No Lights, No Lycra: Mongolian Edition

No Lights, No Lycra has a fairly no fuss ethos: “no light, no lycra, no teacher, no steps to learn, no technique, just free movement. NLNL is a space where you can completely let go, shake out the stresses of the week, and lose yourself in the music and the physicality of your body. NLNL is a daggy, non-pretentious place to completely be yourself.”

I would add that NLNL is also about: no shame, no judgement, no worries.

The spirit of the NLNL movement is well and truly alive in UB. Every Tuesday night a group gathers to shake it out like Florence, shake it off Swift style, and do it again (one more time) ala Robyn & Röyksopp. The group is predominantly expat, female, Gen Y, and white, but the occasional barrier breaker manages to diversify the NLNL crew to the delight of the regulars.



  1. I love the international appeal of NLNL!
