Birthday Surprise!

Sunday brought record numbers to DDPP NY!  22 fabulous, beautiful, amazing ladies showed up to dance and the party refused to stop!  One of our dancers decided to have her birthday party start off at DDPP (I mean… awesome idea!) and those girls knew how to party!  Best part of the day was multiple circles of ladies moving around the room a la “Around The World” Daft Punk style.  Unbelievable how up for it everyone was and how not one person stood back with a bad attitude.  And all my ladies even got with the idea to sing happy birthday between songs! 

I guess there’s some part of all of this that is fake or forced since we’re not REALLY all best friends and outside of that room I’m sure we have different beliefs, opinions, habits, rituals, sexual preferences, etc etc etc… but I’ve always been a strong believer in the saying “fake it til you make it” and I think DDPP is a prime example for that.  Come into it believing you are awesome (you are!) and that everyone loves you (they do!) and your experience will be that much richer.

But I digress…

DJ Hot Violet (Simone Kornfield) almost gave us heart attacks with her awesome mix!  Even the curtains in our substitute (and heated??) room, who sat there trying to soak up the sound and foil our fun, weren’t successful.  Heat be damned – we danced our fannies off!  I hope every Sunday from now until I’m 90 (when we’ll probably eventually be forced to stop dancing) is jam-packed with that many awesome ladies ready for whatever our little party brings.
