Strictly Ballroom tells the story of maverick dancer Scott Hastings whose wish to find new steps, earns him the disdain of his more conventionally-minded colleagues and the all powerful Federation.

When he pairs with a shy, left-footed local girl called Fran they confound the critics and the rules to challenge for the National Championship.

The 1992 film was a massive hit, making stars of Paul Mercurio and Tara Morice. Creator Baz Luhrmann finally brought the much-loved story he had created at NIDA, back to the stage in 2014.

This stunning all-Adelaide production will co-star Kurt Benton and Kate Harrison as Scott and Fran.

It's Strictly Australian, it's Strictly 80s, it's Strictly about putting your best foot forward in life ... It's Strictly Ballroom!

Approx. Running Time: 150 Minutes
