Silent Disco has been described as “a crazy sight to behold, even crazier to partake in” and I definitely agree! I had heard of them, but only had a vague idea of how it actually worked. I knew that people listened to music through headphones, and danced around – but wasn’t certain how the logistics worked with who attended as well as the songs played. This past weekend, however, my journey with Silent Discos began..
My friend had mentioned how much she loved them and what an avid participator she was last Summer, so I was tempted by the event on at the local park on Memorial Day. Nathan was very enthusiastic about joining as well because he danced with a group at a local fair and knew the fun that was to come. After a long walk around our neighborhood due to the gorgeous weather, we made a healthy pasta salad and made our way towards the park. Right when we arrived, there was a pretty big crowd of people dancing with headphones that glowed either blue or green – I was instantly in awe to get started on my dancing adventure! We paid the surprisingly cheap price of $5 each to rent our headphones and then picked which station we wanted to hear.
