London is defined by its heritage, recreational spaces, planning, transport and cultural activities. Dance plays an important part in the Art and Entertainment industry, also in shaping the culture of London. Due to current situation of Covid-19, the stakeholders in the dance sector have suffered a huge loss. The proposal aims to change the leisure spaces like gardens and different parks into a dance performance, teaching and interactive space where the dancers can get a larger audience and gather an alternative source of income from teaching people. The proposal also connects smaller grounds to create a network of performing areas around the high density places.
