Columbus has a variety of options for those looking to get their groove on.

But with so much diversity in the city's scene, where you want to dance in Columbus really depends on what you're into.

The following three events don't cover all the bases, but they are a diverse starting point for anyone looking to bust a move.

ReDO -- Every third Sunday of the month, Avalon, 205 N. Fifth St. in Columbus, plays host to the ReDO party, a living and thriving piece of Columbus hip-hop history as a vinyl-only event.

The events originally were broadcasted on public-access television and known for attracting such renowned talent as Blueprint, who went on to become one of the city's best-known hip-hop artists.

ReDO began at Garage Bar in 2011.

It took five years for it to take on its current status akin to DJ fundamentalism.

Heatwave -- Plenty of other organizations have held the building currently occupied by Ace of Cups, 2619 N. High St. in Columbus, but it's doubtful that any of them have used the space as effectively.

The venue plays host to a few specialty parties, including Mall Bangs, centering around '80s music, and Cathedral, at which one will hear plenty of goth and industrial music.

Although both of those styles have their moments, it would be difficult to find an event with as much mass appeal as Heatwave.

The first Saturday of every month, the all-vinyl event is full of old-school R&B, soul, Motown and garage, according to creator and DJ Adam Scoppa.

"I focus on collecting more obscure music apart from the hits," Scoppa said. "It's important to turn people on to new things."

Damn Girl -- It has been all over town, and it has stuck around. It reached its fifth birthday in July, with plenty of reason to celebrate.

Starting in 2013 at the Circus! bar, it moved to 400 West Rich and the Bluestone, finally settling at Skully's Music-Diner, 1151 N. High St., maybe the most disco ball-friendly venue in the city.

That kind of accessory is necessary for Damn Girl, which specializes in funk and disco music from the golden age of the late '70s to the present.

It's an easy kind of music to love, and for Damn Girl's founders, it was instilled at an early age.

"It's the extra effort that really makes it perfect," said DJ Charles Erickson.

It looks like Skully's will be home for the foreseeable future of Damn Girl, and the organizers couldn't be happier about it.
