The Dance Cartel

Driven by pumping bass, glitter and dance theory in near-equal parts, this 90-minute, energy-busting experience is unlike any other show in the world. Part dance, part video installation, part DJ set and part concert, OnTheFloor is much more than a ‘performance.’ The Huffington Post aptly dubs it “a crazy, communal, underground, energetic, messy, drunken, carnivalesque, silly, social, artistic, glittery, participatory, emotional, vibrant, bass pumping, choreographic EVENT.” 

Over the past two years, The Dance Cartel has fine-tuned their all-inclusive ‘shake-it-like-you’ve-got-it’ philosophy and high-octane choreography in monthly shows at Manhattan’s Ace Hotel. As the audiences have grown, they’ve appeared on Conan and in videos with Yoko Ono and Reggie Watts. For their Portland debut, they’ll be collaborating with one of Portland’s finest, DJ Che Ros.
