Dark Dance


Hello darkness, my old friend

Put some bass in your bones, some swing in your step, and some party in your heart on a Monday night. No bar, no lights, big sound, and different tunes, every session, every week. Cheering, whooping, and singing badly is all part of the fun. Phones, fit bits, and watches light up in the dark. If you need help or something is wrong turn your phone on and they will come and help you. If you feel like messaging your friend – wait – or the crew might just kill the music and turn the lights on thinking you need help. Don’t be that person, keep Dark Dance dark. No drugs or alcohol.

From time to time the event reaches capacity and can’t fit everyone in, so please arrive on time with everyone you are planning to party with to avoid disappointment. Creeps stay home! Dark Dance has zero tolerance for inappropriate behaviour and are very much about providing a safe space. If you’re worried about the way someone is acting please report this to the crew – your safety and enjoyment is their top priority. 

Follow on Facebook for all the info and dates. Pro tip: make sure you arrive ten minutes before the session time to avoid being locked out; the doors automatically lock when they close and the crew can’t hear knocking once the music starts. Happening most Mondays – do check ahead first.
