The University of Sydney Study

The University of Sydney Research Project

The purpose of this research was to find out who is attending No Lights No Lycra and understand why they attend, who they attend with and what the appeal of dancing in the dark is. No Lights No Lycra uses an innovative approach to get people moving and anecdotally has a positive impact on the physical and mental health of people who participate – but we wanted to do the research to REALLY understand.

This research project was  led by SPRINTER, a sport and physical activity research group at the School of Public Health, based in the Charles Perkins Centre, the University of Sydney.

This project has now been completed and the completed study is available to read here
