Now Gluten Free!

Kate Hedin DJs!

There are three things you can always expect when you come to the Jam Cellar: good music, sweat and ice pops. You can probably visualize how those work in tandem, but just in case, here's the breakdown. When you give dancers good music, they dance. When they dance, they sweat. When they sweat, they crave something delightfully refreshing. And when they crave something delightfully refreshing – you get the point.

Tradition of the endearing ice pop treat now synonymous with the Jam Cellar experience began untold summers ago. It seemed the anticipation of amplified sweat from a sweltering summer eve without air conditioning was going to outweigh even the best of musical selection. To combat the enemies of dance, Bobby White plopped down an entire case of cherry popsicles on the staircase on said evening. The sweeping move of brilliance stuck and the people demanded its continuation. The packaging has evolved somewhat since that night, but now costs us less dollars and you only 25(ish) calories – you're welcome.

Although the cooler temperatures are beginning to make their debut in the District, we still plan on having good music and therefore expect you dancers to dance and sweat. We'll have the ice pops waiting for you in the freezer after our series classes and our free drop-in lesson starting at 8 p.m. See you then!
