The Wonderful World of Dance is proud to have helped organise the Dance Protest in London, that was supported by renowned choreographer and TV personality, Arlene Phillips CBE, and founder of London’s famous Pineapple Dance Studios, Debbie Moore OBE, choreographer and ballerina Ruth Brill.

The Dance Protest Team (working with WeMakeEvents) comprised Savannah Saunders, our Editor In Chief of The Wonderful World of Dance, Ruth Mair Howard-Jones, (Choreographer of Save Our Swans), Jack Pallister (Assistant Choreographer), Anna Woodside (Dancer), Roxane Romero (Dancer) and Claudia Derieux (Dancer).

The successful event saw 120 dancers and musicians come together to perform the socially distanced dance created by freelance choreographer Ruth Mair Howard-Jones, with the message of Save Our Swans.

The protest aimed to highlight to the government the need for more support for the dance and arts industry to help deal with the impacts of the covid pandemic.

Thank you to all the dancers and musicians who came out to show their support for the entire dance and arts industry and to everyone who shared their personal stories with us about how their dance lives have been affected by covid.

It was so great to see so much press at the protest and coverage on ITV London News, Times, Guardian, Telegraph and more – check out all the photos below.
