A Halloween dance party dubbed “Euphoria 500” will be held 6 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Oct. 31 at the Helena Civic Center, bringing a new kind of venue to town that may come across as untraditional.
The event’s organizer, Ross Kirkland, described the dance as offering “immersive art,” in which people are encouraged to interact with the dancers and move and dance with performers.
“The veil falls,” he said. “You are on the stage and in the orchestra pit. You move and dance with the performers.”
Kirkland said the trained go-go dancers performing that night are skilled in encouraging people. He admits it is hard to describe.
“I’d had to be reduced to using ‘dance party,’ because that is what people understand,” he said.
The event, for those 21 and over, encourages participants to dance and feel the music through a new sound system, see state-of-the-art lighting effects and video.
