7News Spotlight: July 3

Love is in the Air as Sonia Kruger, Tara Morice & Paul Mercurio reunite to celebrate Strictly Ballroom's 30th anniversary.

On Sunday, 7News Spotlight will celebrate Strictly Ballroom ahead of its 30th anniversary, by reuniting three cast members.

Sonia Kruger reunites with Tara Morice and Paul Mercurio, revisiting original sets, with a performance by John Paul Young.

Fans of Baz Luhrmann’s directorial debut will be wowed by the reunion three decades after it took the Cannes Film Festival by storm and inspired a new generation to take up the beloved art of ballroom dancing.

Kruger and company watch the film together for the first time since its Australian premiere in 1992, revealing saucy set secrets and how her role as dancer Tina Sparkle saw her quit her “real” job and begin her own career in showbiz.

The Gold Logie-nominated presenter talks to Mercurio and Morice about the impact the movie had on their lives, returning to Granville Town Hall where pop icon John Paul Young performs the film’s chart-topping anthem in a fabulous feathered finale.

The movie has been digitally remastered in 4K quality for the anniversary of this celebration of Aussie suburbia, which encouraged its audience to embrace life – and all its quirks – to the full.

Join in this magical dance down memory lane and recapture the big screen sparkle which won over the world.

7pm Sunday on Seven.
