No Lights No Lycra is a growing movement with no skills required, no steps to learn, no technique needed and best of all there are no glaring lights and certainly no lycra sporting clothes.
It’s a global dance community that is alcohol and drug free that is run once a week totally in the dark at various locations locally and internationally.
No Lights No Lycra (NLNL) is a place where you can boogie your heart out without worrying about others being jealous of that “sprinkler” dance move.
“I first started going to No Lights No Lycra in Melbourne in 2010, I was studying Design at the time and we would all go down at around 7pm after a long day of classes,” said Rose Megirian, Fremantle No Lights No Lycra organiser.
“When I moved to Western Australia in 2012, I wasn’t ready to stop dancing so I decided to start my own branch,” said Rose.
NLNL Fremantle has been operating for more than four years in Fremantle, with the numbers of participants growing each week.
“I’ve been many times to No Lights No Lycra, I love it and it’s so much cheaper that a gym workout class,” said Catie Windsor, a Fremantle local business owner.
No Lights No Lycra began in Melbourne in 2009 and has been so successful it’s now operating in over 50 locations across various countries.
“With such a busy work lifestyle it’s a good option, No Lights No Lyrca is only $7 entry so it’s a great way of blowing off some work stress and it doesn’t break the bank,” said Catie.
NLNL is nothing more than a playlist, a dark room and a great group of like-minded people having a dance.
“It really is a global community,” said Rose.
