Londoners have been dancing all over town to help promote the 2012 Olympic Games.
In theatres and on streets, people in London are being invited to move their bodies as a warm up for a huge upcoming sports event. The Mayor of London has invited millions of Britons to join in the fun.
Wave your hands and swing your body. It's time to dance!
Young or old, the passion has filled the air in the Palladium Theater in the west end. The full house of participants are learning a specially choreographed version of "You can't stop the beat."
Up on the stage is London's Mayor, Boris Johnson, a big supporter of the event "Big Dance" to promote the 2012 London Olympics. The Mayor has also revealed his ambition to recruit three million dancers by 2012, inspiring the whole country to get involved.
The Big Dance kicked off in 2006 and is held biennially. This year, it features 850 events and is expected to reach more than 1.2 million people over a ten-day period.
London is one of the world's greatest centers for dance with enormous creative talent to be found here. You might be the coolest of hip-hop dancers or an ardent balletomane, but as the mayor says, the beauty of Big Dance is it gives you the chance to experience these and everything in between.
