DanceWest programme - Dancing Books was featured on Arts Council England blog! 

Joyce Wilson, London Area Director, Arts Council England, said: “Libraries have always been places of discovery. Dancing Books is a great example of how the arts and culture sector can work with libraries to help more people have fantastic cultural experiences. It enriches families, brings communities together and introduces young children to the joy of movement and the love of libraries.”
