Dance-a-Awesome

Dance-a-Raoke at 92YTribeca

“The looming question is,” Dance Studio Life wondered in their latest issue, “Can karaoke do the same thing for dance that it’s done for bar attendance, liquor consumption, and just plain fun?” As they found out upon visiting Dance-a-Raoke at 92YTribeca (also known as dance-a-awesome), the answer is yes. An excerpt from their article (not online):

The dance improvisation of the Y’s Dance-a-Raoke requires both skilled movers and willing audience members, some of whom lack any dance training. The monthly event, which costs $12, features a rotating group of professional dancers who respond to zany and often randy commands from a roulette “Wheel of Miss Fortune.” Audience members might be asked to do everything from performing duets with the pros to gyrating with each other, swinging feather boas.

Though we can’t really take credit for discovering a pot of fun at the end of a costumed, dancing, alcohol imbibing rainbow, we will if you insist.

Catch the next Dance-a-Raoke night on May 12 with premier salsa dancer and party host Jose Rosario and super swinger Jessi “Dance Magic” Patz and friends as they duke it out on the brawl-room dance floor.
