A dance spectacular inspired by our honey- loving friends

Flash-mob ‘waggle dance’

50 performers from The Place dance school, will be creating a buzz in Granary Square by leading a flash-mob style ‘waggle dance’. Dressed as bees, the dancers will demonstrate how honeybees dance to communicate where the best source of food can be found.
