Friday, Feb. 9, 6:30-8:30 pm – Wendell Dance Party
Seal, Cori, Shell, Ezell and Deb T are really excited about a new Meetinghouse offering … regular freestyle Dance Party, a fun way to connect with community, enjoy inspiring DJ’d music, and dance your butt off …or however much you want…your own way! Their dance is modeled in the spirit of other community dances, like DanceSpree that ran in Northampton, that provide a safe and welcoming space to dance and express yourself and as an alternative to clubs. More details to come!
