Event description


Big Dance is the largest free celebration of dance in the world and it's hitting Australia in 2018!

Presented by Ausdance Victoria, Big Dance is a free participatory dance festival, a celebration of dance for all ages and all levels of ability. Join thousands of people around Australia to perform the Big Dance, choreographed by acclaimed choreographers, Frances Rings and Craig Bary.

In partnership with JETsport, workshops will be held in March and April to help you learn the Big Dance routine. Dance on one of the biggest rooftops in the city while you soak up the amazing views of Melbourne (one of JETsport's venue partners on Franklin St)! These sessions are free and open to people of all ages and abilities. Register to secure your spot as spaces are limited.

No prior dance experience is necessary to participate.

If you require an interpreter, please let us know. Note: This venue is not wheelchair friendly.

Session times:

21 March 2018 (Wed), 6pm - 7.30pm
14 April 2018 (Sat), 10.30am - 12pm
