Cheek to Cheek Planning: General Planning

From BluWiki

Cheek to Cheek will be for swing (Lindy Hop, Shag, Balboa, Charleston, etc.) dancers. If you do not belong in this category, perhaps you can attend one of NSS's many other events (planned by other people).

Back to Home: Cheek to Cheek Planning

Theme

The theme should be a dinner party around the time period of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Only that we're dancing savoy!

Budget:

The total budget should be around $400-500. Food needs: $x Lighting needs: $x Venue needs: $x

Funding sources

This money should mainly be provided by ticket sales, which should be $25 or $30 each. Other possible sources:

  • donations/sponsors
  • tips at the event
  • advertising in the programs.

Attendance:

This is held for Swing Dancers. I figure an open invitation would work, but I will still send out invitations as per usual. Open invitations to swing dancers.

Dates:

Ooh this is a toughie. I can have it either at my very last week.

Possible dates:

Thursdays:

  • December 1
  • December 8
  • January 5

Sundays:

  • December 3
  • December 10
  • January 7

Timeline:

October 28: Hopefully location found by now. November 1: Tickets go on sale. Location reserved absolute deadline. If this has not been done by then, the whole thing is off. November 5 (around): Location scouted and blueprints made. 3 weeks before: Purchasing begins. Staff execution training begins. 2 weeks before: Scripts produced. A week before: Execution begins. Printing, consolidation of resources, etc.

Location:

  • We need to obtain a private location with a sizable dance floor suitable for 10-12 couples dancing Lindy.

Renting a studio is unfortunately is out of the question. Memories is like $1,000 for downstairs, $2,000 for upstairs. Atomic could at best be $1,500 (it's really $1,800, but Jerry would cut me a deal because of my patronage).
