    Looking forward your replies! Thank you

    I know what you mean, Olga - photos can be very deceptive. From mine people often assume that I'm short, grey and balding, when in reality I'm 6 feet 4 inches tall and bear an uncanny resemblance to George Clooney. Good luck with your impending and future gatherings. No doubt as word spreads the numbers will improve.

    I've done a lot more events with Walkers and Joggers Olga, including organising a couple, and in my experience about half those who've RSVP'd 'yes' actually show up. I was curious as to whether the same unwritten rule applies to this group. If only twenty of those present were from PiA when about fifty booked then W & J has some serious competition in the no-show stakes. To be honest, the venue for the last event looks quite small so, from a comfort and hygiene standpoint at least, perhaps the lower than expected turnout wasn't such a negative outcome. I'm glad the events fill a gap in the market, Jane. That advantage should help guarantee their future.

      Hi Nigel,
      It is very hard make the right judgment of the venue just from my photos. When I was taking photos, I took photos of people from meetup and not the whole venue.
      There were also 3 big areas and terrace, but I did not take pictures of that because no one from meetup was there and they were empty, so no point on showing that. From “a comfort and hygiene standpoint” this place can include 300 people easily, so 65 people it is a fifth part of the whole venue, so there is plenty of space for everyone.
      Also if you have organised a lot of events you should know how difficult it is to find such a big and nice place for free. The owner hired a DJ and put all the decoration to create a romantic atmosphere for us and I really appreciate it.
      I strongly recommend you to visit the place or attend the meetup, before getting into any conclusion.
      But anyway thank you for your interest in my event, it confirms that it is great idea!

    Hi Nigel!
    I attended the first Dance Party and it was great! Its something that Adelaide has needed for a long time. Its hard for women to go out on their own but with this I feel safe! Also everyone has been lovely which always helps! Hope to see you soon! You can read my Reviews on both here and the Dance Party Review pages.

    Just curious Olga, but judging from the photos the numbers were well below 100 meetupers; if you don't mind me asking, what ultimately was the attendance figure for the evening?

      Hi Nigel
      More than 100 people RSVPed to this event, but between all meetup groups there were about 65 people.From this group, only 20 people (amount of people who paid for the meetup)
      The owner of the venue and I put a lot of afford.My first reaction was that I won't organize these type of events anymore,cos many people didn't come, but I've started to receive nice messages from people and that helped to change my mind. Also I think that it is very difficult to find a place where to go for single people over 35-55 years old, it is hard to go out on your own to pubs or clubs. With us it's not!
      The NYE is coming and if you don't want to be that third wheel for your friends, this is the event for all those people.It's Free!
      I am not a professional organizer and I am trying to do my best.Each time will get better. DJ, free speed dating, games, cheap dance classes., etc. I appreciate that people came to thank me for organizing this event.
      Let’s keep more fun and great events coming!

    So true Olga,I love the magic moment bit ,that I have to have my say..you never know what can happen from one moment to another..the love in the air amongst people,such a beautiful powerful energy,combined with dancing is an expression of emotions.As much as ones true inner beauty shines through,being and looking your best enhances those physical attributes that one already has..that initual attraction is always a good start..then what one feels..to listen carefully to what one feels within..then to discover ones true inner colours of another.May you all believe and make a wish to what your heart desires and you never know what you may happen to stumble across and meanwhile have fun,be happy within yourselves,smile and the world will smile with you,live in and embrace those precious moments this special evening and what will be..will be and so be it. Too deep..words of wisdom..I think we already know all this..but lets remind ourselves and reinforce it.cheers

      Hi Michel, This dance party is about to create a magic moment that would take us away from our daily routine, meet other people and have fun dancing. You will have to agree that the first thing you see in someone when you don’t know them is their exterior, so I do not see anything wrong in wearing a shirt and trousers. also girls will be dressed up! But anyway it is your decision.

      Thanks Olga .. will leave jeans in the car and maybe don a suit then perhaps ... thanks for organising what sounds to be a great event

      Hi Pat, The owner will hire a DJ specially for us, he will be playing recent dance and pop hits, but I think we can ask him to play any music like at any other place. He hasn't had time yet to advertise this event because I have decided to have this event it in this venue two days ago.
