What is Dance Dance Party Party?
It's simple: No Boys. No Booze. No Judgment. (Legwarmers Optional)
Dance Dance Party Party is a women-only freestyle dance session happening all over this great Earth. But what does that mean? Women from all ages dance to an eclectic mix of dance songs, and leave as friends, refreshed. It's like reliving that late-night dance party from a sleep-over party you had when you were 10. It also just so happens to be incredible exercise that you don't even realize you're doing.
Location: The Button Factory (25 Regina St. S, Waterloo)
When: The 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month, 6:00pm-7:00pm
Who: All folks who are female-identified. Children who want to participate and dance with us are also welcome.
How much: Bring $5 to contribute to the space rental. Children are free.
What to bring: Dancing shoes, comfy, cool clothes (you will break a sweat), a water bottle.
Contact: Email to join our mailing list or like us on Facebook.
