She promised the playlist was crazy, and the output of sweat confirmed that. I needed a good workout, and this mix delivered. Here’s the link to listen in Spotify, and a screenshot below:
Happy New Year! There are so many opportunities to get down in the next 365 days. The first being this Tuesday (1/6) for a very special DDPP. We are going FULL OUT BEYONCÉ. Come kick off the year righteously with an entire hour playlist of old & new Beyoncé. Bring your surfborts!
And now, as blogging has been somewhat neglected due to being pre-occupied with Christmas cookies, here are DDPP playlists from December:
12/9/2014 – DJ Jamosaurus Tex – Here’s a link to the open Spotify playlist, and screenshot below:
12/2/2014 – DJ Pixie Cuts:
Alert: the time is now to cover your bod with a head-turning Dance Dance Party Party shirt.
To guarantee your size/desired style gets ordered, please place an order using this Order Form.
New Thing #1: Wouldn’t you like to socialize with all the cool and interesting ladies that come to DDPP? Sometime in November we’ll have a DDPP social night where we just hangout (but you can dance if you want to) and get to know each other outside the studio. If it’s popular, it may become a monthly thing. Stay tuned for a time & place.
New Thing #2: DDPP Austin will be selling t-shirts and tanks soon. Yessssssss.
And now, the playlists:
DJ DJ from Roseanne subbed in the past 2 weeks. We got Nasty with Janet, heard some of the new Prince, became one-winged doves with Stevie, lamented being overworked and underpaid with Dolly’s 9 to 5, and finally — Shook it Off with T. Swift.
Happy fall, all you beauties. We’re still shakin’ it every Tuesday at Brass Ovaries and see no end in sight. A few reminders/announcements:
- DDPP is ‘pay what you want’ and we mean it. If your strapped for cash, we still want you to come. The suggested donation is $5-$10, and that covers studio rental and insurance. Cash accepted, or you can pay with credit card/paypal on your own time with this link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=5QBTE66P877ZN
- If you are interested in DJ-ing, please ask me (Christine) at class, or send a message to the Facebook page.
- Our venue, Brass Ovaries, has been so good to us that I encourage you to check out their classes. They have pole classes, but also offer lots of other options like Ballet Tone and Twerk Fit (!!)
I haven’t posted in awhile, so here are some playlists from September/October:
DJ Schak Attack – 9/2/2014:
DJ Jojo – 9/16/2014:
DJ Squirrel Attack! – 9/23/2014
DJ EZ Bake – 9/30/2014
DJ Generic Thug – 10/14/2014
A remnant of when life was measured by the school year calendar, I still consider August to be the end of summer. It always feels like the latter weeks of August are a last hurrah. So DDPP has felt extra ‘last day of vacation’-y these past 2 weeks. It’s been so much fun spending the summer sweating it out at Brass Ovaries. Especially appreciated is the abundance of adorable animals hanging around. A couple weeks ago we proved how “no judgment” DDPP really is when Olive the pig joined us:
On 8/19 we had the pleasure of DJ Schweet Tea’s first (and hopefully not last) mix. She’s a mother of twins, and still finds time to make it to DDPP most Tuesdays. She rocked the house with a no-breaks playlist. ‘Super Freak’ seemed to be the crowd favorite, not far ahead of the made-for-pole-swinging ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me’. Full mix:
Video: India Arie
So What: P!nk
Bad Girl: Donna Summer
Pour Some Sugar on Me: Def Leppard
Shut Up and Let me Go: The Tings Tings
Blame it on the Boogie: Michael Jackson
Bamboleo: Gipsy Kings
Super Freak: Rick James
Funkytown (remix) : Lipps Inc
She’s A Rebel: Green Day
Black or White: Michael Jackson
Sir Duke: Stevie Wonder
Oh Mickey: Toni Basil
I ain’t Movin: Des’ree
This past Tuesday, 8/26, we had a special farewell mix from DJ IAIA (aka Casey Bee) who is moving to LA. She has also been a faithful DDPP-er for some time now. Sometimes saying goodbye is tough, and the best expression of the sentiment is punk rock kicking across the dance floor. Truly, it does a better job than words. Here is the full playlist:
Head Over Heels – Tears for Fears
Forever – Haim
Into the Groove – Madonna
Midnight City – M83
Fell in Love with a Girl – The White Stripes
Gimme Shelter – The Rolling Stones
Let’s Go Crazy – Prince & The Revolution
Blister in the Sun – Violent Femmes
Disco 2000 – Pulp
Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt – We Are Scientists
Bank Holiday – Blur
La Camisa Negra – Juanes
Welcome to the Working Week – Elvis Costello
Just Like Heaven – The Cure
Kids in America – The Muffs
More Than This – Roxy Music
…See you in September!
