DetailsBig Dance 2012 is the UK's biggest ever celebration of dance. Taking place across the UK, Big Dance will feature thousands of events inspired by dance. They will take place in all sorts of locations and in all dance styles which will all be open to absolutely anyone. Events will include classes, workshops, courses, performances, flashmobs, have-a-go days, film screenings, photography courses, competitions, world record attempts, dancing in unusual spaces - shops, parks, galleries, shopping centres - dancing in schools at home, wherever you like. Explore the links between dance and fashion at a design showcase for the English National Ballet. Continuing the legacy of Ballets Russes, Design for Dance explores the artistic partnership between dance, art and fashion design. British choreographer George Williamson, designer David Bamber and students from Marangoni Institute showcase their extraordinary designs for English National Ballet's new production of Firebird in London's Living Room. Join emerging talent and aficionados from the dance and fashion worlds as they expose artistic collaborative processes and debate fashion's influence in designing for dance. Hear their thoughts as they reflect on the Firebird project and discuss how designing for dance differs from designing for fashion.
