Yes, that’s more than three examples, but you get the idea.

It’s been a massive three years since the three of us decided to start working together under the banner of Everybody NOW. The next three years too, has the making of living up to the rule of three; inherently funnier, more satisfying and more effective.

Do you know someone who carves up the dance floor at the family backyard BBQ?

Over three huge nights, diverse local community and dancing groups will share some of Darwin’s rich culture and dazzling dance history. We are totally delighted to be getting a little bit tropical for this special Darwin season of You Should Be Dancing.

In addition to the stella line up of local dancers, community groups and dance instructors involved, You Should Be Dancing stars our Dance Captain deluxe, Bec Reid, our dear friend and charming emcee Tristan Meecham, our very own queen of the decks, Disco DJ D...
