DDPP’s birthday month was hot > hotter > hottest. DJ Harvey placed his playlist into our sweaty palms on Feb 2nd and DJ Dewey Dancimal got us all hot and bothered on Feb 16th. We celebrated 7 years on the dance floor by covering it in sweat, as we always do!

This was also our first chance to really celebrate Bowie’s life after his passing in January. DJ Harvey’s mix did an excellent job of making us reflective but not actually reduced to tears on the dance floor. There is no crying in DDPP!

 

Spring Fever 2016

Dress for the warmer weather and prepare to sweat!

 

We’ve finally had a break in the cold, wet weather and Spring is putting a lift in everyone’s step! At our last dance party, Friday, April 15th, we had a fantastic number of women turn up to get their boogie on. It was also exciting to welcome back a dancer we haven’t seen in a while! The tunes were flowin’ and good vibes were in the air. Check out this playlist from DJ Dancin’ D-VA:

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: your DDPP-Akron Den Mothers are up to something! They are planning a special event coming up soon. It’s gonna be a DDPP Prom where we come together on a special evening, invite male guests to dance, and we raise money for a worthwhile charity. We’ll have more details soon so please keep an eye out for this fun happening.

 

 

Many thanks to DJ Dancin’ D-VA for putting together this past week’s awesome music mix. Next up: we dance in 2 weeks: Friday April 29th. It’s a fifth Friday in April–so plan on spending it DANCING! Then, we’ll dance again on the next month’s 1st Friday: May 6th. There’s so much goodness coming up, I can barely stand it. Music always starts at 8pm. See you on the dance floor.

 

 

Island Rhythms

Our last dance party was a blast! Friday, April 1st we were on our toes to a music mix filled with Latin/Caribbean inspired rhythms. It may have been cold and dreary in Northeast Ohio that day, but we were swaying to warm breezes and sandy beach fantasies at Martell’s. Every week’s playlist is something new–what do you think we may dance to next time? Join us and find out. The surprise is half the fun. Many thanks to DJ Bz-Beats for the playlist–and the assist from DJ Dewey Dancimal. Check out last week’s playlist:

We’d love for you to join us again this month. We dance on Friday, April 15, 8pm at Martell’s in Highland Square. Not only is it good exercise, it’s a good way to kick off the weekend!  See you on the dance floor 🙂
