Well kids, it’s official: My FlashDance parties are quite pleasant. 🙂 I have come to this conclusion after FD 3 – around 120 people dancing away for a few hours on a gorgeous night at the big plaza in front of the Ferry Building. I thought the last location was the best, but this was maybe even better. This one was a a bit bigger than the last maybe 120 dancing at any given time, maybe 140 showed up over the course of the evening….
I was exhausted, I had spent the night before at the hospital with two of my dearest friends who were giving birth to an adorable little girl & had gotten maybe 3 hours of real sleep that night. But the vibe was so great, the people (you!) were all so fun, and the night was so beautiful, I was brought back from the dead & forced to shake it, as I am wont to do… THANK YOU ALL…..
For those of you who missed it, this here video says it all:

& here are some more pix….. & here is someone else’s blog post (thanks general fuzz!) – complete with YouTube movie!
Oh & by the way, here is the playlist. While this was MUCH fun… I’m thinking it was a little too conservative. This happens for a couple of reasons:
- when I take a few too many requests
- when I worry too much about getting people to dance by only playing stuff they have heard before.
Starting with FD 4 I’m going to start changing this trend….
