  • Venue Downstairs Theatre
  • Dates New Dates TBC

Due to the NSW Government’s COVID restrictions, Belvoir has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone the upcoming season of 25A’s Horses until we are certain we can open the doors again. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause but keep a lookout for new dates to be released.

If you are a ticket holder, we have moved your tickets to a credit on your account, ready to book new tickets when new dates are announced. Should you prefer to receive a refund, please email us and we will organise this for you.

Stay safe, we hope to be seeing you soon for a COVID-safe Horses!


The rules are clear:

The competition will last a minimum of 1,000 hours.

If your knees touch the ground, you’re out.

You must always keep moving.

As long as you dance, you will be fed.

Crisis? What crisis? Remain entertaining so that paying spectators get their money’s worth.

The last couple on the dance floor wins $1,000.

Presented by KUNST.
