What do professional dancers, crews, troupes, fitness instructors, aerobics buffs, dance enthusiasts and most youth have in common? We have no place to express our love of dance, to be exuberant, just for the fun of it, with enough space to move and to music that speaks the universal language of movement. This, fellow dancers, is why People of the Beat created Dancers’Night; this night’s for you.
Dancers’Night was conceived by dancers who wanted to move, in the company of passionate dancers of all ages, in a huge space, dressed in sweat pants, if that’s how they’re comfortable or stilettos if that’s what they prefer, to dance music and hip-hop through rock and rock-and-roll to latin and country; if it’s perfect for dancing, it makes the playlist. The six-hour event, at Bender Arena (American University) on 6 April 2013, is spiced up by dance instructors, crews, schools and companies who dance as part of the crowd to energize all. A unique feature of Dancers’Night is its community aspect. All attendees, whether professional or amateur, are inducted into one of the five tribes of the People of the Beat. Tickets for the DC event are now on sale at peopleofthebeat.simpletix.
