This is what most of Katie's dance moves look like
Shake Your Groove Thing
by Katie Langley
What did you do on Tuesday night? I spent my evening doing three of my favourite things – listening to music, singing and dancing. I should clarify that the singing and dancing was terrible, and in the company of about 100 strangers in a dark hall at No Lights No Lycra. The basic premise is that it is a no poser event where you can come and dance like no one is watching for an hour. And they really aren’t, because you can’t see shit.
I appreciate that this concept is peculiar and terrifying to some, but I’m here to tell you that there is something weirdly liberating about singing Madonna at the top of your lungs while you flail your arms around in the air like Phoebe from Friends.
Here is a brief selection of the songs from the night. Go on, try and tell me they don’t make you want to dance…
"Bohemian Like You" - The Dandy Warhols
"Love Shack" - The B-52's
"Blister In The Sun" - Violent Femmes
"(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party" - The Beastie Boys
"Single Ladies" - Beyonce
So, who is coming with me next week?
