Movie Moves with DJ Fun Factory!


Welcome to the debut of our newest DJ! Not only did she make a themed mix, she even let us know what movies they were from with the list below. Thanks for trekking out all the way from Vancouver Island to dance with us DJ Fun Factory!

Oh, definitely time for a rewatch of Slumdog Millionaire!

P.S. extra special thank you to DJ NoHooves for the necessary “wildlife” removal from the dance studio this week. EEEEEK! 


International Women’s Day Mix!

DJ Darfunkel #40 Mar6:18 girl power

We celebrated Women’s Day with a female-centered playlist! Unfortunately our DJ was sick, so I whipped this up on my phone a few hours before class. Lessons learned:

1 – having a master playlist of dance tunes is indispensable!

2 – my iPhone is convenient, but those dead-air transitions are buzz-kils, so I’ll be back to lugging my laptop. If you’re device allows cross-fading, I recommend it DDPP DJ’S!

3 – dancing ALWAYS helps. My brain takes a mini-vacation while my ass is shakin’ !

There were MANY more songs that almost ended up on this list, but I chose some I feel like we don’t hear often. So alas, my go-to girl-power Christina Aguilera, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson and Lady Gaga anthems didn’t make the cut, but I just HAD to have Madonna, Queen Bey & the Spice Girls (duh)… and of course :


 ♀ Happy International Women’s Day! ✊

P.S. I meant to post this on actual International Women’s Day, but I was busy on a day off of my full-time job with child-care, elder-care, domestic chores & spending time with my partner. This isn’t a complaint. Life can be exhaustingly busy, but those people make me whole, and my work keeps me motivated (mostly)… and being able to dance like no one is watching with a group of like-minded ladies keeps me sane. So I may keep struggling to get these posts done in a timely fashion, or I may just start ditching the commentary and tossing up the set-list screenshots solo, but either way, know that if you’re reading this you are probably a woman in my life who has been a source of camaraderie and fun, and I thank you for it.
