MOVE IT is the world’s biggest dance event, coming back in style this year from 10-12 March at ExCeL in the heart of London. MOVE IT headlines the biggest and best icons of dance in all its forms – from contemporary and hip hop, to ballet, tap and beyond – across a range of formats, including talks, performances, workshops, and more.

Headliners this year include Love Island finalist and professional dancer Tasha Ghouri, who will be throwing shapes on the Main Stage on the Sunday; all-round expert Mira Jebari, who was danced on some of the biggest stages in the world performing with the likes of Sean Paul and Dua Lipa; and Layton Williams, renowned not least for his top billing in the musical sensation Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

With over 160 classes available, covering 24 different styles, there’s something for every taste at MOVE IT ranging from beginner to advanced level. Learn from the best of the best in disciplines from ballet and ballroom to acrobatics and musical theatre, with classes such as the “Ballet Masterclass” with Bloch; “How to Nail an Acting Audition” with the UK’s leading performing arts foundation school, READ College; and choreography sessions with Bristol’s Dark Angels outfit, famous for their appearance on BBC’s The Greatest Dancer.

This year, MOVE it will also play host to the first round of the prestigious UK Hip Hop Dance Championships.

There will also be the Freestyle Stage, where anyone is welcome to express themselves on stage to tunes selected by the resident DJ, in competition for the chance to win exclusive prizes and dancing glory.

With a wide range of retailers exhibiting on site too, from fashion and dance equipment outlets to representatives from dance colleges and more, MOVE IT is also the perfect opportunity for some dance-related shopping.
