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.

With support from the City of Port Phillip, workshops will be held in March and April to help you learn the Big Dance routine. This session is 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.
This is an inclusive event. If you require mobility assistance or an interpreter, please let us know.

Session times:

7 April (Sat), 2.30pm - 4pm
