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.
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.
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.
