IT’S time to put on your dancing shoes - Big Dance is in Bega this weekend!
Big Dance involves dancers from Australia and the UK in a huge simultaneous dance event.
Initiated by the Mayor of London in 2006, this biennial event is the world’s biggest celebration of all types of dance.
This year sees Australia take a leading role as Sydney Dance Company’s artistic director Rafael Bonachela has choreographed a new large-scale dance routine that will be performed by thousands in Sydney, London, Glasgow…and Bega.
Fling Physical Theatre and South East Arts have partnered with Ausdance NSW to host a Big Dance event in Bega on Sunday.
Rehearsals were held last month and a final refresher on the dance to be performed will be held in the Bega Indoor Stadium on Saturday from 12-2pm.
Then on Sunday, everyone is invited to the Bega Showground pavilion where from 11am local dancers will join thousands of others around Australia and the UK in the joint performance.
