Freestyle Frolic Dancers with Logo


What is a Frolic?

The Frolic is an all-ages dance party for dance lovers. A not-for-profit all-volunteer dance event in the Mid-Hudson Valley.  Frolic dances are alcohol free, smoke free, and drug free which keeps the focus on dancing. People of all kinds attend, ranging from people who are serious about dance and want to expand their experience and learn from other dancers, to people who just want to get down in a fun, open atmosphere.  No dance skills or partners are required! Just bring your dancing feet, socks or indoor-only soft-soled shoes*, and be prepared to boogie down.

Upcoming Events

We hold most Frolic dance events on the Fourth Saturday of the month, usually at The Muse in Rosendale. If you’d like to keep updated with the Frolic, please join our mailing list. Better yet, please consider getting involved in setting up and running Frolics, or participating in organizational meetings through our volunteer form.

The Music Played

The Frolic has some amazing DJs who specialize in ever-changing tapestries of music designed to thrill the diverse tastes of all present.  We feature many different genres of music: R&B, Dubstep, Funk, House, Tribal, World, Soul, Hip Hop, Ambient, Latin, Reggae, African, Downtempo Trance, Electronica, Disco, Rock, and Pop favorites; this breadth of styles is a rare treat! Our DJs are constantly seeking hot new grooves and unearthing historical treasures and remixes. If you love dance and all kinds of music, this is the place for you!

Other Northeast Dances

The Frolic is a member dance of Dance New England, a community of similar dances that stage dance workshop and camping events throughout the year. If there isn’t a Frolic happening this weekend, and you’re itchin’ to move, check to see if there’s a dance happening Williamsburg MA’s Dance Spirit, Boston’s Dance Friday, or other DNE sister dances of the Freestyle Frolic. Visit DNE’s Directory of Dances for many offerings throughout the US and abroad.
