No revotes, I'm probably going to close the poll soon.  Your feedback/comments are the more important thing.

Points of clarification:
<1> If you vote for 18+, please state why
<2> There has not been a direct cost associated with this room in the past (may change this year).  In the past, the sound, lighting, djs were all volunteer.

Live Programming and Events / FANIME DANCE 2011: DJ RECRUITMENT
« on: February 03, 2011, 12:56:19 PM »

FanimeCon is a growing annual anime convention held at the San Jose Convention Center during Memorial Day Weekend.  In 2011, FanimeCon will be held May 27 to 30.  The 2011 Dance Management Team’s mission is to successfully plan dance events during FanimeCon which promote a fun, safe, and enjoyable experience for attendees.  These dance events must contribute to the overall success and support the growth of FanimeCon.  Dance events are currently being planned for May 26, 27, 28, and 29. 
The Dance Management Team is currently seeking applicants to staff the event as DJs and part of the technical crew.  Questions regarding these positions should be sent to fanimedj@gmail.com.  The Security Management Team is recruiting staff (Rovers) separately and inquiries should be made to steve@fanime.com.

 -   All Dance Staff positions are on a volunteer basis (there is no financial compensation).
        o   As a staff member you will receive a badge to the convention as well as the option to purchase a staff t-shirt and possible discounts on hotel rooms. (From FanimeCon Website)
        o   Guest passes are still being negotiated with Con Management for DJ/Performer’s guests.  At the time of this posting there is no guarantee that this will be available.
 -   All Dance Staff positions must adhere to the requirements, rules, and code of conduct for all FanimeCon Staff members.
 -   All Dance Staff must attend the Dance Staff Meetings in April and May (exceptions can be arranged with the chair).
 -   All Dance Staff FanimeCon mandatory Staff meeting in May.


The Dance Management team will make the following changes in 2011:
 -   DJs must have been selected through the DJ Selection Process (Exception: Con Guests of Honor/Headliner DJs)
 -   DJs will be guaranteed at least 2 2-Hour Time Slots.
 -   In addition to the 2 Time Slots, DJs must be prepared to make an additional contribution of being part of the setup/breakdown equipment crew, graphic design, marketing street team, site lead, or Stage Security.
        o   Involvement with other departments and other FanimeCon participation will not be recognized as meeting this requirement.
 -   In the past, DJs were allowed to bring and connect their own equipment.  In 2011, DJs WILL NOT be allowed to connect additional equipment unless prior approval was given by the Dance Management Team.  (I.E.: CD Players, Keyboards, Visual Projectors, Effect Processors, Traktor).
        o   In 2011, the standard booth setup will be 2 monitors, 2 CDJ 800s/1000s, Serato SL1, Pioneer DJM 700/800 Mixer)

Scheduling and staffing of DJs will be handled differently in 2011.  Every year there are more DJs interested than DJ Time Slots available.  To make this an enjoyable experience
 -   All DJs interested in participating as staff member must go through the DJ Selection process.  Previous staff participation will not guarantee a timeslot on the DJ Schedule.
        o   Applications will be accepted until February 27, 2011.
                +   Every applicant will be contacted by a Selection Committee member.
                +   In Addition to the Application, DJs must provide:
                        •    A picture (at least  400x600dpi)
                                 o   Submission of the photo is an acknowledgment that FanimeCon can use this photo on electronic (I.E. www.fanime.com) and printed promotions (I.E. Con Program). 
                        •   A 20 Minute (minimum) mix of what they intend on playing if selected.  They can provide the selection committee their submission by sending an email link or through an arrangement with the Selection Committee. 
                                 o   Submission of this mix gives the Dance Management Team your approval to use this mix in the future for promotion of the Dance Event.
                                 o   The Dance Management Team will contact applicants between February 13 and March 6.
                                 o   Final selections will be made and selected DJs will be notified by March 12.
                                 o   DJs that were not selected will be notified on March 13.
  -   Selections will be based on skill, music format, and total commitment (Participation/contribution).  Applicants under the age 18 will have to follow FanimeCon’s Staffing requirements for minors.  Applicants under the age of 18 who are selected will only be guaranteed 1 Time Slot.  This is done because of the possibility of one of the dance floors having age requirements.

Please vote.  Even though this poll may seem like a popularity contest, it is actually aimed towards creating a baseline or metric on a completely different topic.

whoops wrong post for my reply..that meant to go to the thread on the second room

It's interesting to see the trend of the poll.  In the previous year's dance poll it seemed as though there was an interest in keeping it 18+ for a different vibe/style of event.  2 years ago, the musical style was very different, but as a result turned away many people.  I encourage more people to vote to give us an idea of your feelings.

girl next door would be awesome :)

just to clarify, the dj names above were taken from the dj schedule that was posted in another thread.

I'm not posting this to solicit negative feedback.  Please think positive and select someone.

Many people have not known about the 2nd dancefloor in the Hilton for the past 3 years, but we hope to market it better this year.
Your feedback is valuable.

a night performance of the maids would be kind of cool

This is the negative poll, be sure to also cast a vote on the positive poll.
Be aware, even if you vote hear, you might still hear it :)  It just gives the coordinators a little something extra to think about when selecting the DJs for this year.

alternatively you can cast a negative vote in the other thread.

If you had to pick one....tell us.
reply if you want to provide feedback

Live Programming and Events / FANIME DANCE 2011: PAJAMA PARTY
« on: January 23, 2011, 09:22:45 PM »
We are in the process of identifying facilities and creating the schedule of slots.  The Thursday night before the con has had a dance for the last few years, but has struggled to attract attendees.  What's your feeling? Vote honestly...If you vote yes and we make it happen, please show.  If you don't know, vote on one of the maybes.  If you wouldn't go....vote no.

Live Programming and Events / FANIME DANCE 2011: DJs
« on: January 20, 2011, 11:28:14 AM »
The 2011 Dance is being coordinated by different people than last year. 

Every year there are more DJs interested in spinning than spots available, this year we have started putting together the plan/schedule early.

* Unlike previous years when DJs brought their own equipment, a booth standard of a Mixer (Pioneer DJM700 or DJM800) and 2 CDJs (with Serato SL1) will be provided.  Additional equipment is not allowed to be connected unless the dance chair has previously approved)

For those interested in becoming a member of the dance staff (DJs or other) please send your inquiry to

DJs must provide information about themselves, a link to a mix, and why they want to perform at fanime.
