A sold-out highlight from the 2021 Festival, the social dance event of the year returns – in the comfort of your own lounge or backyard!

A unique online dance event, providing foot-stomping live music and dance instruction in the security of your own tiny dance hall. Roll up the mat, slip on your dancing shoes and invite a friend to dance for 90 minutes of pure Terpsichorean* delight. Timeless partner dances such a waltz, mazurka, Scottish, and even a Cajun-two-step played by the crème de la crème of Kiwi folk musicians to get you over the COVID blues. No experience necessary!

Invite the neighbours over for a bunch of simple, but supremely satisfying folk quartets from the old world and the new, arranged and eloquently introduced by New Zealand dance legend Michael Parmenter. Even if you’re alone, the irresistible music will give you the opportunity to dance like nobody’s watching.

If you’re not up to cutting the rug, then tune it to witness Parmenter and his trio of fellow dance enthusiasts bring vibrant world dance tunes to life on the Full Moon Online Folk Ball dance floor.

Listen, look, or boogie, either way, you’ll l be swept away by the spirit of dance. A recognition and a promise of what we will be able to experience together, in-person again once we have emerged from this challenging time.

*Terpsichore (tərpˈsɪkəri) one of the nine Greek muses, symbol of enjoyment of music and dance.
