Now it’s your turn to dance. Come celebrate the end of the Massive with Dance Marathon.

Dance the night away in this performance event based on the American dance marathons of the 1930s. It’s part theatre, part social experiment and essentially a dance contest in which you the audience can mix with stunning performers under the direction of floor judges and the ticking of the clock.

Presented by Canada’s award winning interdisciplinary theatre collective, bluemouth inc. (who will give lessons for dances including the box step and lindy hop). Dance Marathon also features a live band, games, special guest stars, prizes and lots of breaks (thankfully). This is a night to remember – those with two left feet can simply sit back and watch the fancy footwork.
