You should be dancing, YEAH!

The First Friday Dance Club is back after a hiatus during the cooler and non-daylight savings months.

The City of Melbourne initiative invites locals and passers-by to have a boogie on the first Friday of the month, with a different style of music represented each month.

For October it was Bollywood style, with the class led by Natya Bollywood.

Genres to come include hip-hop, jazz and even line dancing.

Councillor Rohan Leppert said the idea for the dance club had come from activities held in many Chinese cities and towns.

“The First Friday Dance Club is a fun and creative way to activate the city and encourage a sense of community. The public classes are for everyone and they are a great way to meet new people,” Cr Leppert explained.

“People don’t need to have any dance experience at all and we encourage everyone to get involved,” he added.

Cr Leppert said the dance club had proven popular and the council was hoping it would be well received again.

“Since its inception, we have seen hundreds of people get involved in free dancing classes each month. Everyone from young children and families, to teenagers, business people, visitors to the city and older Melburnians have joined in the fun,” Cr Leppert said.
