Electronic Dance Music is trending right now and I am so happy it is.
My love for this music started very recently. One of my dearest friends, Kelly Proctor, got me tickets to EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) for my birthday last year. To be honest the first thing I asked was, “What is EDC?” It’s true, I had no idea, I may have been living in the dark ages for awhile but I’m elated to be out of that!
I remember walking through the tunnel to get into the Las Vegas Speedway where the event was held and all you could feel was an extreme amount of energy. Being a highly energetic woman I knew I was in the perfect place in that moment. Kelly and I danced for 8 hours straight. I don’t mean bouncing a bit and step touching, I mean leaps, kicks, ribcage isolations (think disco era) and maybe even a Harlem shake or two or three. We had the very best time and I had the very best birthday that one of my dearest friends gifted to me.
My vision and my love for this music grows deeper than just dancing to it, it embodies what the original Benner Fit class is based around and I am forever thankful to my wonderful friend for sharing this with me.
It’s Kelly’s birthday this week and I thought this would be the perfect time to share what she has created for the EDM community. She created a website called Music Not Molly which is basically saying-no lectures, no judgements, just Music Not Molly. Kelly goes to the EDM events for the love of the music. She is not there to escape reality or try a new substance in a highly stimulating environment. She is there for the DJ’s, for the beats, and for the community. Kelly makes it clear that she does not judge what other people in this community choose to do, she is just sharing her vision with others and hopes to make a difference in this beautiful community.
She has some pretty awesome gear that I proudly wear myself! Keep spreading the MNM word! I know I’ll be rocking my goods.
Happy Birthday Kelly! We love you here at Benner Fit.
