Prince-Love-Symbol-1024x768

Many of our regular dancers have been touched by the sudden loss of Prince. So last week, Friday April 29th we decided to reschedule our DJ battle and replay a playlist made up entirely of Prince songs. The catharsis was powerful. It was also heartwarming to see the dance floor filled with so many others who also wanted to celebrate the life of the artist. Although we joke about “no crying on the dance floor,” we aren’t joking when we say DDPP-Akron is a no judgement zone.  We dance our emotions–even in difficult times. Many thanks to the dancers who came together to celebrate Prince and honor our devotion to one of the great artists of the last 100 years.

The evening’s playlist was actually one derived from a 2012 Prince dance party. Hugs, kisses, and thanks to The Den Mother for her help in tweaking the earlier playlist to replay for our needs this past week. Here’s the complete playlist from last week:

Ready to get back on the dance floor? Good–we dance again THIS WEEK! Friday, May 6th at 8pm we’ll do it all again. Remember we dance every 1st, 3rd, (and 5th) Friday of each month. Mark your calendars now for the best Friday night activity in Akron. See you on the dance floor 🙂
