Funky Fresh Spring Fling


Last night, April 1st, was our special event of the social season.  We set the dance floor on fire inspired by a music mix from our sister DDPP in Chicago, crafted by DJ Chrissey Murderbot.  This playlist featured that one-of-a-kind sound of early 1990s hip hop also known as New Jack Swing.  It offered pop hits by Bell Biv Devoe, Boyz II Men, Tevin Campbell, and Another Bad Creation.  But the single “I Wanna Sex You Up” performed by Color Me Badd is what most made the night sparkle with the memories of the  TV series Beverly Hills 90210.

The dancing was so fierce it was a welcome relief to catch our breathes and share a brief social break with popsicles and bottled water.  We set a new attendance record on Friday night and hope that many dancers will return for our next dance event.  As always, we will be dancing on the third Friday of the month–April 15th–at 7:30 pm at Martell’s Dance Studio.  Dancers can expect that we’ll be back to our regular format:  a pop music playlist for a solid hour’s worth of dancing.

Thanks again to Kathleen Folkerth for covering Akron’s DDPP in The Westside Leader, Allison Perley-Harter for the video for The Akronist and, of course, to all the new friends and dancers who came out to join us.  If you are interested, you can follow the Akron DDPP schedule here or join the Facebook group ‘Dance Dance Party Party-Akron’.  See you all again on Friday April 15th.
