$5 or less: Rock With You Dance Party

After the recent glut of Michael Jackson tribute concerts, you may have felt all moonwalked out. But this chance to join in the "Thriller" dance has an added incentive: It benefits a local charity. Project Create, an organization that exposes at-risk D.C. kids to the arts, will transform the library room of Dupont's Darlington House back into its former incarnation as party central, complete with a disco ball. DJ Random will be spinning the hits, so expect a lot of "Smooth Criminal" and "Beat It," plus music from those inspired by the King of Pop, including Beyoncé, Ne-Yo and Usher. The cover charge is $5 (though you can obviously give more) and it all goes to Project Create. Drink deals include $4 Miller Lite, $5 Coronas, $6-$7 wines and an $8 pomegranate punch. So what are you waiting for? Get on the floor.

7 p.m. Saturday. Darlington House, 1610 20th St. NW. 202-835-8383. http://www.projectcreatedc.org. $5 suggested donation.
