Event Details

Shake it in Aotea Square!

Auckland’s favourite urban dance floor returns! Plug in your phone or music device, pick your favourite song, push the red button and cut loose to the beat – bring the whānau for a fun day out in the city. 

Dance-O Mat is open from 8am to 10pm daily.


Beautifully designed as an urban space to bring people together via spontaneous dancing, the Dance-O-Mat was originally designed in post-quake Christchurch to make use of the newly vacant spaces in the city.

Auckland Live commissioned Auckland’s very own Dance-O-Mat, which made its debut in Aotea Square in 2017. It’s very cool – and no skill or experience is required!

Parris Goebel was at the opening in 2017 and the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have also strutted and shaken their stuff on the dancefloor in Christchurch.
