Earlier this week, a handful of PDSW’s associate teachers gathered in the Garden Studio to learn the choreography for the Big Dance Pledge 2016.

This year, Akram Khan has created the Big Dance choreography with all types of people and levels of experience of dance in mind. The piece explores a number of themes and ideas including:

– Identity, journey and migration

– Connection, human ritual and spirituality

– Hope, aspiration and achievement

Our associated teachers will take this choreography away to teach their students in preparation for a performance on the PDSW terraces on 20 May 2016.

If you would like to get involved with the Big Dance Pledge 2016, there are resources available to download on the Big Dance website.
