Free Ballroom Dancing in Robson Square Starts Friday, June 27, 2014

Our rally point (meet and greet, bring your own food, hang out prior to dancing) will be in front of the "rental" booth, from 6pm to dance start. Look for someone with a MEETUP sign.

    Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:

    1. Footwear - anything that is comfortable. For the ladies: NO STILLETO PLEASE! This is both for yours and other's safety. Runners are best as you are dancing on concrete.
    2. Clothing - Please don't wear tight clothing as you will be dancing. Accident can happens if your clothing is too tight.
    3. Please bring 3-5 dollars donation to support the event. The organizer receives no government funding but need to cover the expense of facility&equipment rental and insurance. You can also help by buying water and snack.

    4. Please do not leave you valuables unattended. There is a coat check when you can stash your valuables. The organizer is not responsible for loss.

    5. HAVE FUN! You have a lot of opportunities to make new friends!

    Hi Emily, in case I am late, or can't make it, could you please do this hosting? In similar outdoor events, we used a coloured ribbon, tied to the wrist, to identify our group. Thanks in advance.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
