Social Dancers! Where do you plan to go this weekend? Tell us here (and in the Dragoncon Social Dance Facebook group) so we can all find each other.

Here are my best guesses at dance events for the day. Any other ideas and suggestions?

Friday, September 1, 2017:
3:30pm
Band: Frenchy & the Punk
Hyatt, Concourse
Live Performances - Hyatt Concourse Track

5:30pm
Band: Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands
AmericasMart II, Concourse II
Live Performances - AmericasMart Concourse Track

8:30pm
Event: The Tin Ear Music Salon
Sheraton, Athens Room
Brit Track

1:30am (technically Saturday, since it's after midnight)
Event: The Atlanta Swing Orchestra
Marriott, Atrium Ballroom
Live Performances Track

I will try hardest to be at the Swing Orchestra. What are your social dance plans?

The Atlanta Swing Orchestra event in the Marriott's Atrium Ballroom from 1:30-2:30am tonight/tomorrow morning is definitely garnering the most interest from the Facebook social dance community. Hope to see you there!

The Temporal Ball is encouraging social dancing and fancy clothes. We may check it out.

Sunday, September 3rd Dancing:

3:25-3:35pm
Event: Swing Dancers Assemble!
Hilton Lobby
If you don't know what I'm talking about, see the Facebook "Dragon Con Swing Dancing" group or ask a swing dance friend.

10pm-2am
Event: Mechanical Masquerade: Frontier
Sheraton, Grand Ballroom
Alternate History Track

Note: "The Mechanical Masquerade: Frontier" (an awesome alternate history event with social dancing) in the Sheraton is different from the "Masquerade" (a popular fashion show) held elsewhere. People have been fooled by the similar names every year. Don't let that happen to you! ^_^ Go to the Sheraton Grand Ballroom for dancing. See you there!

Any other social dance opportunities that I missed for Sunday?
