Big Dance Liverpool – Day Trip to London


I was on platform 7 at Lime Street early (too early!) yesterday morning to see these young dancers perform their routine before boarding the train to London. I hope their trip and group performance went well.

As part of the nationwide Big Dance several dancers from Liverpool performed ‘The Line’ at Liverpool Lime Street station before boarding the Virgin Trains service to London Euston. On arrival they were be joined by dancers from the capital for a group performance.

The Line is a large-scale line choreography by Lisi Perry. It brings together professional and non professional dancers in an outdoor dance project

Big Dance celebrates the extraordinary range of dance happening in England. It takes place from 5 -13 July, 2008 and there are many opportunities for everyone to get involved.

Big Dance is a project that was developed by the Mayor’s Office at the Greater London Authority in partnership with Arts Council England. The first Big Dance happened in 2006 and featured the 90 minute BBC1 TV programme Dancing in the Streets.
