Brixton is full to bursting with entertainment and music venues, yet it was still not possible to find anywhere that offered somewhere to dance freely during the day.
Free monthly events at Pop Brixton have been set up to offer a space for anyone wanting to dance in the afternoon.
Let’s Dance is fully accessible, including for people who use wheelchairs. The space created is a fun, friendly 75 minute event where anyone can join in and dance together.
Disability Advice Service Lambeth (DASL) and People First Lambeth worked with Pop Brixton to use the Pop Box in Pop Brixton, and amongst other people invited young students from colleges in the area to come along, who have been loving it.
“We started in May and now with two events under our belt, it is proven very popular and we want more people to come,” said the event organisers. The event is very simple. Banging dance mixes for a mixed crowd of mixed abilities, to be free and dance for free. Leave your ego at the door and get on the dance floor! It’s a great exercise and mood enhancer event. We hope that people will feel free enough to enjoy themselves without the need for alcohol.”
The free dance event takes place on every second Monday of the month, slap bang in the middle of Pop Brixton from 1.45pm to 3pm. There is no need to book, just turn up.
One person who dropped by said, “This is absolutely fantastic.”
