I say both days after 10pm, really. :O It wouldn't be conflicting with anything, amirite?

Unless Der Cosplay goes past 10pm again this time >>;; *cough*

[EDIT]: Two days later, I realise that it wouldn't conflict with Der Cosplay anyway...Seeing as how thats on a Sunday. I'm dumb. XD lol

I'm looking forward to this i'd totally skip musicfest for this ^_^!!!!!

I like the masquerade too much, and 10 is too late for me to stay in san jose ^^; but if it was at 7-8 it'd be perfect!

I STILL don't have anyone to dance with. We should start hooking up to form some pairs or something. Try to get as many people hooked up with dance partners as possible beforehand...we can always switch later, but it'd be good to get a couple of songs in together first for those of us without dates an stuff  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

Dance is in the room after 9pm.

I still need someone to step up and be a DJ/provide me with tracks. I need this by Saturday.

I think the staffing will be ok.

I can DJ (And by DJ I mean put the CD in and press play, and if I have a track list for the CDs I can play 'requests' by putting the CD in and skipping to the track they want, and then press play. lol). Anyone else want to make the dance CDs? Two of them at about 80 minutes should be fine. Maybe 3.

We should probably have one with slow tracks like "A moment Like This" etc..etc...

And then one dance/house one

and maybe one R&B CD...

havent you ever gone to a dance? go stag, hang out by the wall, and during the last 2 songs find someone and ask them to dance. then go home and regret not making a move sooner.

ahhhh high school.

Dance/house/R&B? Are you sure you can DJ? You seem to have missed the point of a masquerade ball.

After 9p.m? what day?

gmomt- yeah i agree, I think if people want dance/house mixes that's the purpose of the other dance ya know??

That's the reason why some of us suggested a "ball/alternative dance" so that we had the option to be more formal, or do ballroom dancing etc~

I'm sorry, I was under the impression that we were floating more towards a Prom-esque type dance. You know, a better mixture of slow songs with the faster tracks.

So you just want all slow songs then? If you want to make CDs of the songs you would like to hear Gmontem or what the tracks would sound like, let me know or you can volunteer to take care of the music.

One of the "Orchestral Game Concert" CDs has a waltz arrangement of one of the Dragon Quest games.  I'll check later tonight at home for the title.  

There's also "Waltz de Chocobo" from the FFVI Piano Collections.  Too bad there isn't a "Tango de Chocobo", or is there? XD

And of course there's "Dance of the Balamb-fish" from FF8.  I just hope the male dancers don't try to act drunk on the first half of that piece. ;)

FanFicGuru, I didn't suggest that all songs be slow.  My comment was about the genre of music you suggested -- dance, house, R&B.

That'd be perfect... classical music with that special Fanime flair...
I have quite a few standard old-fashioned waltzes I could bring, should anyone want them.

Yeah the guy she was dancing with was pretty crazy. Said I was 3rd level null demon, even though I'm an exorcist..o.o;; I'm STILL jealous that he got to dance with her instead of me!! That's why I'm trying to get dance partners NOW instead of later and get my hopes crushed.

Like the time I asked my cute neighbor girl to dinner my treat...I left it open...she said yes. Then later she knocks on my door only to tell me that her b/f wouldn't let her do it! I mean earlier when she first moved here she was SO checking me out! I didn't even know she had a b/f!! :cry:  :cry:  :cry:
