There were impressive routines and the crowds who gathered to watch were invited to join in the fun.

Free workshops in indoor venues and a parade led by the Sheffield Samba Band added to the magic this year.

Committee member Liz Searle said:“Chance to Dance 2015 was our biggest and busiest yet.

“It’s always fun for everyone and a chance for people to try something new.

“This event brings together all the different cultures we have in Sheffield and celebrates our wealth of talent.

“As we head into Volunteers’ Week, we’d like to pay special thanks to our wonderful team of volunteer stewards.”

Dances were held across the city centre including on The Moor and in the Peace Gardens.

The event does not receive regular funding and relies on volunteers to apply for funding every year.
