THE STORY THAT INSPIRED THE WORLD TO DANCE
STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL is the inspiring story of a championship ballroom dancer who defies all the rules to follow his heart. This uplifting and courageous tale originated as a stage play that Baz Luhrmann created as a student at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) in Sydney back in 1984.
STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL had its Global Premiere on 12 April 2014 at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, followed by seasons at Her Majesty’s Theatre Melbourne and the Lyric Theatre, Queensland Performing Arts Centre in 2015.
Featuring hit songs from the 1992 film including “Love is in the Air”, “Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps” and “Time After Time”, as well as new songs from internationally acclaimed artists and composers such as Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect.
