Mercury in Retrograde


Everyone can relate to relationship woes, so we all felt connected to DJ Dewey Dancimal’s Mercury in Retrograde mix when we danced together on Friday, October 2. We were only four, but we kept it fierce as we rocked out to loud tunes–both new and old–on the dance floor. Many thanks to DJ Dewey Dancimal for making this awesome playlist.  Check out the complete list of songs:


Remember this song?  What a creative video!

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life


Whoa–THAT was a fun one! I’m still recovering from our last dance party on Friday, Sept. 18th.  DJ Bz-Beats brought the heat to the dance floor.  Her playlist was filled with pop hits that kept the party moving.  We had a good sized crowd with a lot of high energy–and the dancers were mostly first-timers!  Our Den Mother Juniper missed it–but she’ll be back for the next one.  Many of the first-time dancers expressed how eager they are for the next dance party.  I think they get our vibe!

Many thanks to our deejay for the evening.  Check out DJ Bz-Beats complete playlist:


Won’t you join us at our next dance party?  Every party offers a unique experience. We’ll be dancing again on Friday, October 2nd, 8pm at Martell’s Studio in Highland Square as usual.  We always dance on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month.  Note: the month of October has a 5th Friday (October 30th) so we’ll be dancing that day as well.  So much to look forward to!  See you on the dance floor.

Welcome to the Dark Side

How dark can you go?  Our ladies at the last party on Friday September 4th discovered we can go pretty black–and keep dancing!  Know how to dance goth?  No matter–that didn’t stop any of us either.  We had a rollicking time kicking up our heels to dark anthems from dj grrrilla beats.  We danced to tunes from Sisters of Mercy, Ministry, Lords of the New Church, and Nine Inch Nails as well as DDPP regulars like Pet Shop Boys, The Smiths, and The Cure.  It was quite a bit of fun.  Of course, we warmed up by watching the goth dance instructional before the music started.  Remember this?

In the Mood

At our last dance party on Friday, Aug. 21st, our dancers were “in the mood” for a feel-good dance event.  DJ Random Select provided us with an hour’s worth of toe-tapping fun that provided numerous 90s hits and swing jazz tunes.  How cool is that?  Well, those in attendance know exactly how cool it was.  Chillin’, in fact!  When was the last time you hit the dance floor to The Pixies’ “Gigantic” or Luscious Jackson’s “Naked Eye?”  It was a great night.

Many thanks to DJ Random Select for stepping up and providing our playlist.  Check it out:


Ready to dance with us again?  Our next dance party is Friday, Sept. 4th at 8pm.  This is the last dance party of the summer (that’s Labor Day weekend, if you didn’t know it yet.)  Join us for the hour–it’s the perfect way to kick-off the weekend.  See you on the dance floor.

Don’t Stop Me Now

Sorry for the delay–I guess I’m still in full summer vacation mode.  But the passion and high energy from our last dance party, Friday August 7th, should carry us up til now.  Everyone in attendance had a rockin’ good time to the beat of an inspiring, motivating playlist, courtesy of DJ Big Balla.  Muchas gracias to DJ Big Balla for providing us with our music last time.  Where would we be without our awesome deejays?  Standing motionless on the dance floor, that’s where!  We keep on dancing because we continue to have the best deejays supporting us.  Thanks ladies–and thanks DJ Big Balla.  For her complete playlist, see below:

My delay in writing the event review for last time means our next dance party is quite near.  Yes, get your dancing shoes on because we dance again TOMORROW: Friday August 21st, 8pm at Martell’s Dance Studio in Highland Square as usual.  I’m ready–how about you?  We welcome DJ Random Select who promises a playlist that leans heavily on 90s hits.  Let’s kick up our heels and enjoy the remainder of the summer.  See you on the dance floor.

Freaks & Geeks

Bill Haverchuck (played by actor Martin Starr) is everyone’s favorite geek on the 1999 TV series Freaks & Geeks.  What a joy it was to follow Bill’s example and dance to the soundtrack of the series.  Last week’s Fifth Friday dance party (July 31st) was a lot of fun.  Did everyone enjoy themselves as much as I did?  Many thanks to dj grrrilla beats for providing us with our music for the evening.  Check out the complete list of songs:


Wait–hold up!  Even though you may have missed our dance party last Friday, we dance again THIS FRIDAY, Aug 7th.  It’s the first Friday in August and we’re welcoming DJ Big Balla to get our toes tapping.  Please join us to enjoy as much of the summer as we have left.  We’ll meet at Martell’s as usual–and we begin at 8pm.  See you on the dance floor.

Shake It Off


At our last dance party, we hosted a large crowd despite the distraction of the holiday weekend. On Friday, July 3rd, we danced our patriotic feet off to a girl-centric, inspiring playlist that was provided to us from DJ Bulee.  Our music setlist included songs by Chaka Khan, Taylor Swift, Diana Ross, and more.  What songs would you select for a girl power playlist?  Here’s what DJ Bulee came up with:


Many thanks to DJ Bulee for providing us with music.  Our next dance party is Friday, July 17th at 8pm, as usual.  Don’t forget: we will also be dancing on Friday July 31–the fifth Friday of the month.  Our playlist for that special event will be songs from the TV series Freaks and Geeks.  I can hardly wait!  See you on the dance floor.
