Fall Fantasia


Hasn’t this Fall weather been fantastic?  Our dancers have been loving it as well.  Cool nights and the darkened room make dancing comfortable and effortless.  For those of us that appreciate dancing unseen–even incognito–under the darkness of the unlit room, these Fall nights have been perfect.  This past dance party on Friday October 17, DJ Swizzle kept the dancers moving with her hip-hop-tastic  music mix.  Many thanks to her.



Note the time change: we dance at 7PM on Fri Oct. 31st!

Even more exciting, we’ve got a fifth Friday during the month of October–Friday Oct. 31st.  We have a special music mix planned with spooky, perhaps even horror-inspired danceable music for our Halloween night dance party!  It’s a special mix collected by four of our dancers.  For the ease of dancers planning on partying on that night–we have bumped our dance party up an hour earlier.  Yes, we’re dancing at 7pm on Friday, Oct. 31st.  Now you have time to dance at 7pm and still make it home to attend your friends’ party that night!  So plan on having a howling good time.  We dance again at 7pm on Friday Oct. 31st.  Bring a friend–costumes are welcome.  See you on the dance floor!

What a Marvelous Night for a Moon Dance


Autumn nights have turned cooler and the sun sets earlier.  Our dance floor is now the perfect atmosphere for comfort and unseen expression while we dance.  Our last dance party on Friday October 3 was a little wet outside but otherwise the perfect Fall evening for dancing.  Though we experienced a few technical difficulties, we danced with little concern.  Our first time deejay, DJ Ginger Snap, provided us with a rockin’ music mix that kept us spinning.


With even more daring, she challenged herself by creating a themed mix incorporating musical references to the astronomical.  I think she deserves extra points for working in the song “Locked Out of HEAVEN” by Bruno MARS.  How clever is DJ Ginger Snap!?  Plenty–that’s for sure.  Thanks again to DJ Ginger Snap for her efforts to keep us dancing!


Another piece of business–Did every one hear?  DDPP-Akron was voted Favorite Group/Organization in a poll this summer hosted by the blog Akron Empire.com.  YAYY!  Thanks to everyone who voted!  Check out the original announcement HERE.

We’ve got a full month in October with plenty of opportunities to join us to dance.  Our next dance party is Friday, October 17, 8pm at Martell’s in Highland Square.  Mark your calendars for Friday, Oct. 31st as well–we have an extra special Halloween-inspired dance party for the fifth Friday of this month.  You don’t want to miss out!  See you on the dance floor!
