Camden and Islington are joining forces getting in the swing of things for the Olympic Open Weekend. July sees a veritable smorgasbord of dancing delights hit the boroughs with everything from ballet to wheelchair ballroom, from same sex latin dance to outdoor dancercising, clogs, hip hop, be-bop, merry morris men and tea dancing. There are loads of opportunities to watch, learn and shake your sexy thang in the voluminous listings. How about:
