Just Dance!

There are 2 big social events at the NDSC Convention - the dances. There is a dance on Friday night for the Welcoming/Opening Reception, and then Saturday night's Just Dance event.

They aren't quite kid-friendly. For one they go from 9-11pm. A very late bedtime and then an early wake-up time the next morning for workshops that start at 0830 aren't the best for kids.

Plus they are well-attended (crowded). Which is great! And loud.
We bring our kids to continue to expose them to that atmosphere and for the most part they handle it fairly well.

Usually when we first arrive in the room they cover their ears saying it's too loud.

We stay on the outskirts of the dance floor and try to meet up with friends who also have younger kids and eventually they start dancing.

After a bit of dancing we usually find a spot away from the dance floor, but where we can still hear the music, and play with friends. They end up having a great time... and then near the end tell us they are tired and want to go to sleep.

Joe and I even get on in on the dancing fun! 

These are such fun dances ... just wish they could start at 8 instead of 9 for the younger crowd.

I was at the convention on Saturday and Sunday. Drove in from home each morning. Next year we plan to go as a family to attend all of the events. I saw you once but was in a conversation I could not excuse myself quickly from and then could not find you. Would love to meet you sometime!

It looks like a blast but I'm with you - even for us grands - starting at 8 would be much nicer... :)
