So, since Anime North is not not holding an Anime Dance this year so... why not hold our own?

well you have to look at it from this point, i dont mean to be there bearer of bad news but, you have to find one that isnt already booked for that night, you also have to find a dj who isnt booked this close to that night as well, i am sure that you could find someone but they normally require 2 months booking in advance and theyw ould prolly have not a clue in hell as to what jpop and jrock were, theyw ould have no way of finding the right kind of music. i mean if you want normal music and the like then by all means, but what i might suggest is maybe, do an AMV dance, get someone with a laptop and fill it full of AMVs and then have them played on a projector, that may work but hey i dunno, there is a cheap place here in brampton but its all a matter of being able to get here. sorry if this is any discouragement

Heh Sounds fun. Sadly brampton is way out of the way for me (being IN Thornhill and whatnot)

Also, getting decent sound can be a problem. Our first J-pop dance at the JCCC was run off a boombox with really crappy little speakers, and the sound quality was terrible. You'll need at least two CD players and a mixing board so you can fade between the two, some really good speakers (that can handle high volume without sounding bad), and somebody who knows how to set all that up. ^_^;

Well I could probably finaggle some people from MINT (previously Mandell) to do this. I know a DJ or two who owe me a favour.

Where would you get the money? Things like this are never cheap, and you'd need the money up front.

I was really hoping for a dance myself, but I'm happy enough just to hang out with my friends at the High Park photoshoot that same weekend, which is why it was organized in the first place.

You know...

If people were more forthcoming to offer help/volunteer/show this much motivation/take this much responsibility with exisiting events, (such as the Anime North Halloween JCC Dance), you wouldn't have to be going thru this planning now.

Just a thought, for the future...

Well, as I recall, there had been a few people volunteering and Elemental was going to organize something, but things didn't work out. I'm sure if the AN staff had mentioned somewhere they actually wanted help, they would have received it. But from what I've read here, Tamara moved and no one else was planning to contact JCCC. I supposed the non-AN people were waiting to see if AN was going to put together the dance and when the official notice came saying no dance was happening, others decided to organize it.

I do agree, however, that it's a little late to be trying to organize something now. I think perhaps people should have let it slide this year and come back roaring next year. :)

True enough, but it doesn't take much for a bunch of people to say "Hey we're willing to become permanent voluteer staff to help handle this event what do we need to do to accomplish that?" Well. Maybe next year. :)
