About this event

No Lights No Lycra exists for the pure joy of dancing in whatever way you feel, getting into a shared space yet dancing alone, listening to a playlist of energetic music, and dancing without worrying how you look. There are no disco balls, no party dresses, no high heels -- and no-one watching. This FRINGE WORLD, NLNL brings you 3 themed nights - Boogie Nights (31 January - 60s and 70s, baby!), Beyonce Beats (14 February - let your inner Bey shine) and Bangers and Bootyshakers (21 February - drop it like it's hot). Come for one or come for all, switch off the outside world and spend an hour dancing with yourself in the dark, just the way you feel. This is your chance to dance in the dark with no judgment, no steps or moves to learn, no designated outfit to wear. Just come as YOU and be ready to shake it all out!

No Lights No Lycra is the pitch-black, entirely sober dance party that attracts crowds in over 75 chapters globally. NLNL began in 2009 by 2 Australian dance students keen to quit critiquing themselves in the mirror and start dancing for pure joy again – so they ditched the spandex and the lights.

The darkness at NLNL creates a certain kind of magic that forces you to forget about what you or the people around you look like, so that your brain can shut off and your body can move with the beat. Talking is kept to a minimum, dancers dance alone, there’s no drugs or booze, no uninvited grinding, no set steps, and no mirrors or lights to feed your self-consciousness.

Everyone is welcome. NLNL is open to all ages, abilities, genders and backgrounds.

The best part? No-one is watching.
