Dance Announcement: DJ Arcade




Kicking off Saturday night’s dance is our brand new event, DJ ARCADE! Each of these three DJs will get 30 minutes to incorporate a popular video game theme into their entire set. The game theme will be assigned a month prior to the event so that they have time to create an awesome set!

Make sure to dance your way over to the Saturday Night DJ section to learn all about these wonderful DJs, preview their music, and even get a sneak peak at who else is joining them on Saturday evening!
