What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
There are three official rules — no boys, no booze, no judgement. The original DDPP™ began in NYC in 2006. This is the Vancouver chapter & we welcome all self-identified women! 1. I don’t get it… what do you do? We turn down the lights, we turn up the tunes, a poor-gal’s version of a disco ball starts up and we shake our groove things. It’s that simple! There is no teacher – our “Den Mama” will get you started, and will let you know when it’s the last song. Take breaks when you need them, or dance it out for the whole hour! 2. What should I wear? What should I bring? Wear whatever you want! We suggest comfortable workout clothes because you will SWEAT. Non-scuffing shoes preferred – socks or bare-feet are ok too! Bring WATER! 3. What if I can’t dance? Don’t worry, neither can we! This is about FUN, so try out your funkiest moves, pretend you’re in your own music video, or just sway in the corner… whatever works for you! 4. What music to do you listen to? Each week a Den Mama or a guest DJ prepares a playlist to bring to class. Link to a video about it: https://ddppvancouver.wordpress.com/faq/ HOW MUCH? $7 drop in fee PLEASE NOTE: Regardless of how many women sign up through Meetup, there is a core group of women who show up weekly that have nothing to do with Meetup. I went with another member, and there were 20 women attending. PARKING: You can park underground. From Broadway heading west, turn right onto Kingsway, right onto 7th Ave and then an immediate right into an alley which leads to the underground. Parking is $2 for 30 min. Otherwise, look for parking on the street. And if you can walk there, I am jealous of you!

Step one, buy your $12 ticket (plus nominal service charge) https://riotheatretickets.ca/events/10225-the-fictionals-present-improv-against-humanity-ladies-against-humanity Step two: RSVP and let's try to win prizes....prizes from Womyn's Ware, WooHoo! Step three: if you are unable to commit, express your interest in the general comments section. That way, I can plan where and when to meet with those who are going, and then post those details. Then if you can join, it's a win-win! LOGISTICS: Doors open at 7pm, and from past experience, a line up outside the Rio starts before 7pm. Show starts at 8pm. I am guessing for 2 hours. Maybe some of us can get to the Rio earlier...to stand in line...to get seats...that's why I need to know who is able to commit to coming! Details about the show: Who run the world? Girls! Join The Fictionals and special guests on March 20th at the Rio Theatre for the annual Ladies Against Humanity special! Some of the funniest women from around Vancouver will bring CAH (cards against humanity) to life during our live tournament, give out sweet prizes, and crown the next Most Horrible Person in Vancouver! It could be you, so come on down! Warning: may contain some strong language, sexual content and mature themes. Viewer discretion is advised.
We will walk a forest trail down to the Seymour River. You will see where the land slide happened a few years back and we will go over the newly built suspension bridge that replaced the old one after the slide flooded it.We will walk along the river side and I'll point out some cool things to see like a cave and old remnants of a chimney from olden days. This is a scenic easy walk but does include elevation, so some going down and back up a moderately steep incline to get to the river
