Taking over The Domain in Sydney this week is the unforgettable immersive cinema experience: Dirty Dancing. Guests will have the opportunity to step into the world of Dirty Dancing – it’s 1963 and you’ve just arrived at Kellerman’s Mountain Resort. Patrons are encouraged to dress in their favourite 60s attire, and to enhance the immersive experience all phones will be bagged and secured at the gate. Once inside, guests will experience real-time the action, romance and excitement of the classic film. 

Dancing With The Stars icon Jarryd Byrne is the choreographer for Dirty Dancing and explains the uniqueness of such a large scale show.

“…when you walk in you are not just coming to watch a show…the experience that you’ll have is like you’re turning up to the resort for a week and so happen to walk into the set of Dirty Dancing.

In regard to what kind of dance experience guests can be a part of, Jarryd says, “you’ll walk into an immersive scene of lifting, grinding, moving, shaking.”

Whether you’re someone who has always dreamed of dancing with the cast of Dirty Dancing or sitting back and watching the action is more your thing, there’s something for everyone on the night. Jarryd explains, “whether you want to participate or want to watch from afar, that’s the experience, we’re actually breaking the fourth wall.” At sunset, punters will be invited to get comfy in front of the big-screen and at 8:30pm a screening of the classic film Dirty Dancing will commence.

The show is set to be an unforgettable experience for all involved, with Jarryd saying, “I want people to feel the heat and be alive in every moment.”

Mar 15-17. The Domain Sydney, St Marys Road, Sydney. $49.90-$129.90+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.ticketmaster.com.au
