If you're spending Halloween 2017 in Memphis, you're going to want to spend it with us! Prepare your bodies and your souls for a most hallowed evening of performances. Kick off your Halloween Saturday night properly, with a powerful ceremony of dance and movement. Tricks, treats, and costumes encouraged.

The dance floor at Rumba Room (Downtown Memphis, near Beale St.) is opening up yet again for pole dancing, acrobatics, modern dance, jazz dance, belly dance and all kinds of extraordinary feats. Let our performers dazzle you with a mix of entertainment to be found nowhere else in Memphis. From 6-7:30pm, we'll be hosting a community jam session open to all. Learn pole and acro, share, show your stuff, or just watch amazing local talent. Then kick back and watch the professional showcase from 7:30-9pm. As always, tickets $7 in advance, $13 at the door.
