If you’re ever in Christchurch with a $2 coin in your pocket and a burning desire to throw some shapes, take a moment to visit the Dance-O-Mat on Oxford Terrace. Gather some friends, plug your smart phone/iPod/MP3 player into the washing machine and you’ll be rewarded with an instant dance party.

The space was created in response to the loss of dance studios and performance spaces around the city as a result of the earthquake, and the folks over at Gap Filler wanted to give a space back to the community while lifting their spirits.
