Got an MP3 player and earbuds? Like to dance? Know how to get to Alameda Park? You're in luck. Just Dance Free has got just the thing for you.
I'd heard snippets about this group, but didn't actually see much published info about it until just this week. Just Dance Free is an inviting gang of people who gather at the Park with a preset playlist on individual mp3 who dance together, immersed in the music, but silently to the rest of the world. I think this is really darn cool.
"We are a group of enthusiastic, energetic freedancers who gather up once each week to jump around and get down under the blue sky. Bring your friends, parents, kids, neighbors - anyone and everyone is welcome to join!!!
Here's how it works:
1. Download our newest dancetrack from the Just Dance Free blog onto your iPod, mp3 player, iPhone, music gadget.
2. Meet us at the park with your iPod and headphones.
3. We get together, press play at the same time, and wild free dancing begins!"
Here's their Facebook page.
And here's their blog page, including the mp3 playlists hosted on mediafire: http://www.justdancefree.blogspot.com/
I've checked out the latest playlist and it was good for pottering around the house, doing chores and generally being productive and bouncy. It includes well-known mainstream hits, remixes, pop, and good indie stuff as well. It looks like they want other DJs and music enthsiasts to contribute mixes, and they definitely want lots of people to join in the dancing at the park. I'm totally down with going!...er, but maybe not this week. Too wet!
