We have always been a trusting of those who come to our events to be a responsible part of the family and this applies here as well. If you are NOT vaccinated for COVID we do ask that you respect others space while at the event and wear a mask while around others.

The Whole Story
To commemorate the first In person Dance From Above in over a year we are going big. We’re bringing in some serious talent , another underground legend, producer and DJ, Grant.
Grant started releasing music anonymously with a string of vinyl only releases as he honed his craft over the years and when you start to put together the pieces of his influence and projects he has been part of it’s hard not to get excited to have him out. If you have been to a Dance From Above event in the past, chances are one of his records found its way to a deck. He has released on Lobster Theremin, Scissor and Thread, and The Lauren Bacall, his own label run in partnership with frequent collaborator, Francis Harris.
He has a genuine and understated approach to his music that gives his releases a distinct and timeless quality that we love. His choice to release anonymously was in an effort to take the pressure of identity out of the picture entirely and allow him to find his honest voice as a producer. He now focuses all of his energy under the moniker Grant, named after classic film actor Cary Grant. For a taste of his sound check out any of his full length albums; The Acrobat, Cranks, Perception, and Fantasy Blues.
Now onto the event, coming back into the flow of life we got together and thought about what our next move would be. After years of paving the way through the area by bringing art and dance together at venues around Greensboro we thought it was time to take a chance and use a spot we could call our own. We’re calling it The Track Yard. It’s an outdoor space on the edge of town with plenty of room to spread out. We have a nice size dance floor, a bit of grass, some fun ideas for visual projection art, and a pro sound system that will elevate the dance floor and lift your feet for you.
One last note. This series is nothing without you and your support through the years has meant the world to us. Every new space, every sticker printed, every artist we took a chance on bringing to town, it’s all been for you and to prove that this humble city of ours can punch well above its weight.
We’re grateful that you help us spread the word about our events and help them be as fun as they are. This ones for the future, we can’t wait to see you all on the dance floor again soon.
