No Two DDPPs are Quite the Same

Ann-Margret–just what are your secrets?

No two dance nights are quite the same–which is what makes DDPP a thrilling Friday experience!  We greatly thank DJ Trophy Bass for reminding us of this truism with the eclectic mix we enjoyed last Friday, April 15th.  The deep cuts included a wide variety of rhythms, beats and jazz flute solos to inspire us to put on our boogie shoes.  (No, there wasn’t a KC & the Sunshine Band song–see the playlist below.)

Those in attendance–and we had a large crowd–know that there were several firsts at this past DDPP.  One new experience was watching a den mother chase an escaped tutu across the back parking lot.  Another was dancing our cool down song to the haunting melodies of the theme from the 1968 Roman Polanski movie Rosemary’s Baby.  However, my favorite first of the night occured when I became inspired by one of the fast-paced dance songs–one that reminded me of what Ann-Margret might have danced to in one of her Las Vegas shows in the early 1970s.  Inspired, I channeled my inner Ann-Margret and attempted to express the enthusiasm and spirit that she is well known for.  Unfortunately, I soon realized I have… very little inner Ann-Margret.

This month the calendar is granting us a fifth Friday and so we will be dancing again on April 29th.  We will start at 7:30 at Martell’s Dance Studio as usual.  Come and shake your booty (yes, another KC & the Sunshine Band reference!) on the night before CraftyMart Presents: The Mom and Pop Shoppe (Saturday, April 30th) at Musica from 10 am to 5pm.  I hope to see everyone at DDPP and The Mom and Pop Shoppe.
