Now in it’s third consecutive year, Dance Tropics Dance is Dancenorth’s annual all ages celebration of dance, music and food.

Dancenorth will once again join forces in 2019 with Townsville’s renowned 1RAR band, popular Otto’s Fresh Food Markets and local comedy sensation Ian Zaro to deliver a festive night out under the stars!

The night will feature street food, live performances, activities for kids, an Umbrella Studios creative arts tent and a glitter tent for festival goers to get their sparkle on.Hosted by the hilarious Ian Zaro, the annual Dance Tropics Dance is Townsville’s newest dance party under the stars!

With all proceeds from the event going towards charities Dancenorth Community programs and Townsville Legacy, people can enjoy a fabulous night out also knowing they are contributing to helping their local community.

Dancenorth thanks the Townsville City Council for their on-going support, for without this, Dance Tropics Dance would not be possible. 

Stay tuned for the announcement of Dance Tropics Dance 2019 line up!
