No Lights No Lycra
A casual free-form dance class in the dark for the pure joy of dancing.
Every Tuesday at New Hall - 11 Kirk Rd, Pt Lonsdale
7:30 - 8:30pm
At the heart of No Lights No Lycra ( NLNL) is the belief that everyone can dance.
This global dance community that started in Melbourne by unruly dance students Alice Glenn and Heidi Barrett in 2009. There is no light, no lycra, no teacher, no steps to learn, no technique, just free movement. NLNL is a space where you can completely let go, shake out the stresses of the week, and lose yourself in the music and the physicality of your body. NLNL is a daggy, non-pretentious place to completely be yourself.
“ I had two kids in two and a half years, and between that pregnancies, the caesareans, the (failed) breastfeeding, and the sleepless nights of rocking crying infants, my body was just no longer mine and i thought it never would be again. It sounds so strange, but the first time i danced in the dark i realised how amazing my floppy, wobbly, unrecognisable post babies’ body was. It has grown two humans and i could still move it in a way that gave me joy, just me by myself. We reconnected in the dark that night, my body and me, and i finally felt whole again. NLNL gave me myself back.”
