SEATTLE – A pop-up dance party that takes time travelers back to the 1960s.

BOOT! features two DJs filming 45 originals, along with live dancers.

“It’s the best music,” said Maxwell Edison, who runs dance parties with Sarah Savannah. It has the most soul, best sound, sophistication and simplicity at the same time.” “

In their early 30s and 40s, respectively, they don’t even live during the decade they celebrate. But Savannah says they are related.

“It was an era where anything was possible. It was an era of optimism,” Savannah said. “I feel like maybe that’s the comfort we’re looking for right now.”

Everything they shoot comes from their personal collections, and many of Savannah’s recordings are in French.

“I’m from France and I feel like in Europe, there’s more culture and there’s a setting for this,” she said. “I was a backpacking girl before I came here. And I went to Seattle and went, ‘Okay, where’s the scene? Where are my people?’ Only to find out that no one does it.”

She and Edison decided to fill the space, and the crowd continued to grow at each event. A recent pop-up inside Ronette’s Psychedelic Sock Hop in Seattle features a dance floor full of people representing all ages and backgrounds.

“The energy flows between the people that are dancing, and we play records, and the girls play Go – that energy flows, everyone is so happy and they’re so engrossed, that’s the best part.” Edison said.

Savannah also believes that the Go dance is a form of expression that can represent feminism and progress.

“Dancing go-go is amazing because it’s so liberating. It’s a dance you don’t have to do with your partner,” she said. “After decades of salon dancing, the ’60s started coming in and suddenly women were rocking their bodies with no choreography, no steps, no anything.”

Their song selections range from popular national anthems to deep cuts and cover genres like rock and roll, soul, latin, garage and psychedelic.

Every dance party is free to attend and upcoming events are announced on BOOTS! Instagram page.

“I personally want them to be inspired to participate in this music,” Edison said, “I want them to feel this is the ultimate experience, we want more!”

“We also wanted to keep this music alive,” added Savannah, “We didn’t want this music to be forgotten.”

BOOT! also curate Spotify playlists for anyone who wants to search remotely.
