DJ Schedule

Hey everyone -- we have exciting news! Freestyle Friday is going weekly!
Our primary location will the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists. BFUU's Fellowship Hall is a big, beautiful studio that has held many dance events.
The third Friday of the month, we will be at Finn Hall because BFUU is not available and Finn Hall is. 
Join us Friday, October 27, for another night of Freestyle Friday!  We will be at BFUU, at 1924 Cedar Street, corner of Bonita, in the big hall.
And it's a Halloween party! Wear a costume if you'd like. We will also have extra costumes available for those who are "costume challenged." 
The hours of the dance will be 7:30 (or so) until 10pm. The first half hour will be slower music for relaxing, stretching, "arriving" and warming up. You may arrive whenever you wish. 
This week's DJ will be Christina, who will be playing a yummy mix of music with some spookiness for Halloween. 

Entry is $20, but NOTAFLOF. Pay at the door or pre-pay:
Venmo: @Christina-tuccillo

We hope to see you dancing Friday night!
If you like Facebook, you can join the new Facebook Group, "Freestyle Friday", and/or the Barefoot Boogie group. The Friday dance is called Freestyle Friday, but we're posting information here since FF doesn't have a website.
The info below is for Zoom dances, which are happening only occasionally now:
If you'd like to donate for our (almost) weekly dances, here's how:
Paypal or Zelle to or
Venmo @Christina-Tuccillo

Props we often use include:  fun hats, light-weight scarves, stuffed animals, and a light you can hold or wear
Zoom dances are more fun when more folks have their cameras on, so please do! This is a community event, and we all need to contribute in some way to keeping up the vibe.

Message me ahead of time if you'd like to attend but I might not recognize your name. Otherwise I might not let you into the Zoom room (in order to avoid Zoom bombing). Thank you!
Each week I will post the Zoom link here and in our Facebook group about 15 minutes before the start of the dance.
Our usual format:
7:30 - Arrival -- you will start in a virtual "waiting room" and be allowed in, which is a Zoom feature to prevent Zoom bombing. (You may arrive at any time -- I'll let you in whenever you arrive.)
7:30 - 7:45 -- Warm-up dancing, with music increasing slightly in tempo and energy -- cameras off for fewer distractions, so we can really unwind
7:45 - 8:45 -- Uptempo music
8:45 - 9 -- Cool-down, slow music
9 - 9:15 -- Closing “circle” and chat for those who wish
If you'd like to donate, here's how:

Our time zone is Pacific Daylight Time, UTC-7.
To join in, you need to have the (free) Zoom application on your device, but you do not need to sign up for a Zoom account or need to login to Zoom. If you don’t have Zoom installed on your device, and you try clicking the meeting link, it will  prompt you to download or install Zoom right then. So ahead of time, it’s best to install it before the dance: .
(On computers, the application is called “Zoom Client for Meetings.” If you search for ZOOM in the app store, it will be called “ZOOM Cloud Meetings, Meet Happy.”)
