The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair
Part theatre performance, part get up and dance, The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair is an all ages performance event that immerses audience in an evening of old time and new time dance floor magic.
The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair is created by Everybody NOW! a group of performance makers and producers who create participatory, large-scale, immersive experiences that are celebratory and playful, propelled by passion and curiousity.
Inspired by the rise and fall of the social dance scene, The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair celebrates that the dance circuit is alive and ready to kick up the dust again. It is a large scale, site-specific and completely participatory dance celebration. Throughout the performance audiences are guided through decades of dancing stories - real stories from local dance legends.
