"The Social Butterfly" - United Salseros' social takes place this Saturday February, 28th, 2009 from 9:30 pm to 1:30 am at TDS Dance Studio at Empress Walk

Apart from many other common features of a dance school mixed social, this one gives every participant a dance card that "guarantees at least 10 dances with UnitedSalseros, assistant instructors, senior instructors, and performing members (including guest dancers outside the school) in a safe, fun-filled and non-intimidating environment."
And the main benefit, IMHO, is that senior dancers /Instructors would provide for a feedback, if asked for it before the dance.

Cover is $ 20, details are here:

Absolutely: time well spent!

Ten names on the dance cards were actually the names of the instructors, assistant instructors, performance group members and helpers (a.k.a. very good dancers).
And everybody wore a name tag - pretty helpful when looking for a match with your dance card name.

An average participant gets the card and looks for the matching names in the crowd: well, even the hottest ladies can't refuse the dance if their name is on the card - imagine that! And some of them would dance if asked, even if not on the card: the overall atmosphere was extremely friendly, and should I say, even happy... Looked like everyone had fun.

An added benefit was a feedback (if you ask before the dance) and some pointers are really noteworthy, such as hints on turns, holds, posture, particular moves... Obviously, this ain't a private lesson, but really, how many times have you been corrected when the instructor is not watching? Mostly, your ego is being spared bruising if you specifically don't ask for it:)

The name stickers are, IMHO, quite important thing to watch for at our own TDS socials, as they fall off very soon especially when it's hot and humid, and then I heard some beginner ladies complaining that there's no male helpers around to ask, while in fact there are enough of those who wouldn't refuse a dance. So, guys, watch for those stickies with your name on it! You are being sought after Smile

Yes I can second that experience.

It was really good event and I hope that it wasn't the last.
