DANCE ON! A Virtual Community Dance Party

February 20 2021, 8-9pm Eastern | Hosted on Zoom

Part of Pittsfield’s 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival
In support of Berkshire Immigrant Center and Volunteers in Medicine

Hosted by Christal Brown, Founding Artistic Director of INSPIRIT, and New York-based DJ DP One and featuring surprise special guests, Dance On! invites everyone to join in a celebratory moment of movement (with a live DJ set) via Zoom. This virtual dance party offers a chance to celebrate and enjoy music and dancing together, from home. Party-goers can use the chat function in Zoom to talk directly with other attendees. Anyone can volunteer to be featured on screen—or simply watch the party happen. If you would like to be seen on the digital dance floor, create a Zoom account in advance of the event, and use the “raise hand” button if you want to be spotlighted. 

This event is a part of Discover Pittsfield’s 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival. The Festival is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with virtual art shows and performances, encore presentations of past events, outdoor adventures, and live ice carving in Downtown Pittsfield.
