Catching up and Moving On

It’s been too long since my last post. We’ve had several great sessions with awesome dance mixes. This Thursday the 23rd will be the last Thursday meeting. Starting Wednesday July 6, we will be meeting on Wednesdays at 8pm. If you would like to DJ one Wednesday in July, please email me at DDPP.PHL[at]gmail[dot]com.

I know it’s been a while since I last posted a play list so I want to catch up on that. I’m sure some DDPP attendees have wondered what we were hearing.

First, going all the way back to May 19, DJ D Griff played a fantastic mix:

Play List from May 19, 2011

On June 26th, I wasn’t there and the play list for that evening is a mystery to me. I hear it was good.
I will update if I find out what it was.

On July 2nd, for better or worse, we heard another mix made by yours truly, DJ Annrockio.
I quite enjoyed it!

On June 9th. Things didn’t materialize. There was no DDPP.

Last week on June 16th, we heard an energetic mix from DJ Anna and it was rockin’ and awesome.
I will update as soon as I find out what all those songs were.

Success! Dance Dance Party Party is Back

Thanks to everyone who came out for the first week of the return of Dance Dance Party Party. It seemed like everyone had a great time. We must have really been moving because we steamed up the studio windows. We’ll have the fans on next time for some air circulation. I hope everyone plus some new ladies can make it to this week’s Dance Dance Party Party.

Part of the fun of DDPP is that anyone who wants to can take turns as the DJ (play list maker). See: So you Wanna DJ? I believe we already have a DJ for this week, but please email me at if you want to sign up for any of the following weeks in April or May.

Here is the mix that DJ Annrockio (that’s me) played Thursday, April 7th. I think it went over pretty well.

DDPP Playlist Week 1

What’s Like DDPP, but meets in Mt. Airy On Sundays?

Women’s Dance Workout! Ruth, an attendee at my first DDPP session informed me of a similar group which meets in Mt. Airy on Sundays.

Here is the flier for Women’s Dance Workout:

note: The original flier had a nice bold orange background but I lightened it here so that it’s more readable on screen.
