You Should Be Dancing says
Brisbane Festival and Treasury Casino & Hotel join forces with Everybody NOW! to create an exciting new pop-up venue in Queens Park.

This sparkling new space will host our Opening Night kick-off and eight nights of the new kick-up-your-heels interactive dance experience – You Should Be Dancing.

Freestyle your way through the ultimate mega mix of dancing styles in a series of free social dance nights for everyone, featuring a different dance style each night.

A charming Emcee, a Dance Captain Deluxe and a fleet of "Local Dance Legends" will strut their stuff and get you moving in a specially decked out space in Queens Park.

Opening with a dance lesson and followed by a non-stop, exhilarating night on the dance floor, You Should Be Dancing is your invitation to party, feel the rhythm, embrace the romance and dance, Brisbane.

Participatory, inclusive and no experience necessary!
