Push play and boogie!

Get your dancing shoes on and head to Aotea Square these school holidays to dance up a storm at Dance-O-Mat, the coolest interactive outdoor dance floor that’s free for everyone.

Auckland now has its own Dance-O-Mat in time for the National Dance Week (22-30 April) and will play host to the NZ Dance Week launch on 22 April at 2pm. Aotearoa’s very own dance queen, Parris Goebel will be a special guest speaker at the event.

Movers and shakers will delight in the professional-standard sprung dance floor that comes alive when a personal music device is plugged in and loudspeakers, lights and a glitter ball switch on.

Beautifully designed as an urban space to bring people together via spontaneous dancing, and installed in time for NZ Dance Week, the Dance-O-Mat was originally developed in post-quake Christchurch to make use of the newly vacant spaces in the city.

Since 2012, thousands of Cantabrians (and the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall!) have shimmied, strutted and shaken their stuff on the dancefloor, where no skill or experience is required.

Dance-O-Mat is part of the fantastic family Auckland Live Kids Play programme.
