Put your glad rags on and dance your cares away in this interactive event inspired by the human endurance contests of 1920s and 30s America.
Part theatre, part social experiment, Dance Marathon invites you to strut your stuff to the live band. Come alone or as a group, come if you are experienced or a total novice. Then it’s time to have fun, learn a few new steps, be guided by the floor judges and join other participants as the competition and entertainment heat up. Those with two left feet need not worry – just sit back and observe the fancy footwork.
Round after round is danced out against the clock, until one couple is left standing and crowned champion.
