Northern Virginia Pride (NOVA Pride) is proud to team up with RedRocks Pizzeria in Arlington (2501 Columbia Pike, Penrose Square, Arlington, VA 22204) for “Pride on the Rocks”, featuring “Pride CockTails” and locally-brewed beer specials on the first Thursday of every month, beginning September 4, 2014.

Northern Virginia Pride (NOVA Pride)

RedRocks will welcome LGBTQ and allies to their Arlington location with no cover, drink specials from 7pm-1:30am, and a classic and upscale atmosphere, featuring music from the Jazz/Ragtime/Blues era (Frank, Billie, Ella). Kristen Wilson, RedRocks General Manager states “RedRocks has tons of LGBTQ clientele, and we are excited to give them something new and fun to do in Northern Virginia!” RedRocks is contributing a percentage of sales during the evening to NOVA Pride.

NOVA Pride shares RedRocks’ excitement, and are kicking off the first “Pride on the Rocks” event by featuring couples’ dance instruction by Ashliana Rowe (NOVA Pride’s Entertainment Director, and longtime professional dancer and instructor), with styles ranging from Ballroom Dancing, to Salsa, to the Two-Step! Not only couples should attend; all are encouraged to grab a partner at RedRocks! In the latter portion of the evening, the class will open up to learning line dances such as the Cha Cha Slide, the Electric Slide, the Cupid Shuffle, the Wobble, and more! Ashliana says, “By the time you are done you will have mastered the basics, have had some locally-brewed beer, and be the life of the dance floor!” Ashliana has been dancing since 1986, professionally since 1995, and teaching professionally since 2000.
