Learn the combination of dance and exercise that is also a fun spectacle of communities coming together.

With roots in ancient Chinese history, China’s plaza or square dancing has been developing across the course of millennia. Due to its ease of participation, all-ages appeal and social and health benefits, it is said to have more than 100 million practitioners worldwide, and is practiced daily at Melbourne Museum’s own plaza. Join these Chinese square dancers for a group lesson and interactive dance routine.
