'People Dancing is a three year programme of activity aimed at encouraging mass participation in dance and dance related activity across the West Midlands. Part of the region’s plans for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, this exciting programme provides the opportunity to bring West Midlands communities together, from all backgrounds and neighbourhoods, to celebrate the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by getting local people moving. The challenge for this programme is to encourage more people to take up dance and dance related activity so that it becomes part of their lives, resulting in them feeling fit and well in both mind and body and having fun.'
