DJ Monski Mouse is back! It’s time to get your dancing shoes on for Monski Mouse’s Baby Disco Dance Hall, which is returning to the South Bank for the 5th summer. The 50 minute disco – part of the Underbelly festival – takes place in the air-conditioned, Spiegeltent show tent and is aimed at under 5’s yet fun for parents too.
About the Disco
Monski Mouse (AKA Australian DJ and mum of 2 little ones, Monica Corduff-Gonzalez) plays an eclectic mix of retro hits (past shows have included Groove is in the Heart) and classic kids songs with actions. The playlist is designed to make toddlers feel at home and grown-ups remember their youth. As a result, everyone can shake off any inhibitions and get up together and boogie!
Furthermore, there’s a bar, booth seating around the dance floor and an area with cushions for non-walkers to sit. The disco is on most, but not all, Sundays from now until the end of September. Tickets are £8.50 each.
