Feeling isolated? Missing your friends? Feel the need to dance it out?

Join our weekly “Dance Community Happy Hour” series, where you can kick back and connect with your peers through dance and good music! A mix between an open practice session and a party, this virtual space will welcome new hip-hop dance artists each week as “party hosts” to create a lively, comfortable, and fun atmosphere. Music will be mixed by a live DJ to keep the party going. No dance experience necessary. Come join our community!

The Dance Community Happy Hour on September 20 is hosted by Darien “Daah” Van Rensalier.

darien in orange striped shirt sunglasses sneakers leans against street pole My name is Darien Van Rensalier but most of my dance peers know me as ‘Daah’. I’ve been dancing since 2012 where I joined Project D Dance Company. Since then, I’ve performed on different stages, different sets, with different and amazing dancers/choreographers. I am the founder of Silkseries, a network designed to maintain community and culture within our dance world. I strive for liberation and energy! Whatever opportunity is presented to me, I want to always make sure all dancers feel comfortable and uplifted!
