I can’t event tell you how many full choreographed dances I have done in the privacy of my home throughout my life. There’s just something about jamming out with the music on full blast in your headphones. Maybe you’ll break out some of your awesome moves at Lincoln Center Local’s upcoming Silent Disco in Woodlawn Cemetery. Now, if your first thought was ‘Um, literally dancing on people’s graves, though?’ don’t fret. Woodlawn Cemetery has lots of beautiful green space that’s not over anyone’s dead body. I promise.
For those who are unfamiliar, a silent disco is a dance party, but instead of music blaring out of stereos, it’s blaring out of individual headphones and partygoers have the option to listen to different stations. So everyone is literally dancing to the beat of a different drummer.
Here are the details:
Where: Woodlawn Cemetery (Fairview Lawn) Jerome Avenue Entrance, Jerome Avenue and Bainbridge Avenue
Closest subway: 4 at Woodlawn
When: Sunday, August 30, 2015; Doors open at 4 pm
Other Things to Note: No bags are allowed on the dance floor, so leave them at home.
No alcohol is allowed, so keep your flasks and to go bottles at home.
While headphones are free to borrow, you need an ID or credit card to borrow them.
