Whiteout: Evolution Of A Dancer III, the third installment of the dance party that explores the history of gay nightclubbing. Evolution takes place next Sunday, February 17th at Manhattan's Rebel Club. Performing that night are legendary DJs Michael Fierman, and John Celgia. Making his NYC debut that night will be DJ Jimmy DePre.
While dance culture has branched off into many variants and has become a global phenomenon, our concept is to tell our story, chronologically, through the music that is relevant to the people who danced in the clubs from The Loft and the 10th Floor through 12 West, Flamingo, The Garage, The Sandpiper, The Pavilion, Ice Palace, Cherry Grove, Infinity, Studio 54, The Underground, The Saint, Palladium, into The Sound Factory, Twilo, Roxy, Octagon, Discotheque, Element, Love and of course Roseland. A ride in a time machine and a musical journey like no other club experience has ever been presented. We have witnessed a whirlwind of technological advancement both in music production and DJ tools for the presentation of music in the club, as well as the development of the musical styles that move us today.Evolution Of A Dancer begins at 6pm and continues until 3am.
