Questions/Need to know when...
« on: May 20, 2014, 01:21:29 PM »

Hey, I was curious if certain days and times have been announced for certain events:
The Fanimaid Café
The Hentai Nights
The Yaoi Nights
The Concerts (Who It Is and When They Will Be Performing)
The Dance
The Schedule for the Shuttle to Clockwork Alchemy

And If anyone knows, is there wifi in the convention center?

Thank you! :D

As for wifi, in my experience, there is wifi, but with 25,000+ people trying to access it, it isn't very reliable, so don't count on it being there.

I think when you say "rave," you mean the Dances. These times were posted by kookiekween99 in a previous post. :)

From my understanding, they are not called "raves" due to the connotation that the term might bring (though they might have other reasons in addition to that one - I don't speak for them). The Dance department is the one with all the fancy DJ's and flashy lights, from my experience way, way, way back when. :P

The only "rave" at Fanime is the Dance. The only other thing I could think of that goes with the category of dance is the Black and White Ball, which is a formal event Sunday evening.

Okay, now I'm a little confused.  So there's the B&W Ball, and there are the dance lessons held before it for people who want to brush up on their skills.  (I'm guessing that's what the stuff in rooms 230-232 is at night.)  But now, there was definitely a rave, at least in previous years.  It was held in the CC's upper floor on I believe Friday.  There was always a long line to get in, and the dance room was dark and cramped.  I do know that in previous years there were problems with the event (mainly with people breaking con etiquette/rules), so did they decide to stop doing it?  If they did, can't say that surprises me entirely, but I thought they were simply enforcing stricter rules for that one.

We do not call our dances "Raves" but if you are referring to a large dark damp room in which hundreds of sweaty people dance to house, trance, and other types of music that is indeed our Dance that is held every year. ;)

Ah, I see.  That was indeed what I was referring to.  I guess while staff doesn't call it a rave, there are attendees who do, since I have only heard it called a rave and not simply a dance.  Good to have that cleared up.  In that case, the dances that were mentioned before by kookiekween in rooms 230, 231, and 232 - are those all dances, or are those ballroom lessons in preparation for the Ball?  Curious because the time frames seem more suited to dances, but I thought that was only held once over the weekend.

The Dance (aka the "Rave") happens at night in rooms 230, 231, and 232 of the SJCC over the course of several nights. This is the one in the dark room with electronic music.

The Black & White Ball is the formal dance that takes place Sunday night in Parkside Hall. There are also formal dance lessons/demonstrations throughout the weekend leading up to the B&W Ball also in Parkside Hall. These both involve ballroom dancing.

Hope that clears up some of the confusion.

That certainly clears up my confusion, thanks!  I'm just a bit surprised since I thought in previous years it only happened one night, like the Ball.  Either that was changed recently, or I was mistaken.

The dance has always been a multiday event every year. There will be three rooms this year so now you will have a better chance of being able to find something you'll want to hear :D
