TV Dance Shows Boost Popularity in Dance

A nationwide survey carried out for Dance Proms, a new dance festival taking place at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 13th November, reveals that just over 1 in 5 British adults (21%) have become more interested in dancing as a result of TV dance shows such as Strictly Come Dancing.

Roughly the same number of adults (1 in 5 ā€“ 20%) currently participate in some form of dance – covering a huge range of styles from ballet to ballroom and street to salsa – and just over 1 in 8 adults (13%) have taken part in a dance class in the last five years.

The survey was conducted by YouGov, who interviewed 2058 UK adults (aged 18+) between 28th – 31st October 2011.
