It was a dark and stormy night this past Thursday, and a good portion of us dancers arrived soaked to the bone. Luckily, DDPP provided the perfect environment to warm our souls and dry our socks.
A week before, one of our newest ladies, Kel-c, asked if she could make a mix tape for the upcoming class. Unfortunately, our lovely stereo system did not include a cassette deck. Unfazed, Kel-c showed up with an old walkman in tow, which worked with our input jack perfectly.
Thus, DJ Low-Fi was born. And let me tell you, the jams did not stop! (Well, except to switch to side 2.) I’ve danced to some crazy shit in my days, but it will be hard to top dancing to an old Richard Simmons recording. “Inhale! Exhale” This is for YOUUUUUUU!”
If you can believe it though, the class got even BETTER. Thursday marked the night when Judie, dance vet extraordinaire, used her frequent dancer card to get a free class. Dreams can come true, ladies, and we celebrated this momentous occasion with lots of beautiful little cupcakes. Oh, it was a sight to behold.
So thanks ladies, for constantly raising the bar, and never ceasing to amaze me. And kudos again to DJ Low-Fi, for rocking decades-old technology harder than I could rock a brand new iPod. And now, the amazing mix lovingly transferred from vinyl just for us:
Be sure to join us this Thursday, when Judie celebrates her new frequent dancer card with her first ever DJ mix! Can’t wait to see what’s in store!
