In past Slow Dances, everyone dances! quite amazing. Since there are no barriers, no special dance skills, everyone dances.
Using the conversation topics name tags as a great ice breaker, you can start conversations about interesting subjects right away.
What to put on your conversation name tag? anything that you would like to talk about.
Some ideas: favorite vacations, favorite restaurants, favorite movies, favorite tv show, favorite plays,
favorite music (rock, opera, grundge, industrial, oldies), the weather (everyone has a great weather story!),
pets (cats, dogs, birds), sports (hiking, skiing, sailing, darts, bowling, golf, camping, cars), pro sports (49ers, warriors, sharks),
hobbies (bridge, collecting, antiques, knitting,),gaming, costuming, renaissance fairs, Dickens Fair, green living, there are no limits
You will be amazed at how many interesting topics there are!
Quite often people just get slower and slower at their dancing because they have such interesting conversations.
This idea came about in discussion with friends who have attended many dances and other singles meetups,
but were also frustrated at how difficult it was to discover any mutual interests.
So the idea was created to have everyone write down 4 topics of
conversation where you give permission for people
to start a conversation with you about that topic. You don't have be an expert,
or knowledgeable about the topic, only that you enjoy talking about it.
That way you can start having interesting conversations right away
without having to waste a huge amount of time with useless chitchat.
When combined with Slow Dancing, you have 3 1/2 minutes to get started with conversations.
Slow Dancing is much like the last dance at a high school prom. Sway left, sway right.
