Guardians of the Galaxie Night


Last Friday–Jan. 30th–was our movie soundtrack dance party and we had a blast.  DJ Dewy Dancimal provided us with a playlist derived from the 2014 hit movie GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXIE.  Sonic joy was had by all as we rocked out to a set list of songs from the late 1960s through the 1970s.  But you’ve seen the movie, right?  We might have had a smaller crowd than usual–hey, where was everybody?–those loyal few in attendance found their groove to these classics.  If you missed last Friday’s dance party, don’t fret.  We dance again in one week!  That’s right–check your calendars.  We dance every 1st, 3rd, (and when their is one, the 5th) Friday of every month.  Next Friday–Feb. 6th, 2015–is the first Friday of the month, so put on your boogie shoes.  For inspiration, check out DJ Dewy Dancimal’s complete playlist from last week:


Many thanks to DJ Dewy Dancimal for volunteering her time and passion for dance music to provide us with a playlist.  Do you want to become a deejay?  Our Den Mother Juniper is currently scheduling for late spring and looking for volunteers.  Join the conversation on our facebook group to volunteer an hour’s worth of dance music.  Or, talk to her after our next dance party and she can add your name to the schedule.

Grab a girl friend and join us at our next dance party–Friday, Feb. 6th.  We start at 8pm, so don’t be late.  Still not sure what Dance Dance Party Party-Akron is all about?  Read all about us from a recent visitor who wrote about her experiences for The Devil Strip:  See you on the dance floor!

Birthday Mix


Last week, it was DJ Dewy Dancimal’s birthday but she was the one handing out presents!  She gifted our dance party on Friday, Jan. 16th, with a rockin’ playlist for the hottest dance floor in town.  DJ Dewy Dancimal created a set list from her favorite songs to host a party for us all!  What songs would you put on your birthday music mix?  Here’s the complete list from DJ Dewy Dancimal:


She also made her set list available on Spotify–click here for the link to hear and enjoy the music mix again.  Many thanks to DJ Dewey Dancimal for sharing her birthday with us.

In other news, did you see we got written up on-line by The Devil Strip–the brand new magazine here in Akron?  The Devil Strip is a curated guide to the area’s music, arts, business, events and culture.  Click here for the link to the Devil Strip review of an earlier January dance party.  While you’re at it, follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter to stay in touch with what’s happening around town.


When will dance again?  Glad you asked!  The calendar has blessed the month of January with a 5th Friday–so we dance again this month: January 30th, 8pm.  Since it’s a 5th Friday, you know what that means.  We dance to a movie soundtrack.  This months movie soundtrack is Guardians of the Galaxy.  I know!  So you don’t want to miss it.  See you on the dance floor.

No January ‘blahs’ here!

And we were definitely doing the Snoopy dance last Friday (1/2) to DJ Owly B’s super, having-no-theme-is-my-theme playlist. She mixed it up, she pulled form here and there, she let the groove lead her. Or maybe she just used a Magic 8-Ball. Whatever got her there, it worked, turning a ‘blah’ day into a DDPP day! See the list below if you need proof:



We dance again soon – 1/16 to be exact! More ladies are joining us from Meetup and more ladies are bringing friends with them to DDPP. We say ‘bring ’em on’!
