DANCERS demonstrated a range of dance styles as hundreds of people gathered in Church Square for Big Dance 2012.

As well as watching top dance groups perform in a range of styles, from flamenco to morris dancing, spectators were given the chance to join in at a series of workshops in a marquee in the square.

The Big Dance event is part of the UK’s biggest celebration of dance.

Thousands of events are taking place across the UK in all sorts of locations – parks, palaces, schools, high streets and squares – in all dance styles, as part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the cultural Olympiad.
