VBDS, Swing City, West Coast Collective, DJ Dancing Dean, and Adam Hanna School of Dance

are collaborating and inviting you to dance in the park during July and August 2021.

This is the chance to celebrate community, inclusiveness, light at the end of the COVID tunnel, and to simply see everyone dance again and share some laughs.

Dancers in Victoria will have the chance to collect, mingle, dance and enjoy what we all love! And we have the chance to do it outdoors.
