Panels and Workshops / Black And White Ball 2008: Updated 4/21
« on: October 25, 2007, 05:06:48 AM »
Well, due to the appearant success of the Black and White Ball, by popular demand, will be back in 2008!  I would like to thank everyone who attended in 2007 and will be working very hard to make sure that 2008 is just as fun as 2007 was.  This coming year, we may see some changes to the ball however.  As many of you noticed, the room was packed for the vast majority of the Ball which made ballroom dancing difficult to say the least.  In an effort to increase the amount of space dancers have on the floor, we may be implementing some kind of capacity check.  If the room is too full, we may stop allowing people into the Ball until such time as someone leaves etc. or we might go with a dress code.  We may also be moving to a bigger room but nothing is final yet.



Ok.  Now that the boring stuff is out of the way, I will be taking song requests prior to the event, but will not be able to take them at the time of the event.  If you would like to request a song, please post here and email me at bwball@fanime.com.  Additionally, I can't guarantee that all requests will be played.  Songs will have to be ballroom dancable.  If you can provide an mp3 of the song you would like to request, that will guarantee that at least you have a shot at getting it played.  I may post the playlist before the con - or not.  I will have to see how much time I have :P



Lastly, I am curious how people liked the lessons that were offered in 2007.  We are considering trying to increase the number of lessons and possibly styles for 2008.  If you would like to learn a specific type of ballroom dancing, speak up! Maybe we can put together a lesson.  This event is, like the convention, by fans for fans so I would like any feedback and/or suggestions on ways to make this event even better.



Update 2/18/08:
The Dress Code is now online on the Fanime website.  Please take a look so you are prepared when you arrive.



Update 4/21/08
The Schedule of lessons has been posted on the Fanime website.  Please take a look so you can start to plan your weekend!

Well, due to the very apparent success of the Black and White Ball, by popular demand, will be back in 2009!  I would like to thank everyone who attended in 2008 and will be working very hard to make sure that 2009 is just as fun as 2008 was.  This coming year, we may see some changes to the ball however.  As many of you noticed, the room was packed again for the vast majority of the Ball.  In an effort to increase the amount of space dancers have on the floor, we will be keeping the dress code as it seemed to go over well and we will implement line control again as needed.  We may also be moving to a bigger room but nothing is final yet.



Ok.  Now that the boring stuff is out of the way, I will be taking song requests prior to the Ball, but will not be able to take them at the time of the event.  If you would like to request a song, please post here and email me at bwball@fanime.com.  Additionally, I can't guarantee that all requests will be played.  Songs will have to be ballroom dancable.  If you can provide an mp3 of the song you would like to request, that will guarantee that at least you have a shot at getting it played.  I may post the playlist before the con - or not.  I will have to see how much time I have :P  Last year, my playlist wasn't final until only a few hours before the Ball.



Lastly, I am curious how people liked the lessons that were offered in 2008.  We are looking at various styles for 2009 and I would like to know what you would be interested in learning.  If you would like to learn a specific type of ballroom dancing, speak up!  This event is, like the convention, by fans for fans so I would like any feedback and/or suggestions on ways to make this event even better.



UPDATE:  3.14159265358979323846...

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!  We have our room and I can now announce where it is!  Are you ready?  We are going to be in the Fairmont's Regency Ballroom this year!  This place is gorgeous and will take the ball to a new height.  For everyone who complained about the room not being big enough and everyone who waited in line the last two years, THANK YOU!  You wanted a bigger room, you got it and it's beautiful to boot!  Let's see if we can get enough people this year to have a line again (secretly likes having a long line to get in to his event - with the room full of course)!

Did you like it?  Was it fun?  Would you go again?  What could have been done better?
