BIG BIRTHDAY NON DANCER.png

big free bday nondancer 

Whoaaa it's been 9 years of doing this! Thank YOU for showing up, encouraging us + being a part of it all! We love you!

To thank you for putting up with us for 9 years of ridiculous antics, we're throwing a BIG MONDAY NIGHT DANCE PARTY. An all-welcome, just-for-fun, totally-free admission ZOOM NONDANCER. 

MONDAY, JUNE 28TH - 8:00PM - 8:45PM EST 

ZOOM:  https://us04web.zoom.us/j/76795355952

 

If it's your first time joining us at a NONDANCER, in NONDancing we radically set the bar so. gloriously. low. Using absurd imagery we will gather and learn a piece of unison choreography to a ridiculously obvious pop song. We will repeat this choreography, laughing at ourselves and trying to conjure the feeling of superstardom.
