When: Saturday, June 17 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Where: West End Nightclub, 1301 5th Street Santa Monica
Here's an idea - take Dad dancing! KDS' team transforms hip Los Angeles nightclubs and private exclusive venues into a family-friendly daytime event. Best part? No babysitters required! Have fun dancing with the kids while listening to electronic dance music, current club music and mixes provided by known and respected DJs. Note that little ears are safe as sound levels are monitored to make sure that even the littlest of the dancers can handle the music level. There are glowsticks, flashy glasses, face paints, dance lessons and even bubble and confetti cannons!
