You’ve got the fever. You like to get down. You are a dancing fool. You just wish you could strut your stuff a little more in this town. You’re not alone!
This is our city and our dance scene. It is what we make it. So let’s make it awesome. We want more dancing in St. Louis, more diverse events, more new dancers. We want everybody to fall in love with Swing, Tango, Contra, Salsa... you name it, we want more.
Here’s how we do that: we tell all our friends and coworkers about dance events coming up and go on and on about how fun and laid back it is. We beg them to join us. We gently shoot down their excuses. Then we show them a few moves in the living room or bring them to a beginners lesson or just haul them out to the floor and get funky. They will thank you.
We go to places where dancing occurs and keep an eagle eye out for those folks on the edges who look longingly at the twirling couples but haven’t quite worked up the nerve to jump into the fray. We introduce ourselves and smile encouragingly and we ask them to dance. We teach them to love the rhythm. We encourage them to ask questions and experiment and have a great time. This one friendly act could change their view of dancing forever. You’ll have given them the gift of the boogie.
We’d love to see you get involved with No Partner Required!
We are looking for volunteers. It’s just about the easiest and most fun role you can imagine: Attend dancing events proudly displaying a N.P.R t-shirt or button. (We’ll try to make an announcement introducing you as one of the good guys for all the new kids in the house.) Then you wander around offering to break the ice and show the less experienced attendees a good time. Ask people to dance. Get the party going. Just be yourself and share the love!Give us a shout to learn more.
Bring NPR to Your Event!
Are you involved with another social event that could benefit from some experienced dancers to get the crowd engaged and moving? Contact Us about a strategic partnership. You provide the crowd and music and we’ll bring our dance enthusiasts!
Get Involved and Spread the Dance!
Does this cause really move you? We’re looking for a media captain to help us promote events on the Internet and/or around town and with venues. Please Contact Us if you’d like to get involved.
