The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair

 

Part theatre performance, part get up and dance, The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair is an all ages performance event that immerses audiences in an evening of old time and new time dance floor magic. Inspired by the rise and fall of the social dance scene, The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair celebrates that the dance circuit is alive and ready to kick up the dust again.

Dance Affair is a large scale, site-specific and completely participatory dance celebration. Throughout the performance audiences are guided through decades of dancing stories – real stories from local dance legends. Featuring a charming MC, dance captain and a fleet of light footed guest stars, the performance seamlessly swings its way through all the much loved dance hall traditions, super, raffles, meat trays, belle of the ball awards and a few invented traditions of our own.

Set to a cracking live band, the love, high drama and heart-warming real stories, will leave audiences with their dance card full! The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair is a funny, exhilarating and energising performance event spaning across generations and genres, connected by the knowledge that people love to dance.

Put on your dancing shoes and hit the floor for everything from the two-step to the twerk, tango to a cheeky cha cha, a waltz, swing step or free styling soul train grooves. Be prepared to be armed with the ultimate tool kit of essential dance moves and, together, we will create the newest social dance to hit the circuit, full of partner dances and pop solos that people love.
