DJ Schedule

 
Hey everyone!  We're working out our schedule for Barefoot Boogie as a real, live dance again. It might be something like first and third Fridays and occasional Sundays. Studio space is hard to find these days, and Finn Hall is a beautiful place to dance. They won't rent to us every week because they want to leave some weekends available for others to rent for special events (as opposed to recurring events like us).
 
LATE-BREAKING NEWS:  We will Boogie this Sunday, August 7. Stay tuned for news about Fridays...we might wait until September due to a lack of DJs and lots of folks being out of town, including for Burning Man.
 
Finn Hall is a big, beautiful studio with lots of ventilation and lots of room for us to spread out:  http://www.finnishhall.org/
 
The event is vax-only, per the rules of the studio. Masks are welcome but not required. Email your vax card to Christina at christina.tuccillo@gmail if you haven't already, or just bring it with you.
 
Entry fee is $15 and up, sliding scale. You're welcome to pre-pay:
Paypal or Zelle to christina.tuccillo@gmail.com or
Venmo @Christina-Tuccillo
 
 
The info below is for Zoom dances, which are happening less regularly now:
 
If you'd like to donate for our (almost) weekly dances, here's how:
Paypal or Zelle to christina.tuccillo@gmail.com or
Venmo @Christina-Tuccillo

Props we often use include:  fun hats, light-weight scarves, stuffed animals, and a light you can hold or wear
 
Zoom dances are more fun when more folks have their cameras on, so please do! This is a community event, and we all need to contribute in some way to keeping up the vibe.
 

Message me ahead of time if you'd like to attend but I might not recognize your name. Otherwise I might not let you into the Zoom room (in order to avoid Zoom bombing). Thank you!
 
Each week I will post the Zoom link here and in our Facebook group about 15 minutes before the start of the dance.
 
Our usual format:
7:30 - Arrival -- you will start in a virtual "waiting room" and be allowed in, which is a Zoom feature to prevent Zoom bombing. (You may arrive at any time -- I'll let you in whenever you arrive.)
7:30 - 7:45 -- Warm-up dancing, with music increasing slightly in tempo and energy -- cameras off for fewer distractions, so we can really unwind
7:45 - 8:45 -- Uptempo music
8:45 - 9 -- Cool-down, slow music
9 - 9:15 -- Closing “circle” and chat for those who wish
 
If you'd like to donate, here's how:

Our time zone is Pacific Daylight Time, UTC-7.
 
To join in, you need to have the (free) Zoom application on your device, but you do not need to sign up for a Zoom account or need to login to Zoom. If you don’t have Zoom installed on your device, and you try clicking the meeting link, it will  prompt you to download or install Zoom right then. So ahead of time, it’s best to install it before the dance: https://www.zoom.us/download .
 
(On computers, the application is called “Zoom Client for Meetings.” If you search for ZOOM in the app store, it will be called “ZOOM Cloud Meetings, Meet Happy.”)
