In 2009 Neridah Waters and Fez Fa’anana wanted to go to The National Circus Festival for free, so they proposed running a dance workshop to Pulp’s song Common People. This workshop was so popular that it led to a huge flash-mob performance witnessed by the entire festival audience. Thus, the Common People Dance Project was born. Since then they have been invited to run dance projects at Adelaide Fringe Festival, Brisbane Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival, Perth Circus Festival, Surfers Paradise Festival, StreetFest (Canada) and Glastonbury Festival (UK). It has inspired a number of groups nationally and internationally and now they are running regular classes, workshops, and projects.
