Project Summary

A Coin Operating Dance Floor

Project Description

Dance-O-Mat is a dance floor on a vacant site with coin operated lighting and sound courtesy of a converted washing machine of course (get it? Laundromat… Dance-O-Mat!)! Anyone can come to the site, plug their MP3 player/Ipod/phone loaded with their own music and get dancing. Dance-O-Mat has been created in response to the loss of many of the dance studios and performance spaces around the city. Gap Filler wanted to give the Christchurch community a unique dance experience whilst bringing life to our broken city – something to lift the spirits and raise the heart beats of the people. So, plug in, pay, hit play, and enjoy!
