No more backs against the wall – it’s time to dance!

You’re invited to an immersive dance experience like no other: where diverse bodies, identities and movements are celebrated! Whether you’re a bedroom dancing queen, self-proclaimed dance class fanatic or just love to get down at a wedding – get ready to lose yourself to dance.

Witness pop-up dance performances from a range of Bring A Plate’s favourite artists from across the city. Join the action and learn some moves with the artists throughout the evening if you feel the groove, and shake it off your way in-between performances.

Don’t just stand there! Come over and boogie down with Bring A Plate Dance Company; local creators of old school, wholesome good times.



The People’s Dance Party has been running since 2019, bringing together a menagerie of professional dance artists and community performers from across Meanjin’s incredibly rich and resilient dance communities. It aims to educate, cross-pollinate and stimulate both artists and audiences. We guarantee you will be moved!

Bring A Plate (BAP) is an inclusive dance company that has been bringing people together, celebrating diversity, and creating fun and safe spaces since 2017. BAP can be found activating urban and green spaces through participatory dance and storytelling across Meanjin and beyond. Founded on the pillars of community, inclusion, creativity, agency, sustainability, and fun, BAP challenges Australian society’s perception of who can dance, how to dance, and where to dance. They do this through weekly outdoor community dance classes, site-specific performances and flashmobs, inclusive dance parties, and dancing in public whenever they can.
