Here you’ll find all the answers to all the questions you might be wondering. You know the ones – how much is it, is there a teacher, what do I wear, how long does it go for, how old is everyone, etc.?
Lights Out And Dance is a weekly dance fitness session, in the dark! It’s your time each week to unwind and just dance. Why? Because dancing is good for the mind, body and soul.
Lights Out sessions currently take place at the following locations:
- Upper Coomera Community Centre, 7pm every Tuesday
- Runaway Bay Youth Centre, 7pm every Thursday.
Lights Out sessions are $10. We offer a discounted rate of $7 for pensioners and people on concession cards.
Yes, everyone must book online. Tickets can be purchased right up until the session starts. We do not offer door sales anywhere.
No. At Lights Out there is no fitness or dance instructor. This is your hour to just switch off and dance. Because there is no instructor, you’ll be responsible for doing your own warm up and warm down during the session
We aim to keep our playlists fast, fun and full of dance floor bangers to keep everyone dancing. We cover a wide variety of decades and genres and aim to get the right balance of old and new. If it’s fast and fun, we’ll dance to it!

Not as such. With so many people it’s a bit hard to take and guarantee requests. Instead, we provide a place on our home page to submit a song suggestion and we also have a Song Box on Spotify where everyone can add their favourite dancing tunes. This is the place we take inspiration from to create our playlists.

Yes, we offer complimentary tickets to all carers, whether NDIS or other. Companion card holders are required to purchase a general admission or concession ticket and at the time of booking also book a carers ticket. All carers must hold a valid ticket for the session they are attending.
If you’re wondering who comes to a Lights Out session, it’s mostly women over 40! While we’re open to everyone joining our dancing fun, we are mostly women 40+ who miss dancing our nights away on nightclub dance floors with our girlfriends and who have no interest in an instructed dance class. We all have different fitness levels, body shapes, and varying musical tastes, but we’re connected by our shared love of music, dancing and exercising at our own pace.
Yes, most people do.
We are a very welcoming dancey tribe and some truly great friendships have been forged from our sessions. So please don’t be shy to join us on your own.
Yep. When the lights go out, we have a ZERO TALKING policy.
We encourage singing, clapping and cheerying. In fact, we have a dedicated singalong song in each session. We do however ask for no talking once the lights go out, and for everyone to be mindful of those around you.
If someone is talking near you, feel free to yell out stop talking as you won’t be the only one who can hear them!
It’s as dark as we can possibly get the hall you attend in, but don’t worry – your night vision will kick in after the first couple of songs!
We make the session gradually darker after the first couple of songs to ensure that our session leaders can make sure that they can see the upright dancing silhouette of everyone in our session.
No, we do not offer refunds. If you are unable to make your booked session, provided 24 hours’ notice is given we will offer a one – time transfer to the following week only.
We keep our ticket prices low by reducing the amount of admin that comes with refunds and transferring tickets.
Whilst our sessions are for adults, we do allow children to attend as it’s a great opportunity to have a fun dancing session with your kids.
Please bear in mind that we do not filter music with explicit language and all parents/guardians must ensuretheir children are not running amok, using phones, talking/screaming/yelling or being disruptive to other dancers.
We recommend trying a session on your own first to ensure your kids will enjoy it and that they will be ok in a very dark and loud environment.
Yes, but only at first! By the end of the session though you’ll be a sweaty, smiling, clapping ball of joy and happiness like everyone else. You’ll be wondering why it’s taken so long to join us!!
We understand that it might not be for everyone, so if it turns out it’s not for you then you can leave at any point. Remember though, we do not offer refunds.
Well, why don’t you get in touch and we’ll help you create your very own Lights Out And Dance session and get your community dancing in the dark with you!
