As has been our custom, for the early event arrivals and local dancers we will have an opening night ‘Kickoff Dance at BB Kings Restaurant & Nightclub on Thurs. night Dec. 29th. Arrival time is up to you. BB Kings is located directly across the street from the Rosen Plaza Hotel where the New Years Event takes place this weekend. It is upstairs in the Pointe Orlando complex. A great place to eat and terrific Live Band Blues entertainment. Some of our own Swing music will be played between band sets. You will need to pick up either a FloorPlay Business card or New Years Event flier that will be available at the FloorPlay Swing Vacation registration desk to present at BB Kings to waive the normal $5 admission fee to the club.
Hope to see you there!
Sunday is Red, White & Black night!
If you are able, we would like to have everyone wear Red, White or Black on Sunday night for social dancing—your choice of any of those colors, or any combination of 2 or all 3. It’s not mandatory, but we though it would be a fun thing to have a color scheme… especially for those who will be posting pictures or videos on Facebook or videos of Sunday night dancing on Youtube. Other events have done this and it makes for really interesting pictures and videos to help promote the event for the following years.
