About this event

Note June 1st - we are on every week, except school holidays - next one 20th June 2022

How it works:

  • Wear something comfy, bring a bottle of water or whatever you would drink if you were going to the gym.
  • Find a spot you are happy to be in within the spacious hall.
  • The lights will get dimmed as low as they go, windows blacked out.
  • Then the music starts and you dance however you want.
  • No need to talk to anyone else, it's a time to dance independently in the company of others.
  • This isn't a social event whilst the music is on - dance now talk later.
  • It's a chance for you to lose yourself, your way, to some great music. It's not about technique, or being a good dancer. It's about the experience of dancing with no one watching and the joy that brings.
  • The music stops, the lights go up and you can be back home not too late on a Monday night. Feeling happy, relaxed and like you've done something just for you.
  • This is not a club night. No booze. No drugs.
  • On most Monday nights until April 25th 2022.

“What do James Brown, Basement Jaxx, Donna Summer, The Chemical Brothers and NWA have in common? They all appear on the playlists at Dancing in the Dark, my new favourite way to spend my Monday evenings. I love the old skool vibes of the location, the space to swirl and twirl and shimmy, and the eclectic playlists of such a mix of old and new, funk and dance, reggae and hip hop”. Lizzie Curren

"Its weird but I come out feeling relaxed, yet alert - not many activities do that " . Rick

Who is it for?:

Anyone, regardless of your music tastes or dancing style. We play music from the ages, that is danceable, both popular western and music from other cultures. We try and vary the beat and pace, and you will have heard some of what we play but probably not all.

Who makes the playlist?:

Rick who is carrying on Lucy's creation "Dancing in the Dark".

I will have agonised over the first few playlists, having asked lots of my pals to name their top dance tracks. I am aiming for a good variation as I like many different styles of music. There will be some tunes that you can sing along to, and some that you might never have heard before. African rhythms will definitely regularly appear as will other world music genres. But the essence of the mix will be a tasty base of electronica.

After the first few nights, I will ask fellow groovers to make their track suggestions and will incorporate these in future playlists. I might even ask regular peeps to make a playlist for the night.

Where is Dancing in the Dark held?:
