PEOPLE can dance like no one is watching at a fun event kicking off in Scarborough next week.

North Perth resident Amanda Lohman is starting a No Lights No Lycra group, where people spend an hour dancing to popular music in the dark.

She attended the Perth group and decided the Scarborough area would benefit from the sessions.

“I think there’s a demand for it,” she said.

“It attracts parents who have young children who need an outlet.”

Ms Lohman said the fun workout was suitable for people aged 15 and older and after entering a dimly lit room, participants are told rules, which include no talking or mobile phones, then the music starts and they “dance for an hour”.

“What I enjoy about it is I can go there, no one can see me in the dark and let go,” she said.

“It’s just an avenue and a release for people to enjoy the music and not feel like anyone is watching.”

Sessions cost $7 and run weekly at Scarborough Civic Centre, starting on November 8 from 7.30pm, and the first 20 people in line will receive free entry.
