Welcome! My name is Jessie Eckels and it's my honor to be Hosting, DJing and teaching dance at this ball. I thought I would give you an idea of what you could expect and see what you all might have to contribute to making this ball even better!

I've done quite a few balls having over 10 years of dance experience. over 5 years teaching experience and 3 years hosting experience. I've done quite a few anime balls in that time and generally play Music that is classy, soft, danceable(waltz or slow with some variation) Picking my music from Japanese culture/Anime/Games and a few other sources. Combing through for only the best that will set an atmosphere conductive to an amazing evening.

That said I always like to find a few new songs. So if you have anything you think might be nice to hear for such an event please let me know. I'm always interested :)/>

Can't wait to see and dance with you all
Jessie

I am so excited! I have never been to an anime ball, or really any ball for that matter, so have no idea what to expect. Might you be playing any Foxtrot or V. Waltz somewhere in there? Or will it mostly be Waltz and...whatever a slow 4/4 tempo dance would be- Night club 2-step?

Also, I'm sure this is a rather ignorant question, but where can I find information on the panel and/or when and where will you be teaching? I can't find it under the Panels discussions, but I definitely don't want to miss that!

Mostly I will be using waltz and slow 4/4 tempo. I will have a few higher tempo waltz's if you really enjoy the Viennese waltz. But being as I only have limited time to teach and since most people will not be ready for high tempo waltz there will not be that many of them. I will not be teaching fox trot either(due to time restrictions) but there should be several song in my playlist that you could rock out with a fox trots :) The method i'll be teaching for slow music will not be night club 2 step but instead will teach blues fusion lead and follow theory(much more versatile). I want people to learn to understand lead/follow and tension matching, not just memorize steps. As to when and where these workshops will be taking place it has not yet been confirmed. Hopefully I will be getting info back soon :)

How about some lively swing music? I've heard a lot of people really enjoyed music from the Bioshock & Fallout series and with the growing popularity of The Great Gatsby and Boardwalk Empire, I figured most people would enjoy it. Apologies if this isn't what you're looking for.

Glenn Miller - In the Mood
Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks - Livery Stable Blues
Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians - Darktown Strutters Ball
Bobby Darin - Beyond the Sea

Again, apologies if this isn't what you had in mind.

i love these options. Though this year for the ball we are going with a Formal so there will be less jazz this year and more Waltz. I do also teach and DJ a lot of swing and blues. I might see about integrating a few into the playlist. Next year I've heard rumors that they may want to set up more of a jazz feel and I hope they do cause I can do that EXTREMELY well :)
