*About the Boogie
Are you psyched to dance? So are we. Come join us! The Boogie is a freestyle dance which happens once a month in New York City. We offer a relaxed, smoke- and alcohol-free environment where folks can freely express themselves in movement.

If you've enjoyed any kind of conscious dance, ecstatic dance, 5 Rhythms, JourneyDance, contact improvisation, or any other kind of freeform movement, you'll enjoy the Boogie.

People of all ages, families and kids are welcome. (Children must be supervised at all times.) Come alone or bring your friends. You'll find folks at the dance moving solo, with partners, and/or in groups. Dress as you wish, but please leave your street shoes at the door (clean soft-soled shoes are acceptable) before hitting the dance floor. We also keep chat to a minimum on the dance floor but welcome verbal connection in the non-dance spaces! The Barefoot Boogie is a not-for-profit, cooperative and volunteer-run venture.

From our pool of talented DJs, two spin each dance. Each of our DJs has his or her own distinctive style, but one thing you can rely on is that at every Boogie you'll hear a wide variety of music: R&B, tribal, funk, lyrical and acoustic, ambient, electronica, disco, rock, and much more.

* When and Where
Barefoot Boogie is held at: Camp Friendship: 339 8th Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Join our mailing list by clicking here and we'll keep you informed about our upcoming dances and DJ Schedules.

We are planning to hold the dance at least once every month so stay tuned! From 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm, we start off with warm-up music. On some months, we have a dance-related class from 7:30-8:30 p.m., followed by DJed music.

The Barefoot Boogie prides itself on being an affordable non-profit dance. Also, proceeds from enty go to the Camp Friendship Food Pantry. Admission is a sliding scale from $10 to $20, depending on what you feel you can afford. If this cost is too much for you, please consider volunteering! Door shift volunteers will still receive 1/2 off for one door shift and a free dance for 2 door shifts;

DJs and Coordinators will always dance free! Kids, 12 and under, are free.

*Join Us

Come join us at the Boogie in dance, hanging out and whatnot. If you groove on what we're doing and have time and energy to help us make the dance happen, all the better. Folks who contribute as such to our dances can get reduced or even free admission to the Boogie. We're entirely volunteer-run so are always in need of people who can work as dance coordinators and DJs, and do 1/2 hour door shifts. Come to our dances and we'll be glad to fill you in on how we're set up. Even if you're not able to get involved, we'd like to hear your ideas about the dance.
