What are you covering as "social dance"? I had been thinking of something potentially similar as part of my GOHship at Confusion, so was wondering what you were covering, and if it overlaps or otherwise is similar, whether I might end up recruiting you as my "assisted by" person.

What we cover depends on the people who come, and what they are able to pick up. I generally start with a warm up walk-dance around in a circle and talking about basic motion and theories of dance, things about moving hips and knees and getting yoru arms up above your head -- notes about club dancing and sharing the dance floor, how to avoid hitting people accidentally as well as how to hit on people without being scary stalker dance floor person. If people are grooving to it we might teach a basic partner step or two, plus how to dip someone, and I could see doing waltzing or swing in the last 20 minutes. We take questions. that sort of thing.

I would be delighted to be your "assisted by" person!

Ok, that sounds cool, too -- but not what I was thinking. I was thinking "social dance" the way a ballroom instructor might use it, rather than the more extensive how to dance socially at a traditional con dance.

I was thinking to maybe run through a basic swing lesson, single-step and triple-step swing, under-arm turns, maybe a bit more than that.

I'll get back in touch once I've got a better handle on what I'm doing as GOH, probably next year sometime. Thanks.

It's pretty new, yeah. I put it up after skencon, from which it is a picture, but I don't use it a ton.

This caught my eye, do you think its an age thing? That younger people tend to be more touchy feely and with fandom aging we do not do it as much?

Try to get to a Bradley Denton event and I wish I could, I really enjoyed seeing him at Lonestarcon and meeting Carolyn's husband there too.

Don't forget to eat.

Are we going to the same cons?

Mostly the same cons, but we are definitely not hanging with the same people at those cons these days.

I can post to my calendar but its not obvious to me I am posting to the Stilyagi calendar.

Is anyone supposed to be able to or just you and now me?

When you post a calendar event there is a drop-down menu for what calendar to post it on (yours or the Stilyagi calendar, for instance)

If you click on Manage Calendars at the bottom of the calendar list in the left sidebar of Google Calendar, you can select the stilyagi calendar and edit it's Shared settings to see who can add events. I think there are 7 or 8 of us but I'm not sure off the top of my head.

This reminds me so much of a conversation I had this weekend where we all agreed Dan knows really smart start-up people, and I know Dan, so I know people who know people.

heh

I think it's cool that I'm a fan GoH too. I hope by the end of the weekend more people think so, so that I might be invited to do it again...
