The Global Online Social
March 19, 2020 @ 19:00 - 23:00
I thought it would be fun to get a bunch of dancers together to dance and socialize remotely. Next Thursday I’ll be broadcasting music on my discord server and twitch channel and I’d like to invite as many dancer’s as possible to a video conference to dance and socialize with us.
Each week we will start the social out with a guided practice with a featured dance teacher. While this practice is free, any twitch subscriptions, tips, or purchases made during the lesson (or right after) will be forwarded to the teacher.
The social dance will be DJ’d remotely by some of the finest DJ’s from around the world and we won’t stop playing music until everyone’s done dancing!
I suggest staying home, moving the sofa over and keeping groups limited to two or four people. Or dance solo, that’s cool too!

What you need:
This will probably be easiest with two devices like a phone+computer or phone+phone. One to play the music and one to video conference.
EDIT: After testing zoom today we’ve eliminated the need for multiple devices. We will be able to broadcast music through zoom. If you’d like to have an additional device set up to tune in to twitch the viewership really helps my broadcast get in front of more non-dancers and helps out my channel.
If we meet maximum capacity on zoom (100 users) twitch will act as an overflow as that does not have a limit. If you are not currently dancing or interacting via your webcam, I ask that you watch on twitch and make room for more users if we are having capacity issues.
At the start of the event join the video conference call here:

Let me know if you have suggestions! I want this to be community driven and a little relief for our social dance needs. – Paul
