I've been working in the nightlife & hospitality industry for 5+ years hosting EDM events throughout SoCal & beyond. My meetups are intended to connect people who love music, dancing & positive energy! A long work week deserves a some fun on the weekends & dancing is a great way to relieve stress. I've met some great friends who still regularly attend our meetups from 7+ years ago so you're never alone with our events. I'm always here to answer any question you might have so please feel free to reach out to me. I hope to see everyone there! =) - Terry
