Supported by the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the event is part of the Greenwich Festivals, Big Dance and the London 2012 Festival.

Big Dance is delivered by the Mayor of London, Arts Council England, Foundation for Community Dance and a network of Big Dance Hubs. The programme in London is funded by Legacy Trust UK, creating a lasting impact from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by funding ideas and local talent to inspire creativity across the UK, with additional support from the Foundation for Sport and the Arts.

Greenwich Dance is the Big Dance Hub for South East London. The UK’s biggest ever celebration of dance ran from 18 May-15 July 2012 as part of the London 2012 Festival.
