Like many conventions, Sakuracon had a dance on multiple nights. I don't know what the room(s) used for the dance are also going to be used for, but I do know I would definately be interested in going to more than one dance. Has this idea been proposed before, and is it feasible? I would think there is enough interest to hold two, again, though I don't know what space/funding allows.

If we could do that, it would double the pleasure, double the fun and effectively, remind me of Doublemint Gum. *Coughs* Yes, well... Yeah... If it's possible (have a feeling it'd be really hard to do, for some reason... Scheduling conflicts) that'd be beyond awesome.

I would be unbelievably giddy if there were two dances. I really hope they'll conceder it. Con dances are the best.

I loved the multiple dances at sakuracon. So I vote trying to get more than one, if not no biggie... but they are tons of fun :D

I don’t dance, I'm to old and I walk funny if I have been up more than 6 hours.  Will there be any chaperones at the dance?   I can help confiscate all the liquor and bring rulers to ensure the boys and girls dance at least 12 inches apart.  I’ll need to watch every teen movie with a dance scene filmed between 1950 and 2000 to get all the tricks down.

Oh yeah VonDan and the Chaperone Aunts and liquor and rulers

I'll wear my tux

Are there any anime that take place in america in 1955 for this plan to work          the chaperone aunts need to be in cosplay with poodle skirts

*Suddenly has images of Back to the Future running through head*
I think Gate Keepers takes place around that time.

*On topic*
For me it kinda depends.  If the extra dance conflicted with a lot of panels and such I would say stick with one.  If not, maybe but I'm not sure I would go to the extra one.
If you think of all the little details, there is very little difference between Fantasy Football and Dungeons and Dragons.

I've got the dance schedueled for Sat. and the A-key-kyo concert (provided they are okay with it) on Sunday nite. So I'm sorry, but unless they bail, there will probably be only one dance this year.

Speaking of Scheduals, like like year we had a schedual online a few weeks before the con, i know that it's early, but is it possible to make one now just to see what panels/events are already planned and when?

just wondering because of the concert, AMV contest and cosplay skits, it looks to be packed this year. ^_^ I'm really exctied.

RE: sheduels:

There will be one online before the con - I hope - as for right now, nope. The earliest I could convicebly get the scheduel online would probably be first of July. ALthough if you run a panel I am more than willing to send updated copies of the scheduel as the happen. *hint hint*

And I as a chaperone left over from the dance the night before I can be like in the movie American Hot wax and when the kids dance at the concert I can have the police drag them out in handcuffs and turn the house light on jerry lee Lewis.   Ohh I need to watch the movie breakfast club again, the actor who was the teacher just died and there is a great role model for a chaperone

What we could do is before and after the Concert have DJ's take the stage to warm up the crowd and then close the night.  It would let us go later.  It would be a bit more work on my part with the lighting and sound set up but I think it would be a possibility.  Dj gear is light and easy to move compared to the gear a band hauls around.  The main problem is conflicting with a sound check and set up.  I'm curious on how much time you've scheduled for set up with A-Key-Ko?  I have a feeling were going to need quite a bit of it.

I think Snakeling has a great idea. It can take awhile for a crowd to start getting into a band, the mood for dancing, etc. Music before and after the concert would begreat for the overall mood of the show.

Hey vondan, was the sock hop, hot and theamy?

I'll dance. Will I need to show up early to learn new steps?

Think I'm looking forward to this "first con" thing equally as dreading it. At least I know how to be saying sumimasen or gomen nasai after all the faux pas I know I'll make. Having stolen vondan's confiscated liquor.
