If you've ever wanted to throw right back to your primary school disco — and pffft, who wouldn't? — then here's your chance to push the limits. The city limits, to be precise.

That's because some local legend is breaking out the boom box and taking to the front of the Sydney Opera House to host a mass group groove sesh, featuring a huge, synchronised version of the Nutbush dance.

Yep, the classic Tina Turner track and the daggy (yet, truly iconic) dance it inspired here in Australia will send the Opera House forecourt right back to the 90s, from midday on Saturday, September 8. Best channel your Year 6 self and start practicing in front of the mirror, because already more than five thousand punters have said they're keen to get involved. Here's a video, if you need a quick refresh.

Last month, as part of the Birdsville Big Red Bash in QLD, a crowd of 1,719 broke the official Guinness World Record for the largest-ever Nutbush dance — let's see if Sydney can top that effort.
