1992’s ‘Rhythm is a Dancer’ by Snap!

Last Friday night, July 1st, we hit the dance floor at full speed with C+C Music Factory’s hit song ‘Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now).’  And we kept on moving to the full tilt playlist that was mixed for us by DJ Dancin’ D-VA.  Her theme was songs with the word ‘dance.’  She also included Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ which features a particular dance (“Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it. Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it–Vogue!”) as well as songs from the 1980s dance movie Flashdance and the 1980s TV series Fame.

If you were making a dance playlist with a theme, what theme would you choose? Thanks again to DJ Dancin’ D-VA for her amazing dance mix.

Our next dance event is Friday July 15th, 7:30 pm at Martell’s Dance Studio in bustling Highland Square, the heart of Akron.  This month we are lucky enough for the calendar to grant us a fifth Friday–so plan on joining us on Friday July 29th as well.

Who invited him?

And, while you’ve got your calendar out, circle Friday, October 14th.  While that may be a few months away yet, consider joining us for our first ever Dance Dance Party Party Homecoming Coming.  (If you repeat it out loud several times, it’s actually alot of fun to say!)  This will be a special dance event where men are invited.  Do you have a husband, boyfriend, brother, or male friend that’s curious about DDPP?  Then bring him along.  All our past male DJs will be invited as well.  This is sort of our version of DDPP Prom–without having to wait until Spring to throw the party!  More details will follow later.  Mark your calendars now!
