Flummoxed by a Floor . . .

Posted by bj on Wednesday, June 16, 2010

My friend, the caller, has nixed any idea for a dance at Coffee Coops' at this time.

Why?

The floor of the room we planned to use is old linoleum over concrete. Apparently it's too injury-prone for dancers.

Though I'm not yet giving up, this does put a bit of a kink in our squaredance plans.

Maybe you can find a bar with a dance floor willing to experiment with hosting a monthly Monday or Tuesday night dance. Those are a lot of fun if you can get the ball rolling. Here's a couple videos from Seattle and Bloomington:

The dancers should toughen up i feel. Whats a few injuries among friends for a common but worthy cause. This way the dancers would become the entertainment for the muso's an unusal twist on things don't you think :)

Better than being floored by a Flummoxer.

Injuries lead to lawsuits plus it would be irresponsible to be aware of the possibilities and let it go forward. A wooden floor is called for! Just a wooden floor.

Money will be found for a wooden floor. It will just take more time.

Come to Glenville today and see how their outside dance floor is constructed, heavy but brilliant and economical and large (24 x 60 feet). Maybe I'll take some pictures of it this year.

Just checked. You can see the assembly of the dance floor from home.

A dance floor is in the future, but maybe not the NEAR future. Since the coffee house annex is leased to the coffee house owner's non-profit art and music organization, we're going to try for some grant money for this. And that always takes time.
