Sometimes the only thing that a stressed out week calls for is dance party, reservation for one. Being alone with my thoughts, my laptop and various commentaries on the book of Acts in preparation to preach to 250+ college students next week called for a little release in the form of sweatin’ to the oldies today.
What music do you listen to when you need to get hype? When You need to do a little punch dancing Hot Rod style? When you feel overwhelmed & just gotta DANCE!?
This playlist, which happens to be my running playlist (for when I actually run) also lends itself well to solo dancing includes:
Do it Now- Mos Def
What You Waiting For? – Gwen Stefani
Stronger- Kanye West
Queen Bitch- David Bowie
Kick out the Jams- Presidents of The United States of America
My sister in law has told me about the phenomenon of Dance Dance Party Party– happening in her very own church basement where the motto of DDPP happens for spangled and stressed 30-somethings in Indianapolis; It’s simple: No Boys. No Booze. No Judgment. (Legwarmers Optional)
“Dance Dance Party Party is a women-only freestyle dance session happening all over this great Earth. But what does that mean? Women from all ages enter a dark room with a bunch of strangers, dance their asses off to an eclectic mix of dance songs, and leave as friends, refreshed. It’s like reliving that late-night dance party from a sleep-over party you had when you were 10. It also just so happens to be incredible exercise that you don’t even realize you’re doing.”
I would love to get one of these going in the Cleve. For now, I’ll just dance it out in my own basement when I’m stressed.
