Welcome to the Minneapolis/St. Paul chapter of the woman-only cult phenomenon known as Dance Dance Party Party (DDPP)! Two evenings a month, we get together for an hour-long, no-holds-barred, freestyle dance session. Unlike typical workout or dance classes, Dance Dance Party Party has no instructors, no fitness goals, and nothing to prove. There are merely three rules in DDPP:
- No boys. Experience a lady-centric, positive space!
- No booze. Embrace your clear-headed natural exuberance!
- No judgement. Express yourself with zero side-eye!
DDPP Twin Cities meets two times a month, generally second and fourth Sundays, at 6:15 p.m. sharp—check the Schedule for a complete list of upcoming sessions. We get together at Smiling Lune Studio in Uptown Minneapolis. Each session lasts an hour and includes a cool-down song at the end of the mix; everybody takes turns DJing and anyone can sign up to create a playlist, as long as they have attended at least one DDPP session before. Any and all genres of music are welcome (we’ll dance to anything)—check out our blog of playlists and our Song Database for some examples of what gets us moving. Although donations are much-appreciated to help pay for the space, DDPP is free.
DDPP’s mission is simple: a relaxed, welcoming environment for fun, spontaneous expression (and exercise, if you’re into that kind of thing). Whether this is your first time dancing with other people or you’re cutting a rug at da club nightly; whether your jams of choice are Beyoncé or Big Black; we’re very excited to dance with you. See you soon!
