Thank You for Giving Me the Best Day


A technical SNAFU prevented DJ Mama Bear from sharing her music mix with us as planned several months ago.  We got her back on the schedule and we finally grooved out to her hour’s worth of danceable delectables.  On Friday September 19th,  we rocked out to dance classics such as Snap!’s Rhythm is a Dancer, George Clinton’s Atomic Dog, I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston, and Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean.  We also got to try some different rhythms with songs such as Les Yeux Noirs by Coco Brival and Elias by Dispatch.  I also got my first chance to dance to Cotton Eyed Joe without fear of being caught on the Akron Rubber Ducks’ fan cam with thousands watching!  This is a strength of DDPP–we get to hear familiar and new songs and find our own rhythms to express ourselves in a non-judgmental space.  This is who we are.  Many, many thanks to DJ Mama Bear for sticking by us so we could finally get her music played, and volunteering her time and effort to help us continue doing what we do.  Check out her complete playlist:


Interested in contributing your own hour’s worth of dance music? We are currently adding deejays to the schedule–even if you’ve already contributed this year, we can offer you a second go around, if you’re willing.  Let the Den Mothers know you want to deejay, and we’ll get you on the schedule.

Don’t sit at home–come dancing!

We hope to see you at our next dance party on Friday, October 3rd.  This year October is a month that includes a fifth Friday–we already have a special playlist in mind.  You don’t want to miss out on all the spooky fun!  As always, we dance at 8pm in Martell’s Dance studio in Highland Square.  See you on the dance floor!
