Check your attitude at the door for the weekly Dance Dance Party Party in Tremont. That's because the 75-minute exercise workout, which happens in a spacious yoga-and-pilates studio, posts three rules: No boys, no booze, and no behind-the-back gossiping. Since the classes began a month ago, gals have been showing up to dance to mixes of tunes from '80s and '90s pop acts like Rick Springfield, Duran Duran, and Billy Idol. You're encouraged to wear leg-warmers and leotards, since the bumping and grinding can turn Flashdance-like, with high kicks and deep knee bends. "Everyone complains about being sore, and it's a real workout," says organizer Stephanie Boyer. "It's important that there's no judgment here, because there's some really bad dancing going on. But in the best way." Class starts at 7:15 tonight at Studio 11, 2337 West 11th Street. Fee is $5. Visit www.ddppcleveland.wordpress.com.
