A T-Dance gets its name from Victorian times when people would meet in the early-afternoon to dance and drink tea. In gay lore, it’s said that men would secretly meet on Sunday afternoons when almost everyone was in the closet. They would tell people that they were going for tea – which soon turned into the ever-popular afternoon club parties we now know as “T-Dances.”
Extremely popular in New York, a T-Dance is a great way to boogie all afternoon in your favourite nightclub and and still have enough time for a decent sleep and manage to get up for work feeling almost as fresh as any other weekday morning.
Any regular is known as a T-Bagger, which of course many will know as something completely different. I think the pun is definitely intended.
This DJ mix-set is designed to capture the most defining T-Dance tracks. From sensational drop-outs to full-on pumping bass-lines that bring a sense of euphoria and uplift the dance floor.
Not to be confused with the American political movement, The Tea Party. According to the three W’s, they get a bit pissed off about it…
