3 Dots To Host Monthly Dance Party Series Starting September 8

3 Dots is partnering with Gorinto Productions to host monthly dance parties to promote community engagement, positivity, and inclusivity. Each dance party is open to all ages and is alcohol-free.

The first dance party of the series will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 8. Tickets are $12 at the door and are reduced to $8 with a student ID.

“On these nights, 3 Dots will feel like a club, but one that’s centered around people feeling comfortable while they enjoy the music and share the dance floor with family, friends, and colleagues,” Corey Elbin, the director of Gorinto Productions, said.

This month’s event will feature DJ Walter Wadsworth and DJ Elbow Knee Knee, as well as SoBar, an alcohol-free mobile bar started in 2020 by the owners of Webster’s Cafe. SoBar will offer Keystone Cultures Kombucha and craft mocktails.

For future dance parties, Gorinto Productions will bring DJs from the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas.

“Gorinto Productions has curated this event with the presence of an inclusive and healthy nightlife offering in a town where intergenerational experiences that don’t revolve around alcohol seek homes. 3 Dots is honored to be one such space,” Erica Quinn, 3 Dots’ executive director, said.
