Peninsula dance extravaganza sells out in 48 hours

Dancing on the Peninsula is back with a bang with Naughty Noodle Fun Haus hosting their first dance extravaganza on Saturday, April 3.

Ettalong’s own arts and entertainment ‘Haus’ launched its ‘Everybody Dance Now’ event on Saturday for a jam-packed five-hour danceathon.

Creative director, Glitta Supernova, said the event was a roaring success, selling out in just 48 hours, and bringing people from all over the country to the small beachside suburb.

“It was all about dancing and the joy of us finally being able to gather and celebrate together after so long in the ‘no fun zone’,” Supernova said.

“We wanted to create an immersive lighting and sound extravaganza featuring light shows, performance art and installations.

“We had our emerging artists dancing [and] vibing on the dancefloor, whipping us into a collective storm – everyone danced the roof off!”

DJs Seymore Butz and Delinquent Disposition stepped up to the decks and were accompanied by shows from burlesque star Alyssa Kitt and local queen Khandi K Loudly.

The event was originally scheduled to go ahead in January when COVID-19 restrictions initially eased, before locking back down again.

Supernova said the event was built on community engagement with hopes to expand in future.

“We all jumped at the opportunity to move our bodies to our favourite tunes – it’s the ultimate feel-good exercise and has some surprising effects on both the body and mind!”

The Haus will continue to keep the party going with the recent announcement of a partnership with Girrakool Blues Fest.

A series of blues music evenings will be hosted at the Broken Bay Rd venue with the first show to be held on May 1.
