DANCE IN THE DARK

Dance In The Dark is inspired by people saying they love to dance but feel too old to go to a club or, if they’re not too old, then too intimidated by a drunken party crowd or too shy or too unfit or too something or another. This is the place to feel safe to dance as you want to, whatever your, age, ability or fitness level. The music is varied. 'No lights, No lycra’ aims to do something similar. The main difference here- you can wear just what you like– including lycra if you so wish!

Dates and times: 9pm-10pm, monthly Thursdays, check date here >>
