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.
