The Comprehensive Guide To Why Dance Music Needs Harm Reduction

Dance Safe

Dance Safe is an organization whose main goal is to provide accurate information to concertgoers while providing cheap and effective means of testing the user’s drugs. They sell their regent test kits online for a very good price compared to most.

Dance Safes mission is very clear and simple.

DanceSafe has two fundamental operating principles: harm reduction and popular education. Combining these two principles has enabled us to create successful, peer-based educational programs to reduce drug misuse and empower young people to make healthy, informed lifestyle choices. We neither condone nor condemn recreational drug use. Rather, we provide a non-judgmental perspective to help support people who use drugs in making informed decisions about their health and safety.

Having an organization that does not judge you for your actions is definitely key in maintaining a healthy and safe environment in our culture. You can follow Dance Safe on Twitter and like them on Facebook to always be informed of the ever changing landscape of the drug market and to be informed of what risks there are in the community.

Dance Safe used to operate pretty freely to provide on site testing facilities for concertgoers, but since the crippling legislation of the RAVE (Reducing Americas Vulnerability to Ecstasy) act, it is increasingly difficult for them to provide this essential service. Even USC Events is riding a very fine line legally with the Conscious Crew, because of the sheer fact that almost admitting that drugs will be present at their shows could by some interpretations be considered a criminal act. There needs to be new language in this legislation and there is a push to get the RAVE Act amended. You can learn more about that on the next page.

Phillip was raised on so many different genres of music, it has given him a unique perspective into the ever evolving music scene. Trance music began defining his life at the young age of 14, but thoroughly enjoys any type of music equally. He sees the music as an escape from the daily doldrums of life and says music can change a persons life in an instant pulling from his own experiences. His only goal in life is to share wonderful music with people and take electronic music to a higher plain with more accountability and creating a safer environment for his friends.
