PoP [Performances of the Popular] Moves is an international, cross-university working group to develop the emerging research area of popular dance and popular performance.

PoP Moves began in 2007 as ‘Popular Music and Dance Matters’ at the University of Surrey, and in 2010 transformed into PoP Moves with its present cross-university structure. In 2015, PoP Moves expanded to become an international organization with committees in the UK and North America. We look forward to further global expansion.

We run an annual conference and an annual emerging scholars symposium in the UK. The North American group is in the planning stages of establishing virtual working meetings to aid scholars across the world in sharing their research, and receiving feedback from peers.

We have two video sharing websites:
