Boogie your way into Melbourne Winter

Melbourne is set for some serious night fever with the arrival of newly launched Boogie Nights Dance, a series of disco-inspired classes and workshops from professional dancer (and disco diva) Ally McNaughton.

Heavily focused on the music and moves from the halcyon days of disco, soul, boogie, funk and everything in between, all Boogie Nights Dance classes are designed to get everyone’s hips movin’ and hearts groovin’ with a few nifty manoeuvres and mini routines ideal for absolute beginners and disco aficionados alike. Professional singer, dancer and performer McNaughton encourages all her attendees ‘To let the music wrap you in it’s soulful embrace and help unleash your inner disco deity upon the world.’

Following a 6 week series of classes earlier in the year in Abbotsford, Boogie Nights Dance is getting geared up to get down again on Tuesday evenings this July – August with another 6 week series of casual classes at Dancehouse in Carlton North.

Talking about the birth of Boogie Nights Dance McNaughton says the concept came about out of a deep obsession with the music and culture of the 70s and early 80s combined with her incessant need to dance saying ‘I strongly believe that just having a big, hearty boogie is one of the most cathartic experiences a person can have.’

Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 – 8:45 pm, July 3rd – August 7th 2018. Be sure to bring a water bottle, comfy soft sole shoes, and a can-do disco attitude. Disco threads are highly encouraged yet optional.
