Photos from The Valentines Edition of Slow Dance Night! (Part 1 of 3)

Slow Dance Night is like high school with a happy ending.
Text and photos by Sherwin, blogging by Amber.8:03 PM. A sunday night, with freezing rain outside, here we are, scared that no one is going to show.

9:27 PM. To our great relief, people arrive at a steady clip and by this time, the night is fully underway, and people, while still getting over their initial shyness, are starting to dance, and ask others to dance.

11:06 PM. Taken without the flash.

11:09 PM. This was about the crowdest it got. I had to squeeze past people to get back to the stage. The whole room was warm. But even though it was very hot, slowdancing is not exertion-heavy, and so I think people found it quite nice.

These last photos aren't as chronological as the ones above....This is the last photo I took of the evening, during the last song of the night. See what you miss when you leave early? The night transforms into a makeout party. Here, against the wall, our cigarette girl and one of our resident dancers tongue. Hawt.

Are you attending this event? Do you have an interesting story about SDN?

A nice person named Marites will be doing a mini-doc on Slow Dance Night, and is looking for
someone- a resident dancer or someone attending for the first time who would let her interview them about why they're going, and let her tag along for parts of the evening. If you could send her an e-mail at dancingmirror AT hotmail DOT com with your story and why you'd be interested in this, that would be great. merci.
