Halloween Dance Party
The Halloween Dance Party is an annual Charity Akita (formerly AAJ) charity event held in October since 2005. It has been heald at various locations over the years; Club Bloom, Dreamworld, Club AK and Jamhouse in Akita City. This event is a great chance for JETs throughout the prefecture to get together and is also popular with the local Japanese community. We hope to see you there this year!
The 8th annual dance party will have a costume contest. And the first 100 guests will receive either a glow wrist-band, necklace, glasses or magic wand.
Date: Saturday, Oct. 27th, 9pm to 4am
Entry: ¥ 2,500

The Halloween Dance Party is run completely by volunteers. All bar staff, DJs, door staff, and set-up/cleaning personnel volunteer their time to make this party a success.
All volunteers are given a discounted entry price and the eternal gratitude of the coordinators.
Akita JETs and local DJs such as Imu, Wil, Mutsumi, Aanya, Anthony, Mike will provide excellent music at the Halloween Dance Party.
