  • Boston Hall Search

    September 13th, 2011
    contra  [html]
    In figuring out whether a weekly dance would work closer in to boston, we need to know what's out there in terms of halls. The masonic hall in porter square, where we have the bida dances, is my current favorite option, but it's not perfect. I've created a google doc for this: weekly central contra exploration. Anyone can edit, and please do.

    The goal is to find a hall that would work. I currently think this means:

    • good public transit (subway, ideally). Cambridge or somerville is best.
    • under $300
    • sprung wood floor (not wood over cement)
    • room for at least 80 dancers, 150+ better
    • workable ventilation
    (The ideal hall would be the scout house for $150 in harvard square.)

    A good hall is crucial to the success of a dance. For example, the mit dance is really limited with their linoleum over cement. So it would be really helpful if you could think about what places you've been in the boston area that had good floors: churches, school gyms, yoga studios, dojos, etc. If you could add a short entry to the google doc that would be great. Then I'll be trying to find people to look into halls.

    I'll be at the mit dance tonight if you want to talk about any of this.
