NYC Chapter of the 3rd Annual Global Floating Dance Party
Jul 12, 2014 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm| Free
The floating dance party is a party where a group of people listen to the
same music at the same time, via individual devices headphones. To the
outside observer, it just looks like a silent mass of dancing people moving
through the city–you may know of this as a “silent disco,” only difference
is that this version covers more territory, geographically speaking. The
reason the Global Float is awesome is that it involves separate floating
dance parties happening in cities across the world (29 in 2012! 20 in
2013!), moving across the globe on one night, time zone by time zone.
Everyone that participates is dancing to the same music as people thousands
of miles away, mixed by DJs from all over the world.
