The Big Dance 2013


In the presence of the British Ambassador to Lebanon, Tom Fletcher, 50 Makassed KSPS students joined their peers in lebanon and around the world last Saturday 18 May at Souk Beirut Down Town at 10.30 am to perform the Big Dance, organized by the British Council, as a legacy to the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, created especially by Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director, English National Ballet. English National Ballet is committed to the Big Dance legacy of inspiring more people to participate in and experience dance through widening opportunity to dance in all its forms, raising aspirations and developing sustainable networks.
Following last year’s remarkable big dance event in Lebanon with 34 Lebanese public and private schools and 2400 students taking over the Parliament Square downtown Beirut, this year again, Souk Beirut witnessed the Big Dance with over 1000 students coming together from 15 schools to celebrate this day with their counterparts from around the world for a 3 minute dance routine with the aim of encouraging people to get into dance, increase fitness levels and generate a legacy of dance for all.
