Chance to dance returns to city centre

Sheffielders were twisting, jiving and foot-tapping this weekend as the Chance to Dance Festival took place across city centre locations. Dance performance in the streets, from Barker’s Pool to the Moor, included ballroom, tap dancing, ballet and belly dancing with the public invited to join in as well as watch. The event also featured the Sheffield Giants, War and Peace, who are celebrating 25 years since they were presented to the city in 1992.
