Dance Around The World is a community festival which celebrates traditional dance cultures from all over the world. In two exciting and energetic days of dance, performers and teachers provide a non-stop programme of extraordinary variety from 10.00am to 11.00pm each day.

Latin for allVisitors to the event will be able to watch and try for themselves traditional dance forms from all over the world. They will be able to choose from styles as varied as Flamenco, Indian, Caribbean, South East European, Tango, Maori and much, much more! 

Demonstrations run continuously all day in the main hall while at the same time there are one hour workshops in three other locations. You can watch demonstrations all day or try different dance styles in the workshops. Join in the social dancing on both evenings too. No previous experience is necessary and you don't need to bring a partner. 

Dance Around The World is an 'access event'. It is our policy to set entrance prices at the most moderate rate possible.

The good news - We try to keep the ticket prices as low as possible.

Below are the Ticket Prices for the 2018 event. If we have to increase the

price it will only be by a small amount, just enough to cover the cost of the

festival. If the festival is to continue we must cover our costs!

£17  -  each full day including the evening

£10  -  evening only

£30  -  weekend ticket

(£2  -  reduction for concessions)

The single day tickets are designated for the Saturday or Sunday but can be used on either day.

Note that children get in free but must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Tickets we go on sale early in the summer.

Dance Around The World is for everyone - whether you're young or old, an experienced dancer or a novice. If you've ever danced, wanted to dance or wondered why people dance then this festival is for you.

Dance Around The World is an entirely voluntary event. All the performers, teachers and organisers donate their services free. We do not have a budget to bring groups from overseas, so in general all the groups come from the greater London area.
