A place where people dance to just feel the music

If you love to dance to music but hate the events where you’re “supposed” to have a partner there is an interesting alternative for you.

Every third Saturday the public (kids welcome) can enjoy live drumming and dance freestyle. The whole point is to just feel the music and let your body move to it. No dance partners are needed because you’re essentially dancing with a group.

It offers a space for anyone who wants to dance without rules to a variety of music including live drumming. The dance is a smoke and alcohol free environment. No shoes are allowed but dancing in your socks is fine.

Elise Rivers of Mt. Airy Community Acupuncture organizes the Philadelphia Barefoot Boogie. She holds them at the Philadelphia Dance Theater studio on the New Covenant Campus.

The next Barefoot Boogie will be Sat, March 19. Admission is $10.
