Dead Singers Dance Society 2024


Tracks Dance Studio, Harbour View Plaza, Darwin

Love to dance to great music with others?

Join the Dead Singers Dance Society.

Back again in 2024 the ever-popular “DSDS” is a 4-week dance course where participants learn a fun and achievable dance routine that celebrates the incredible music of a legendary, dearly departed singer.

Open to all, Society Meetings (dance classes) are held in an inclusive and supportive studio space led by Tracks' experienced teachers. At the end of the course, there will be an optional performance opportunity to show off the dance in front of an audience, or just bust out your new moves, anytime, anywhere.

Anyone can join DSDS, but numbers are limited for each course. Don't miss out! Only Members truly know what it means to be in the Dead Singers inner circle.
