Dane Dances! Monona Terrace Rooftop Garden

Dane Dances!

Bands will be playing between 5:30 - 9:30 PM


Location: Monona Terrace Rooftop Garden

AUGUST 23- Monona Terrace Rooftop

DJ VPS @ 5:30 & 7:30

Nabori - 6:00-7:30


Bands Playing Nabori/V05/DJ VPS


The Dane Dances are going to be here soon!  For those of you who love to dance and listen to great music, come and join the Energizers for a night of fun!  A night you can strut your stuff on the rooftop!  I am not familiar with Nabori band; however, V05 is great music if you like the Bee Gees, ABBA, Pointer Sisters, Donna Summer, and various hit music from the 70’s!

According to John C. in the postings below, "Nabori is the main band for Noche Picante, the dance 'til you drop Salsa event in Madison every year. Muy caliente. Very long songs, we often "tag team" the dances (dance 3 minutes fast, hot salsa then tag someone in to continue... 
This would be one exhausting night for salseros and disco ducks."

Food and beverages are available on the garden rooftop.

In case of inclement weather, rain location To Be Announced. Usually the event is moved to the indoors. Monona Terrace phone number:  261-4000 after 2pm on the day of the event to confirm.

I will have some chairs set up.  When facing the stage we will be on the left side and close to the front so we can dance the night away. I will be there early between 4:45 and 5:00 p.m. if anyone wants to come and join me. I am looking forward to seeing you there!

Note:  This event is also being hosted by Mid Life and Moving Forward. The two meet-up groups will more than likely be together, so keep an eye out for me or Dana when trying to find us. http://www.meetup.com/Mid-Life-and-Moving-Forward/events/127096782/?a=ea1_grp&rv=ea1

Since these are really popular events, I suggest you arrive early because there is a capacity limit for the amount of people to be on the rooftop of the Monona Terrace.  If you plan on arriving later in the night you may be waiting in a line to get to the roof.











Hi, I am Lori, the host of this event and Co-Organizer for Energizer's. To help many of you in finding our group I uploaded the most recent photo of me. There are so many people who attend this event, do come early, if you can.  At 5:15 & 5:45 p.m. I will stand on a wall for about 5 to 10 minutes close to where we are, so be on the lookout for me, I should be easy to spot since I am almost 6 feet tall.  We may not be able to have many chairs set up, I have heard that they have expanded the dance floor and have perhaps limited the seating capacity.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you!

    The dance was fantastic along with the weather. The meetup people were really rocking it. It was really organized and someone even had chairs for us . Some of us did mentioned it would be nice to have name tags. For those like myself that don't do well on remembering names. worth the trip and I would go again.

    I should have showed up early like suggested. I wanted to get a bike ride in on the way there, and the line to get in is huge.

    Lori, you would look nice with my orange safety cone on your head. No one could possibly miss you!

      Are you well enough to come? Your orange safety cone is nice; however, you can wear your lovely safety cone and I want a picture! ;-)

      I want to see Dana wear the orange safety cone with his LOUD Hawaiian shirt. That would be quite the ensemble!

    I won't be able to get there until about 6:30 or 7:00 so when facing the stage will you be on the right side or left side? What else will identify the group later on?

    August 23

    • Lori S

      We will be on the left side.
