HAVE A DANCE PARTY

Who we are

The concept is something of a suburban phenomenon; a mature reinvention of the over-thirties crowd that still takes place in hotels and halls from all over the country. Here in Sussex County, Delaware we have a larger crowd of older citizens who are very active and too young for the senior center. As clubbers get older, the goal posts keep moving, and nights like these are a welcome slice of safe dancing fun not too far from home. To others, as one person pointed out, it sounds as fun as an old time sock hop. Perhaps they'd fancy a night out where the music is just as fresh as in their youth. And for that we have nights like our 50's to 80's dance show. You can dance to any era that attracts you to a dance floor-focused crowd to our eclectic spread of music. We welcome older clubbers but first we are setting out to attract them by making it a welcome venue for everybody. Our focus is definitely on the music and the e xperience, but the nature of that means that we're aimed at a slightly older crowd, b ut it's not an old crowd. Maybe I'd call it "grown up clubbing". It's not about a thousand 21 to 25-year-olds wearing sunglasses in a warehouse listening to Hot Creation records. That's pretty exciting if you're 21 to 25, but we offer musical authenticity in a more intimate setting, allowing for a more personal party.' And one with a guarantee that it won't turn into a smashing rave by the end Still, with the increasing number of older people living in our area and want to go out to a club what choice is there going to be. The fact is that "senior clubbers" go out far more rarely only because there is nowhere to go; the Dance Party will attract a reliable market. If you want to go out more, you need to go out more.' So, you might just be pleasantly surprised by what you find at the Dance Party.We are l ooking to start this remarkable venture right here in Sussex County, please support us and come see a truly inventive activity coming your way soon! Whether you are enjoying the music or dancing the night away you will be sure to have a great time at the "DANCE PARTY"!

What we offer

A bit of history

One of the most popular dances from the 1950s was the Twist. This infamous dance was the inspiration of Chubby Checker’s original 1960s hit song, and it could regularly be seen on American Bandstand. Many of the most popular dances from the 1950s, such as the Jitterbug, the Cha-cha, and the Lindy Hop, were thought of as group dances rather than single couples’ dances. The Lindy Hop, a swing dance that first appeared in New York, is a unique stile of movement that combines elements of both partner and solo dances. The basic step used by Lindy dancers is called the swing out. Each dancer performs alone in the open position then the couple comes together to dance. It wasn't long before Elvis would appear on stage, singing and swinging his hips! The music and dances from the 1950s and 60s started a new style and form of expression for North American youth. Dance from this era has influenced movies like Grease and Hairspray, and music videos like Christina Aguilera's Candyman..

I’m Bruce McKinney aka DJ Cousin Bruce. Not to be confused with my idol Cousin Brucie . They called me Cousin Bruce after Cousin Brucie Morrow” from back in the days of WABC . What a better way to bring back the oldies but play homage to “Cousin Brucie”. A Delaware native I have always enjoyed radio and DJ work. In the 70’s I worked at a small radio station in Tennessee where I attended college and was part of the campus station WPTL in Greeneville Tenn. I found out after retiring I knew way too much useless Trivial information and a big part of it was music ,especially older music. So why not do something with it ...people older than 40 enjoy dancing but where can you go ….so the Dance Party was born..
