This meetup group is intended to serve dancers seeking to meetup with other dancers at area dance venues.
Let's face it. You love dancing. You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't.
But we've all been there before, where you show up to a dance, hoping to have a good time. But the only ones on the dance floor, having a great time, are people who came with their dance partner, and they don't care to dance with anyone else other than their exclusive partner, leaving you with no one to dance with. But you aren't necessarily looking for romance. All you want to do is dance.
Hey we've been there too. And we like the idea of going out to places to meet familiar people who like dancing as much as we do, and may be willing to dance with us too.... or at least be willing to hang out at a dance event with us. Hence the reason for this meetup group.
Meetup group members are not solicited for donations. All meetup group fees are paid for by Dance Lovers of Central New York, LTD, a not-for-profit organization. Meetup group members are only responsible for the fees to be admitted to the event they wish to attend, payable to the organization or individuals who run that dance activity.
To be listed as an event for this meetup group, the event requires at least one dancer who is a member of this meetup group, who is not the event sponsor, but who wishes to attend that event, and hopes other dancers are also interested in attending. Contact any of the meetup group organizers to have an event listed if you are interested in going to it.
Meetup events are also possible if you wish to sign up for a dance lesson (or series of lessons), and are interested in having other group members join you in the lesson.
We highly encourage the taking of dance lessons for your own personal benefit (regardless of whether a meetup event has been generated for it), as it not only helps you to become a better dancer, but it is a great way to meet new people who are also interested in that same type of dance. Taking lessons and becoming a better dancer also means increasing the possibility of more people wanting to dance with you whenever you go out.
We also encourage you to have other interested dancers you meet in these lessons to join this meetup group, since not only can you join this group for free, but you now have a group of people you can share your dance moves with who are familiar to you, and now you can find a common place to go dancing together.
