"WHAT IS THE DECENTRALIZED DANCE PARTY?
The DDP is a boombox-powered participatory art project/80s-90s dance party/exploration of public space/life-changing experience/all-around good time.
We are attempting to bring the essence of Partying back to the People. Those who have attended one will attest that it is, without exaggeration, a life-changingly fun time.
Here's how you DDP:
1. Gear up: get a boombox. anything battery-powered with an FM radio will do - we'll all be tuning into the frequency broadcast from our Mobile Party Unit. don't have a boombox? no problem, skip directly to step 2.
2. Dress up: your best Party attire. Neon works. Burner gear works. Khakis and polo shirts... well... they work too. But they require extra enthusiasm.
3. Show up: meet at the designated Starting Location. We will not stay there for long.
4. Party Down: dance through the streets as we explore urban spaces en masse and bring some good, clean, rowdy fun to the streets.
This Party is all about creating and sharing as many unique and fun elements as possible- costumes, props, projectors, lights, sounds, smells, dance routines, etc. The only requirement is to get as crazy and elaborate as possible.
The costume theme for this Party is A Night At The Museum, to be inclusive of all types of museums, and all things you can do in a museum. Come dressed as your favorite work of art, or an art thief. Come dressed as a triceratops skeleton, or a museum docent. Come dressed as a life-sized diorama of yourself. Go wild.
Start point: Cupids Span at Rincon Park. We will leave there quickly, so be on time!!"
"Whats better than yoga? Free yoga in fresh air!
