Dance Walk! down South Congress!

Please dress comfortably in workout clothing/shoes.  Do not forget to bring water and, sunglasses are a great idea, not only for your eyes, but if you're shy or it's your first time and you're still feeling it out...they double as camo (especially if paired with a hat or bandana!)

We have a (loud) portable speaker in a backpack and a wireless mic.  I make the playlists and have a discussion board open for song requests.

We wait for a few for the late-comers then walk for approximately an hour.  It is fun, sweaty business and we CANNOT wait to see you there!!!

    Are we going to need a permit for a group this large? Just wondering.

    April 16, 2013

    • Sarah Kinney W.

      That is a good question. I will have to look into it. I wonder how many people will actually show...

      1 · April 16, 2013

    • Sarah Kinney W.

      Thanks for the input! I think we will just see how it goes Saturday and if the turnout is super major, then I may have to put a cap on the event size. If that happens we will end up doing it every week.

    If ya love to dance, the music doesn't matter!

    1 · April 16, 2013

  • Sarah Kinney W.

    I will get to as many song requests as possible. I modify the songs' lengths so it takes a little time. Meaning...if yours doesn't make it on this Dance Walk! It will be on the next!

    Some freestyle tunes would be awesome from the 80's. like the cover girls, George hadaway, Stevie b, Taylor Dayne to name a few. Also the good Ol British 80's depeche mode, pet shop boys, English beat etc

    Sarah & Meaghan - have you let Mark Colonmos know what his video inspired?

    April 13, 2013

    • Sarah Kinney W.

      Actually no. I guess we should. I'm hoping to get video of the event and then we could maybe get it to him somehow. Thanks for the idea!

    Can't make this first one, but hope you guys have a great time! I work downtown so after-work dance walk parties on town lake trail would be high on my request list. Along with almost any Prince song!

    1 · April 7, 2013

    • Sarah Kinney W.

      Wonderful Jodi. We can most certainly make that route happen, and the Prince song(s) as well. Hope to see at another Dance Walk! soon.
