Lunch Beat

Presented by UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art at GOCA 121

The Deal: We provide water, a 1-hour DJ set and a takeaway healthy lunch. You show up and dance. We guarantee you'll leave feeling happier, smarter, and like you just had your best lunch ever. GOCA first brought Colorado Springs community Lunch Beat in 2012 and we are delighted to bring it back in person this August! Come dance Colorado Springs!

Lunch Beat was founded by Molly Ränge in June 2010, and the first event was arranged in the Fabel garage under Hötorget in the city of Stockholm, Sweden. 14 people attended the event. Now it's an international phenomenon, with a basic concept. The rules are simple:

Lunch Beat Manifesto:

1st rule: If it's your first lunch at Lunch Beat, you have to dance.
2nd rule: If it's your second, third or fourth time lunch at Lunch Beat, you have to dance.
3rd rule: If you are getting too tired to actually dance at Lunch Beat, please have your lunch at some other place.
4th rule: You don't talk about your job at Lunch Beat.
5th rule: At Lunch Beat everyone present is your dance partner.
6th rule: Any Lunch Beat are to be no longer than 60 minutes long and set during "lunchtime".
7th rule: Lunch Beat always serve their guest with a 1 DJ-set and 1 take away meal.
8th rule: Water is always served during a Lunch Beat for free.
9th rule: Lunch Beat is a preferably drug-free environment.
10th rule: Lunch Beat can be set up anywhere by anyone as long as they are announced as public events, are nonprofit arrangements and are directed by this manifesto.
