Pan's People was a British all-female dance troupe most commonly associated with the BBC TV music chart show Top of the Pops from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s. However they also appeared on many other TV shows in the UK and elsewhere in Europe and appeared in cabaret. They were the second dance troupe to appear regularly on Top of the Pops, succeeding the Go-Jos in May/June 1968. Starting with monthly appearances, they became a weekly feature of the programme following its revamp and time extension in January 1970, continuing in the show until April 1976. As a result of line-up changes just one dancer, Ruth Pearson, appeared on the whole run.
Due to their weekly exposure on British television the group acquired a high profile, and in addition as a result of the increasing number of preserved recordings from 1973 onwards, the 'classic' line-up which existed from 1972 to 1974 is still widely recognised today.
