Pittsburgh Grooveline: Dance parties at Spirit, Irma Freeman Center, and more (Feb. 13-19)

Each week, Pittsburgh City Paper compiles a list of Pittsburgh dance parties for you and your crew to bust loose to the best bangers, EDM, pop hits, and more. (All events are 21 and over unless otherwise stated.)

And because Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year, make sure to look for dance nights dedicated to the holiday, as marked by the ❤️️ emoji.
