Kingston’s valentines SLOW DANCE 2017!
Saturday, February 11th
at the Grad Club (162 Barrie st).
Doors, Dance cards and DJs at 9pm sharp.
Formal dress encouraged (but not necessary)
THIS IS OUR 7th ANNUAL SO GET EXCITED!
Our Slow Dance is always a raging and festive dance party peppered with slow songs pre-selected by DJs. These tracks are printed on dance cards that you can use to sign up for slow dances with fellow attendees. With DJ Dreamboat and DJ LK, as well as DJ Ben Nelson and DJ Haircut (the dudes you adore as PS I Love You), its sure to be “a night to remember.” A true adult prom and re-do of hilarious middle school dances.
As always, designated dancers will be making the rounds, adorned with decorative sashes, making sure that there are no wallflowers. These people are approachable and utterly babely. They’ll help you get into the swing of the evening.
Photo booth on sight!
**** Kingston’s own Mimi Osa will perform a few hits for you to dance to midway through the evening! *****
advanced $10 tickets available at the Grad Club as of Feb 4th!
