Girls Only Dance Party

Already missing your best girlfriends with the end of the semester coming up? Attend a girls only dance party at Perceptual Motion Dance Studio. “This sixty-minute, free-form, open event has just three rules: no boys, no booze and no judgment. Show up in your headband, leg warmers or other fabulous workout gear and let loose in a dimly lit room pulsating with everything from Broadway to hip-hop to ’80s hits.” Hop on the blue line a few stops to 4057 N. Damen Ave. It’s sure to be a great time!
