dance-more-worry-lessI don’t know about all of you, but I kind of hate New Year’s resolutions. Not only am I not very good at keeping them, but I’ve always found it all a bit too cookie-cutter for me. I’ll make changes in my life when I’m good and ready to make them, and I don’t need the calendar to tell me when to do so.

But, despite my usual reluctance towards New Year’s resolutions, I’ve made a very important one this year: DANCE MORE, WORRY LESS.

Dancing is one of the best stress relievers I’ve found in life, and so over the past few years, I’ve found an awesome way to make dancing a regular part of my routine by being a den mother at Dance Dance Party Party Toronto. No idea what I’m talking about? Read on.

The short(-ish) and sweet summary: Dance Dance Party Party is a women-only freestyle dance session with only three rules: no boys, no booze, and no judgement. There are no instructors, and no dance moves to follow – it’s just an hour and 15 minutes of super fun dancing time! It’s like going out to the club with your friends, but you don’t have to dress up, pay cover, or get hit on by guys when you really just want to dance. And trust me, you don’t have to have ANY dancing talent whatsoever, either! We’re all just there to have fun.

I’m one of the co-organizers of the Toronto chapter (the original DDPP started back in 2006 in NYC), and I LOVE spreading the word about our dance parties. When I’m dancing in the Mad For Dance basement studio at 263 Adelaide St W., there’s really no place I’d rather be.

Want to join in on the fun? We’ll be getting our groove on in January on the 5th and 19th, both from 3:30-5pm at Mad For Dance. Get all the details over at DDPP Toronto.
