Did You See Us in the Newspaper?

Did you see that DDPP-Akron was featured on the front of the Life Section in the Sunday edition of the May 19th Akron Beacon JournalClick HERE to see the on-line version of that article again.  The Beacon’s staff writer Kim Hone-McMahan compares our dance parties to the kind of fun young girls have at a slumber party.  I certainly remember dancing with abandon at the slumber parties I attended years ago.  What do you think of this metaphor?

Feel free to share the newspaper article and on-line link about DDPP-Akron with anyone you’d like to invite to join us to dance.  We’d like to see as many new dancers as possible from this great exposure–to ensure that DDPP-Akron continues and thrives into the future.  Don’t forget to remind your friends that DDPP is for every skill level–especially for those that would feel most comfortable in a non-judgmental environment.  Because that’s how we do it.

Shazam!

We’ve been experiencing a resurgence of dancers lately–and loving every minute of it!  A packed dance floor has its own energy and the fun never stops.  At our last dance party on Friday, May 17th, DJ Deeq provided us with a playlist so filled with grooves that it made everyone want to move and shake it “like a Polaroid picture.”

Show us how it’s done, Ginger Rogers!

Before we started dancing, DJ Deeq explained that she found her inspiration to create this week’s playlist by using Shazam–an audio identifying app that allows users to track and learn more about any song that one may hear on the radio, in a movie, in an elevator–wherever!  What a fun way to collect songs for a danceable music mix.  Check out her hour’s worth of music:

DJ Deeq’s hot music mix pleased everyone with a wide variety of pop songs, from Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” to Whitney Houston’s “So Emotional” and Ready for the World’s “Oh Sheila” to the 1990s pop hits by 311 and Third Eye Blind.  Several of the deejays lately have noticed that we have been lacking in working in 1990s pop hits into our playlists–many, many thanks to DJ Deeq for showing us how it’s done!

Ladies: our next dance party is FRIDAY May 31st, at 8pm in Martell’s Dance Studio in Highland Square.  It’s the fifth Friday of the month and you know what that means:  we’re dancing to a movie soundtrack!!  So put on your boogie shoes because we’re dancing to the 1970s disco hits found on the soundtrack to  SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!  Eat your heart out, John Travolta–DDPP-Akron is gonna show you how we do it!  Bring a friend because this is going to be a fun one.

Our first dance party of the month (Friday May 3rd) turned out to be a fantastic one-as Chuck Norris (above) has clearly identified.  Our deejay for the evening, MC Maynan, turned out a playlist with inspiring tunes that had everyone singing along!  That’s how you know it’s a good evening–the dance floor is filled with stomping feet and singing hearts.  Thanks again to MC Maynan for volunteering her time.  Check out her playlist:

Are you interested in providing our dancers with an hour’s worth of dance music?  Speak with one of the Den Mothers before or after the next dance party and we’ll add your name to the list.  WARNING: the fun of being a deejay may be contagious!  You may find yourself wanting to do it again and again 😀
