Every Body Dance Now
Bust out your best dance moves on the Sydney Opera House forecourt.
While we've been lucky enough here in Sydney to have the freedom to safely return to activities like the movies, indoor dining and seated live music, the COVID-19 pandemic has left a dance-sized hole in many of our lives. You may have been able to temporarily fill it with an at-home boogie over the last 12 months, but Sydney Opera House is offering the opportunity to fill your Tuesday afternoons with dance thanks to its new free dance classes.
Running every Tuesday throughout March, Every Body Dance Now is a series of free outdoor dance classes taking place on the Opera House forecourt. Attendees will learn a mix of contemporary, jazz, street and Latin dance in front of the iconic backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Starting on Tuesday, March 9, the weekly classes will be run by dancers, choreographers, performing artists and educators throughout the month. Classes will run at two separate times, 3.30pm and 6pm, meaning you can drop in for an afternoon dance fix or head over to Circular Quay after work to shake out the day's energy.
If this is your first foray into organised dancing, there's no need to worry, as participants of all fitness, age and abilities are invited.
The classes are free, but registration is essential, which you can do over at the Sydney Opera House website from 9am on Wednesday, February 17.
