People have participated on six continents in twenty seven countries from Hawaii to San Francisco across the US, to Slovenia, Tanzania, Turkey, Estonia, Sweden, Spain, Ireland, Papau New Guinea, Namibia, to name a few. Anyone is encouraged to participate, and the project involves people of all ages, abilities, nationalities, and backgrounds. Artist and dance anywhere creator Beth Fein says, "This global event is an open invitation to all: to stop and dance wherever they will be. What is so wonderful about dance anywhere is that it is a way for everyone, anywhere to be creative - to pause in their busy lives and dance with the whole world." Fein has continued to develop this original concept to not only blur the line between art practice and art, but to dissolve the line that often separates art and dance from our daily lives. This is dance that does not need to be on a stage... our immediate environment is our stage and we should all stop to dance as a worldwide community.
