Nine Ladies Dancing….

Last Friday, Dec. 16th we had more than nine ladies dancing–we also had several young girls as well!  We all tripped the light fantastic  to a worldly music mix courtesy of Chrissy Murderbot of Chicago.  This lively playlist featured songs with international destinations in the title.  I remember New York USA by Serge Gainsbourg, Panama by Van Halen and Rio by Duran Duran.  Which other songs do you recall?


I’m working on Leslie Hall’s new Razzle Dazzle dance moves–we should invite her to DDPP-Akron!!


Don’t forget about shaking your groove thang over the holidays–perhaps our most exciting event is coming up NEXT!  On Friday, Dec. 30 at 7:30pm we will be hosting our very first BY REQUEST night.  We’ll be acting out our own rhythm nation by dancing to hit songs only by Janet Jackson and choosing each new selection as we go.  No pre-recorded, pre-determined playlist on this night.  All Janet Jackson by request on Dec. 30th.  That’s Miss Jackson is you’re nasty.  See you then–7:30pm at Martell’s Dance Studio in Highland Square as usual.

‘Go Now’ Voted Most Meaningful Cool Down Song in DDPP History

Seriously, ‘Go Now’ should be our ceremonial cool down song – it is so fitting I don’t know how we didn’t think of it before!

And this gem was also showcased by DJ Deeq at our dance party on December 2nd: Gary Numan is too cool!

Please check out this ubercool playlist – a little something for everyone, even us corndogs that like MC Hammer. Obviously, DJ Deeq has eclectic taste. She has one foot planted in modern hip-hop, the other in the Motor City. At DDPP it doesn’t matter what decade you prefer as long as you dance to them all equally.

We’ll be dancing again on the 16th  and then we have our all Janet Jackson request hour on the 30th – don’t miss it.

Since you’ve got to go/Oh you had better go now.
