Arlene Phillips Launches Big Dance Bus

Celebrity choreographer and TV talent show judge Arlene Phillips joined 50 young dancers at Sadler’s Wells this morning to launch the Big Dance Bus.

The bus is touring London in the run-up to Big Dance, a nine-day festival of dance at unusual venues across London in July.

“I love the words Big Dance,” says Phillips. “People, I’m sure, from all over the country will join this big event. Everyone can get up and dance.”

The bus will roll out its mobile dance floor at 16 locations around London, with performances and a chance to have a go at various dance styles, from ballet to waltz, tango to contemporary.

You’ll also be able to learn the Big World Dance routine, which will be performed by thousands of people on the streets of London on 10 July, culminating in a huge event in Trafalgar Square.

The Big Dance Bus tours London from 21 May until Big Dance week (3-11 July 2010). Find out more at
