An hour and a half of free dancing with no light, no lycra, no teacher, no steps to learn, no technique. It’s an inclusive, non-pretentious place to shake out the stresses of the week.
No Lights No Lycra began with five people dancing together in a community hall in Melbourne with the lights off. These days, you’ll find one in every major city, packed to the brim with all kinds of people who come to groove in the company of others, in the dark. It’s a place to completely let go, and dance like no one is watching. Because no one is!
Bring a water bottle, and clothes that are comfortable to dance in (work clothes, gym clothes, whatever works for you!)
“This is a pure and spiritual experience, releasing that urge to shake and doing it without dealing with the social nuances of dancing in public”

“Many of the constraints of our modern society can be transcended through dancing in this environment, gender and sexuality become irrelevent, and space is negotiated without words or power struggle.”
