The London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (LOCOG) will be developing its plans for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in due course. It is too early to say which organisations will take part in these events in four years' time. However, the Cultural Olympiad provides opportunities for local community dance groups to take part in and enjoy the London games in the run up to and including 2012. Information and opportunities for involvement will be highlighted on the London 2012 website:
