New retro dance party for Ballarat

There’s a new retro themed dance event coming to Ballarat this July 28.
Offering a fun and funkadelic night out for everyone, 20th Century Countdown is the new event targeting the 25-55 year old’s looking for an alternative to current options in the Ballarat entertainment space – perfect for those not wanting to go to the club at all hours of the night, and if you’re after something a little more fast pace than the pub.
Inspired by a 90’s London club night, Starsky and Hutch, everyone is encouraged to deck themselves out in the fashion from the decade they were born, though certainly not compulsory. Think full skirts, slacks from the 50’s, flares and florals from the 60’s and 70’s, big hair and bright colours of the 80’s and 90’s grunge and dance wear.
Stylus DJ (yes that is the correct way around!), will be putting his spin on all our favourite hits as we countdown from the 1950’s to the year 2000. There will also be a huge audiovisual projection counting down the memories on the Minerva room giant screen.
20th Century Countdown is a chance for Ballarat to get their groove on with friends, family and strangers, as they don their dance shoes, pack their smile and groove their way into the night.
The event will be held at the Mechanics Institute Minerva Room on July 28 from 7.30pm to 1am. There is beer, cider and wine available at bar prices (sorry no spirits).
