What: The Annual Regional Meet Up & DJ Throwdown
When: 14 December 2013, 7pm - 11pm
Where: Flying Monkey Arts Center, Huntsville, AL
Cost: General - $10, Students $7
The battle gong has sounded and DJs from around the Southeast United States are making their way to Huntsville, Alabama as the Huntsville Swing Dance Society presents the Regional Meetup and DJ battle, Dec. 14 at the Flying Monkey Arts Center, 2211 Seminole Dr.
If you only make it to one dance weekend in Huntsville in 2013, this is THE weekend!
DJs from five sister dance scenes will battle it out throughout the night and YOU will decide who emerges victorious. How you ask? WITH QUARTERS! Fun fact: quarters have been the leading method to decide champions for two millennia. So we’ve heard… Admission to the dance will gain you some quarters, but don’t let us limit your voting power! Empty your couch cushions, the center console of your car, or that change pile you have no idea what to do with and bring the votes! The DJ who earns the most quarters will be the champion!
While the DJ battle keeps the floor hopping, take some time to get to know the dancers that make up the Southeastern swing dance community. There will be food. There will be conversation. There will be dancing. What’s not to like?
The evening starts with a beginner Lindy Hop lesson at 7 p.m. and the battle commences at the stroke of 8:00 and rages until 11 p.m. Admission is $10 for general public and $7 for students / active military.
But wait, there’s more!
There will be a late night after the main dance providing music, fun and probably more food well into the early morning. Details will be given at the dance.
And then, Sunday, at 10 a.m. it’s time to BAL-AST off into Balboa as Kadie and Joe Pangburn teach a one-day workshop taking you from zero to balboa in just four hours. Details can be found by clicking HERE.
Housing is available, but let us know early if you are looking to stay overnight so we can get you squared away.
We can’t wait to see you there!
