  • BIDA Family Dance Timing

    April 2nd, 2018
    contra, organizing  [html]
    Someone was asking how the BIDA family dance timing works, so here's it written up:
    5:00
    hall opens, family dance musicians set up on the floor
    5:30
    family dance starts
    5:45
    most of the kids who are coming are here by now
    6:00
    sound person arrives for evening dance, starts setting up on stage
    6:30
    family dance ends, start setting up for potluck
    6:34
    tables and chairs are set up, people start getting potluck food
    6:41
    everyone has their food
    6:45
    evening band starts their sound check
    6:50
    most of the kids are done eating, back to running around
    7:00
    most of the adults are done eating, though still at the tables
    7:05
    beginner's workshop starts by the stage, people keep eating
    7:15
    people start cleaning up from the potluck
    7:30
    workshop ends, evening dance starts

    And a series of diagrams showing how this works out in our hall:

    While this looks like very tight timing when I'm describing it, the actual timing tends to feel pretty good.
