(*Note: this JD event is exceptionally held on a Saturday night*)
Just Dance invites you to a captivating evening of deep + dynamic sounds inspired by the diverse cultures of our beloved planet earth.
Raghunath Khe will intuitively weave a unique 3-hour set for this odyssey, exploring a broad spectrum of tempo, rhythm, and intensity, and seeking out new places in the sonic fabric whilst skillfully creating bridges to the known, loved, and familiar. Sounds evolve, refrain, shift, and tumble, opening up fresh possibilities for movement. The pace and rhythm hold steady whilst surrounding tones inch deeper, drawing you in and in and in.
A fabulous opportunity to allow yourself to become fully absorbed in the dance - to explore, express, release, and to share exuberant moments amidst friends.
We open our hearts to receive the wisdom of our ancestors, we dance for survival, belonging, hope, love, joy, and freedom.
Visuals for the evening will be crafted live by the talented VJ Kashub.

Kashub's name stems from the tribe of his ancestry situated along what is now the Baltic Coast of Poland. The tribe, now dispersed and displaced, lived peacefully isolated amidst sand dunes and swamps along the Baltic since before the dawn of the State of the Teutonic Order some 800 years ago. VJ Kashub brings powerful visual projections to induce a spiritual scene so as to reacquaint long lost souls of his ancestry onto our dance floor.
