No Lights, No Lycra

Most popular in the city of its birth, No Lights No Lycra has spread across the globe but remains at its most wild and daggy at its two Melbourne haunts. Daggy entirely by choice, and proud to be, NLNL is the dance community we should all worship.

From its organic, loose-limbed beginnings in 2009, NLNL is an opportunity to truly set your mind and body free in a space where everyone is equal under the shadow of darkness. The concept is simple: it’s dark and no one is expected to wear tightly fitting lycra (though no one is stopping you, either - they’re free and easy like that).

The unruly dance students who started the movement, Alice Glenn and Heidi Barrett, still run the classes at Will Sampson Hall in Windsor every Tuesday evening, and at 49 Nicholson Street, Brunswick East, on Wednesdays. Often oversubscribed, it’s important to check if there’s space at a class before rocking up. Wednesdays in Brunswick East might be your best bet. The class starts at 7pm, under the church. For the most up-to-date information, it’s best to follow their Twitter account.

Trust us, this is a welcoming bunch and if ever there was a congregation to support the goodness of your soul through the graceless flinging of one’s limbs, this is it.
