« on: August 29, 2018, 11:53:51 PM »
Hey Con-Goers!

Want to dust off your waltz, foxtrot, or swing? Wondering where to find social dance events at Dragon Con this year? Here is the list so far! Disclaimer: List made by Dragon Con's swing dance community, so it is bias towards EC Swing/Lindyhop events.

Thursday:
8:30 PM - 11:00 PM - Yesteryear Lagoon & Lounge Sheraton Pool, Hawaiian-print clothing and/or vintage swim suits encouraged, but not required. The dance floor is probably concrete.

Friday:
8:30 PM - 11:00 PM - The Atlanta Swing Orchestra, Hyatt Centennial II-III, Floor was carpet last year, but a great band!

8:30 PM - 9:30 PM - Temporal Ballroom Dance Lesson, Westin, Savannah Ballroom. Proper dance floor! Note: The Dragon Con Swing Dance Community will miss this lesson because of the Atlanta Swing Orchestra's Performance, but will arrive at the Temporal Ball ASAP after the Orchestra finishes.

Sunday:
10:00 PM - 2:00 AM Mechanical Masquerade, Sheraton Grand Ballroom A-F, Proper dance floor in the middle with carpet all around.
Warning: There is a plain Masquerade going on somewhere else at the same time. Do not be misled! Come to the Sheraton for dancing! We have had some very confused dancers in the past.

I caught the Atlanta Swing Orchestra and part of the Temporal Ball event. Both were great. My husband and I were super rusty on our dance moves. I'm glad to see so many social dancing events. Motivation for next year!
