Dancing Through the Decades - 80s

Dancing Through the Decades - 80s

Saturday, 22 June 2024, 9.00pm

Join us as we dance through the decades, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wexford Arts Centre. The focus of our celebration in June is the vibrant 1980s, a decade marked by an explosion of creativity and innovation in the music scene. The 80s brought us the advent of MTV, a ground-breaking music television channel that forever changed the way we consumed music.

The 80s also saw the emergence of New Romanticism and Rap Music, both of which has had a huge impact on pop culture. Dominating the charts were artists like Madonna, Duran Duran and Soft Cell their music defining the 80s and still as recognisable today. Fashion also played a key role, pastels and neon were big, as were the shoulder pads, and leg warmers became an essential wardrobe staple, will you be wearing yours tonight?
