evening only
£22 - weekend ticket
(£2 - reduction for concessions)
Advanced tickets will go on sale early in the summer. There is a small charge but we drop the price so you won't pay more than you would on the door. Sorry but we do not do concession advance tickets. Note that children get in free but must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Dance Around The World is for everyone - whether you're young or old, an experienced dancer or a novice. If you've ever danced, wanted to dance or wondered why people dance then this festival is for you.
Dance Around The World is an entirely voluntary event. All the performers, teachers and organisers donate their services free. We do not have a budget to bring groups from overseas, so in general all the groups come from the greater London area.
