Dance Freaks and Start-up Geeks!!
The latest dance craze in Europe is debuting in Portland and it’s a perfect match.
Not your typical dance party, Lunch Beat is held mid-week during the lunch hour, and aims to provide an escape from your day job.
Food is included with a ticket, no alcohol is served and attendees must follow a few simple rules from the Manifesto, namely that you dance, dance…and dance.
Lunch Beat was founded in June 2010, in Stockholm, Sweden and 14 people attended. The event now draws a capacity crowd over 500 and serves as the lead example for other cities hosting Lunch Beat parties.
Yet to be fully embraced in North America, some critics credit the free spirit of Europeans to foster such an environment. Either way, we should “Keep Portland Weird” and get our dance on.
Come break it down on the dance floor and have some bento with us!!
