If you aren't going out and getting your dance on - you are sorely missing out. No one likes the fear of missing out, and squads show up to dance clubs for the music and crowds. The L.A. dance club scene is all that and more. For fun rave like nights, up-and-coming DJs, and accessible and unpretentious vibes, here are the best spots for dancing the night away.

Dance Yourself Clean At The Satellite
1717 Silver Lake Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90026

Channel your inner J-Lo and grab your pals for a serious no frills dance party at The Satellite. Dance Yourself Clean is about the music. The DYC concept, which was born in Seattle, is not your typical warehouse rave. DYC requests that you leave any inhibitions at the door and let yourself free to do your thang on the dance floor. DYC is all about the music and clubbers put it all out there with favorite dance beats by LCD Soundsystem, CHVRCHES, Charli XCX, Haim, Miami Horror and more. Fog, lasers, a big dark room and music fills the blank canvas giving dancers the space to create their mark.

The Lash
117 Winston St.
Los Angeles, CA 90013
(213) 687-7723

Cool and modern with a touch of wild, The Lash club treats patrons to two different types of rooms playing two distinct musical selections: 90s hip hop and EDM. DJs such as Bianca Oblivion, Broso, Francesca Harding, Pogo_Pope and Romy keep the music thumping in the electronica room, each providing their own style and flair. This is who keeps L.A. dancing. Patrons call out founder musician Ross O'Carroll for offering an always-fun night, free ice water, ample seating and reasonably priced drinks.
