An Uber-Cool Art Installation And Dance Party Is Taking Over Chinatown This Month

Take to the streets with wild abandon with Wanna Dance.

Sydney Solstice has ushered in a whole new era of fun and exciting outdoor events for Sydney. Right from an underwater party with sharks to transforming Darling Harbour into a winter wonderland, the city is brimming with activities this month. One of the events that caught our attention is Wanna Dance — an interactive art and dance installation which is allowing us to put on our dance shoes and let loose right in the middle of Haymarket’s streets.

Wanna Dance, created by City People and Studio Chris Fox, is a collaboration between some of Sydney’s brightest creative minds. Sydney-based dancers, designers, sound artists and choreographers will be coming together for this outdoor street party which will kick off during the day and go on well into the night. Three ‘dance vents’ will pump out some of our favourite tunes to get us into the mood. If you’re a night owl, you can look forward to gyrating disco lights and some sick beats that will bring the precinct to life in all its glory.

What’s even better is that you can take your whole family, kids et al to this al fresco event, there’s something for everyone and a great way to beat the cold while supporting and enjoying local talent. Wanna Dance will be featuring six nights of dance performances curated by some of Sydney’s finest talent in the arena of dance and music.

After a year of no dancing, this is just the outlet we all need to get our groove back. Find more information here.
