Dance to your own beat at Reston’s Silent Dance Party!

Get ready to dance at Reston Station on Sunday, October 9 at the first-ever Silent Dance Party!

Reston Community Center and Comstock at Reston Station are partnering to create a dance party like you’ve never heard before — in fact, only each individual dancer will be hearing the music.

Here’s how it works: DJs will spin music that you alone can hear through a headset. The community voted via Facebook in August on the genres of music — from Latin to Hip-Hop, to music from the 1960s to today.

The party will feature the top three styles that voters chose. Dancers can change from one style to another — only they will know what’s on their own personal playlist. To dance, please bring a driver’s license to exchange for the headset.

“It’s hard to say what will be more fun — dancing to music you’ve selected or watching people dance to their music without hearing a sound,” said RCC Executive Director Leila Gordon. “Comstock is excited to host this unique event at the Reston Metro Plaza. It’s fun to try something new and exciting in Reston,” noted Tracy Schar, Comstock’s SVP of Marketing.

The party runs from 5-8 p.m. on October 9 at Reston Metro Plaza (atop the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station).

Admission is free. The party will also feature family-friendly activities for all ages, so bring the kids for this special event.
