Blindfolded Ballroom: November 1, 1:30-2:30pm  
Hey! Want to be a guinea pig for a dance-and-sense-based experiment? Join me and dilletante for a Blindfolded Ballroom workshop. It's just what it sounds like, and we've never done it before, so it will be a learning experience for everyone. If it's successful (which is to say, if it's interesting), we'll almost certainly do another, but it's too soon to make promises.

You don't need ballroom experience, just a willingness to play in your body and experiment with a partner in a dance context. You don't need to bring a partner; we'll probably be switching people up over the course of the workshop.

This will be November 1, 1:30-2:30 PM in studio 5 some other time/date at the Dance Complex in Cambridge. RSVPs would be greatly appreciated, and if you have ballroom experience, a note about that in your RSVP may help us in our planning.

Yay!

Cool! I'll be there! I have experience as a follower in Latin dances. I can waltz to save my life, just. ;-)

Is it okay if I forward this to majes?

Sure! We're not advertising broadly, since it's all very testing-the-waters, but we're happy to have friends!

Dance Complex scheduling snafu! We'll be doing this, but a different time and day. Stay tuned!

I'd love to try that! I took a bunch of ballroom dancing classes in college, but that was almost 20 years ago now. Let me know if you want to know the styles I have experience with.

Oh, and you might want to edit this to ask people specifically if they have experience as a follower or a leader, if having an imbalance would affect your plans.

You know, it's been years since I've done any ballroom dancing but I always enjoyed it. I'm game.

Would a "maybe" be acceptable? It sounds like fabulous fun and I'd like to do it but I don't know what that weekend is shaping up like yet.

I have a tiny amount of formal ballroom experience as both leader and follower, and a significant amount of Swing dance experience as leader.

(And, yes, "maybe" is totally fine :) )

(I hope you'll be able to make it whenever it is!)
