Meet Scott Hastings – ballroom dancer, future champion, and rebel.  When Scott’s radical dance moves raise eyebrows with the Australian Federation, he finds himself dancing with Fran, a beginner with little training.

Inspiring each other, the couple find the courage to defy both convention and their families – and discover that to be a winner, your steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom.

Based on the 1992 film by Baz Luhrman, Strictly Ballroom The Musical is the inspiring story of a championship ballroom dancer who defies all the rules to follow his heart.

Featuring some of the Central Coast’s finest performers, Strictly Ballroom The Musical reminds us that a life lived in fear is a life half lived.
