How active will it be?

Antidote workshops involve different levels of physical activity:

Wear whatever

Who is it for?

Anyone and everyone. Antidote is a growing community of folks that recognize the importance of being un-serious.

  • Ruby (27, copywriter): Ruby comes with her mates so they can all have a regular night out together
  • Tom (35, IT consultant): Tom is an Antidote regular who likes throwing shapes & getting some fun exercise at our dance sessions.
  • Sarah (22, massage therapist): Sarah’s insatiably curious and comes so she can try something different thing every week.
  • Roger (55, lawyer): Roger simply loves escaping his daily suit-and-tie-seriousness.

To avoid confusion or door entry fuss, please note our events are all 18+.

What kind of games?

Grandmother's Footsteps, Stuck in the Mud, Tag - remember these playground classics? Antidote says you're never too old to enjoy some old school fun.

Games inspiration comes from the world of drama and improvisation to laughter yoga and storytelling. Expect old favourites, reinvented classics, running around, getting it wrong and having a laugh.

What kind of music?

All our music sessions are taught by ear, by swell teachers who love what they do and won’t ever put you on the spot. Whether you’re tone deaf or a tremendous tenor everyone’s welcome at Antidote.

From world music, to soul singing to learning the harmonica, all our sessions focus on making beautifully messy music.

What kind of dancing?

Whether you've got two left feet or are Micheal Flatley - all you need for dancing sessions at Antidote is a willingness to give it a go.

It’s not about getting the steps exactly right, or looking like a pro. In fact we think getting stuff wrong can be good. It’s all about simply having fun.
