💛 about our dancey tribe 💛


Welcome to Lights Out And Dance, your new favourite thing to do each week!!


Lights Out And Dance (LOAD) is your time to dance, just for you.  


LOAD is a joyous dancing community that began on the Gold Coast in 2016. Our dancey tribe is made up of individuals connected by a shared love of music and dance. We dance for a healthy mind, body and soul.


The LOAD tribe loves the freedom that comes with dancing in the dark without having to follow a routine or learn any steps. We love being able to just move and exercise at our own individual pace. Whilst we are open to everyone to join in the fun, our tribe is mostly women over 40 with different fitness levels, body shapes and varying musical tastes.  We all value our tribe and the friendships created within it.


We are incredibly proud to be dancing on the traditional lands of the Yugambeh-Bundjalung peoples, including the Kombumerri, Mununjali, Wangerriburra on the Gold Coast, and the Wulgurukaba peoples on Magnetic Island; who have been dancing in the dark for centuries! We acknowledge and pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.


There are numerous reasons why you should join our dancey tribe. In addition to the friendships forged, the benefits our tribe have described are its FUN. It improves your health and well-being. It supports your fitness and weight loss goals by giving you a FUN one-hour cardio session every week. Most importantly, though, who doesn’t love the freedom that comes with getting lost in the music and just dancing? 


When the lights go out, we don’t care what we look like, how we dance or what anyone else thinks.  In the dark, we truly let go of inhibitions and JUST DANCE. 


You should try it sometime, it’s bloody brilliant!
