The Dance? What's to be expected?

the stink also happens when deodorant or whatever is used fades away over the day so people tend to smell bad in the evening.

Remember, folks... SHOWER. Okay? Shower! You won't meet new people who share the same interests if you smell! BATHE. Seriously, they should hand out Pikachu shaped soaps or something. Complimentary showers for everyone!

...bathe!
06 - Naruto Uzumaki
07 - Ryoga Hibiki
08 - Kunio-kun
09 - Doctor Insano (Spoony Experiment), Seta Noriyasu
11 - Yuri Volte Hyuga

Help me make this year memorable! Take pictures with me at Kumoricon '11!

So is there going to be actual music with words? Or just techno stuff like at Sakuracon? O-o


I can guarantee actual words to songs, sometimes in even in Japanese.  Not all the time, but a great amount of the music will have words.  It’s hard to do the time warp without the cues of when to jump to the left and step to the right.  There will be a mix of various genres present at the dance.  Some J-pop\j rock, some anime themes, some trance anthems, some video game remixes, some syth-pop, music from DDR, a bit of industrial, a bit of class, some new favs, a smattering of beloved 80’s songs, and as I have said before chalk full of hoot, with just a little bit of nanny.  And if you have a favorite song bring it up to the DJ and get them to play it for you...

I didn't stay long at the dance last year, and I didn't go the year before,
but it's like any other dance, but 10 times better and with COOL people. 8)

Hmhmm Under 18 people?

Confusing problems about the dance for us young-uns.  On the schedule it says nothing about having to be 18 or older to stay at the dance past midnight.  In the rulebook it says its cool as long as you have a guardian...  So am I going to get kicked out anyway?  Last year I was told it was fine, stayed until one, and then another staff member came and said it wasn't ok, so I had to leave.  I just want to know what's going on.  I especially want to know since there's the second dance Sunday, and I can never get enough dancing X3.  If it will be 18+ it would be very helpful if the schedule said that...

I know that there was a previous post that said Kumoricon would probably follow Portland's curfew rules and such.  But that's not true...

Just wondering what's going on :3?

@Takmai
I'm looking at my schedule and I'm not finding another dance on Sunday.  I know some of us hoped for a second dance but I don't think that's going to be the case.
If you think of all the little details, there is very little difference between Fantasy Football and Dungeons and Dragons.

If you look at the pocket guide that's linked on the home page...  There's a dance Saturday night from 8 until 2... Then there's one on Sunday night from 12 until 2.  Its at the same time as the Bakazoku uncensored.

I spoke with Brenda at programming at the last meeting.  We will have an after hours dance.  It should start right after the Concert and last a couple hours.

"Between 12:00 midnight and 4:00 AM, minors age 17 and under must be accompanied by a legal or appointed guardian at all times."

"The City of Portland curfew differs slightly and is NOT enforced by Kumoricon inside the convention space."

Therefore I should be able to stay until the dances end, since I'll be with my appointed guardian.  The schedule does not say 18+ for those time slots.  Am I right?

Oh wow, yet another thing to get excited about. In '04 I stayed with like fifteen other people until the thing was done (The dance floor was absolutely empty). I was sixteen then, but was wearing my Caine mask so nobody really check me (That and the Yojimbo's were trying to be nice and let us youngins have our fun). Last year I managed to stay most of the way through it by finding random people to call a guardian until I was finally told to just get out and go back to my room (lols). This year I'm 18 (!!) so I get to stay out however late I want. I wouldn't suggest the little folk bend (break) the rules as much as I did, don't want to give the volunteers a headache.

This year sounds like the dance will be the best yet. Don't worry too much about requesting, the DJs usually hit up all of the songs you want. Two songs I've had to request both times that went over well (and are essential dance songs in my book) are "Ice Ice Baby" by Ice Cube (Eat your heart out) and "Bohemian Rapsody" by Queen. Hopefully we'll get those played again this year. :)

I wore combat boots both years and that was alright. I wouldn't suggest any sort of mask or thick headware (I wore a paintball mask and my head was covered by cloth) as it will get decidedly hot. Also, capes and long gowns should be left back in the room. Ripped my cloak more than once at  those dances.

About dancing: don't worry if you can't dance, I can't, it doesn't really matter. Do what's fun, no one will judge you. If you want to dance with someone, just walk up and ask if you can dance with them. Besides having a boy/girlfriend, I doubt they will turn you down. (I asked five or six pretty girls to dance last year and I was only seventeen. None turned me down.) If there's no conga line going, try to start one by asking those around you. That's how those things got going last year. Remember, it's all for fun, so don't hold back or be timid. I've seen many shy people come out of their shell on the dance floor and have a great time.

Umm... I think that should address most of the questions that were asked. Sorry for the long post, but I just want you all to have fun. :)

One last note: Don't leave stuff around in the actual dance room. I have a Seras Victoria figurine stolen last year after I hid it behind a trash can. Don't make my mistake.

Pleasseee tell me that the Guest DJ will be bringing Speed-core? Since most of it is, after all, made in Japan? And I suppose could be tossed into the J-Core catagory

Well, I didn't go last year because of my lowly 13 year old-ness, I was afraid of possibly getting crushed under all the tall people. D:
But when my cousin came home from the dance she told me about it, and I was like "ksjlhgslfrfdvjh;lkdrfv I'M GOING NEXT YEAR"
And after reading this thread I'm not sure I want to. xD
If I do I'll cling to someone like I always do when I lose intrest and beg them to leave with me.
:'D
