Party Like It’s 1989

There are so many reasons why Saturday’s Cause for a Dance Party sounds like the weekend’s best bet. Reason one: an exclusive playlist of 80’s and 90’s music. Reason two: permission to wear leg warmers and other era-inspired garb. Reasons three through infinity: A lesson from dance instructor John Chu, who will be teaching the choreography from Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” video. Does that not sound like the most epic evening ever?

Saturday’s event will benefit The Reading Connection, which promotes literacy among at-risk children and their families. Doors open at 8 p.m., but don’t be too fashionably late – the dance lesson starts at 9 p.m.  The party will be held at the Darlington House and a $5 minimum donation is required.
