This free dance class takes place in complete darkness
If you’ve been known to cut a rug in the past but you’re worried your dancing days might be behind you, listen up.
A brand new free-form dance class is about to launch in Cork… and it’ll all take place under cover of darkness.
Lights Off And Dance (LOAD) is an Australian trend that lands in Cork this April as part of the Lifelong Learning Festival.
There are no teachers, no steps to learn – just free movement and great exercise. LOAD is a space where you can completely let go, shake out the stresses of the day and lose yourself in the music.
The first free gathering takes place on Tuesday, April 9th (5pm-6pm) at CIT, Bishopstown.
“It’s a place for people to come and dance freely in a friendly, non-threatening, drug and alcohol free atmosphere.” says organiser Órla O’Regan. “It’s your opportunity to dance no matter your age, size or ability. It’s your opportunity to dance like no one is watching, because no one is. We use a dark room so that you can bust out whatever moves you like.”
Expect to hear anything from 80’s pop to swing, techno and everything in between. Entry is free but spaces are extremely limited, book in by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
