...even though someone probably is recording it and you'll end up on YouTube...  Wink



Do you like dance? Dabble in dance? Like dance-related things? Want to learn to dance? Desperately need a tutu or a hip scarf or a painting of a tap-dancing rhinoceros?  This might be a swap for you!

I haven't really thought it completely through, still hashing out ideas, but the basics would be everything dance related.  So, the easy one for me (because I've done a lot of it) would be the example of bellydance: you could make costume pieces or jewelry or an altered MLP or Barbie or make a poppet or amigurumi or paint a picture or embroider a hoop or... you get the idea.  I'd try to pair up people with like styles or at least styles you'd be willing to craft for!  I think Pinterest would be really helpful in this, to give your partner an idea of what you'd like, and communication would be key. I'm also guessing ballet and bellydance would be the most popular, but I'd love to see the ballroom, tap, or swing dancers prove me wrong! Smiley

I was thinking a four-point-ish swap, with at least one medium or large, so basically a large and small, two mediums, or a medium and two smalls.  Extras can be discussed between partners!

Any interest? Anyone? Bueller?

I know the prefect thing for Zumba... (my friend is a zumba instructor!).  Smiley

There's not been a ton of interest, but I might try to start this one in a few weeks. I want to work around a friend's plan because I'm pretty sure she'll sign up... Cheesy

I love 80's music videos, like Thriller and Safety Dance and anything Madonna, does that count? Grin

Yes! Oh, how I adore 80s music... maybe amend the swap name to be more inclusive... music/videos are definitely a part of it!

I'd love to see something Safety Dance related, though I have to thank you for putting that song in my head... Smiley

This swap tempts me, not because I'm a dancer but because it reminded me of how much I love the Carlton Dance!

Hehe! Now I'm thinking what you could craft for that... I'm thinking hoop...

Yeah, I want people who just like dance things (comedy, pictures of ballerinas, whatever) to feel included, too!  There are a lot of dance-related things in movies, shows, videos...

Because something Safety Dance related would be so much fun...
