No Lights No Lycra (NLNL) has partnered with Earth Hour for the global dance event Switch off and Dance. Officially down for March 28, the event has been moved to April 1 so as not to clash with the Hong Kong Sevens. All NLNL locations worldwide will be switching off and dancing to the same tunes across the globe. Dance your socks off in the dark for a good cause and help raise awareness for climate change. HK$50. All donations go to EARTH HOUR. B/F, 353-363 Des Voeux Road West, Sai Wan
