    Vegas

    Club night Vegas is coming to Aberdeen next month. Already a massive success in Glasgow and Edinburgh, I wonder if anyone can give me an idea of what to expect.

    Do many of you cerocers out there make this a regular date in your diary? All feedback welcome!

    Never been myself, but some friends went along to Vegas at the Renfrew Ferry and they had a great time. It does help if you wear the appropriate gear, however

    There is a website full of pictures by the Vegas people at

    http://www.ren-com.com/vegas/viprooom.htm

    That should give you some idea of the dress code, if nothing else...

    Hi Amanda,

    I went to the last Vegas night at the Renfrew and had an absolutely fantastic time. Basically it's an excuse to dress up: Vegas show girl, glam, posh frock, whatever, just take a feather boa. For the guys it's more the Frank Sinatra or Elvis look. At the ferry there's not much space to dance (and the floor's not good) but there was a bit of swing/ceroc going on. The rest of the dancing is the usual two-step shuffle accompanied by singing your heart out to 40s and 50s swing. Fantastic night guaranteed!

    I'm away for the next one in Glasgow (2nd May) but should kicking about for the one after (25th May) if there are any cerocers in the area and are looking for a dance partner....

    Hope this is of use!

    Have fun and don't forget your boa!

    Jayne

    VEGAS NIGHT!!!

    VEGAS NIGHT!

    Glasgow Saturday 25th May

    WHO'S COMING???

    Hi all,

    Anyone up for coming out to play on Saturday night at the Renfrew Ferry Vegas Night?

    Last time I went we had a GREAT time and the only thing missing out of my evening was the occasional "proper" dance to break up the "two-step shuffle". Anyone fancy it?

    If you're someone who likes to ceroc all night then be warned that there isn't a huge amount of dance floor space, but there's enough for the odd dance!

    If you want more information the Vegas website is: http://www.vegasscotland.co.uk/

    It starts at 9:30 and you're best turning up before 10:30 to get in (although tickets can be bought in advance - see the website). Tickets are £8.

    If anyone's up for it I'll go and buy some shoes that I can ceroc in (suede soles on beer not a good idea; alcohol + 3" heels + dancing also not a good idea..)

    Go on, plan your next weekend on Monday!

    Jayne

    Yes, I agree with you John, great night.
    I managed to join in the fun after the Aberdeen party last Saturday, and had a brilliant time. It reminded me of the Saturday night before the Champs in London.
    Even though half the music was not "really" cerocable, it added to the fun, as I managed (for the first time ever I think) to Ceroc to what was clearly a Waltz beat...

    I was surprised that the night was not that busy, all the better for Cerocers to take over, and judging by their drunken attempts, a lot of "non-cerocers" (Muggles?) where keen to try partner dancing. I wonder how many will turn up over the next few weeks.

    Shame the next Glasgow Vegas night clashes with Edinburgh's party night with the Team Cabaret display though

    Excellent! I have to admit, we did look good
    They could not give free tickets fast enough to most Cerocers, so I suppose they want us back.

    Vegas was cool. Especially when you get to escort 5 babes and Holly Golightly...

    Anyway Franck, just wanted to post to say that I think dancing with a hat is a doddle! Never lost it once, even in the tunnel :p

    Ah, indeed, it is possible and sometimes even fun to dance with a hat, but the crux for me is the Comb... You are able to do the Comb, but somehow it is not the same when you have to account for the brim of the hat.

    Glad to hear you had a good time at Vegas.

    IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!

    Thanks to Stuart for keeping me dancing all night (even if I had had a few drinks... )

    It would be great to see a few more cerocers there next time - 22nd June in Glasgow, which doesn't clash with the Edinburgh party.

    'till next month,

    Hey John what exactly is a Vegas night and will you be wearing that "Zoot suit"??? I've never been to a forum/Vegas night before, is it all Cerocers or do the less enlightened get to come along as well???

    Is everyone meant to dress up Vegas style, whatever that is? Some help here please cos it sounds like a fab night.

    Cheers

    Possibly the best dance night IÕve ever had in Aberdeen
    The setting is the Vegas casinos
    The girls are dressed up and the music is fantastic
    Vegas style is what you make it
    Long dress and feather boa
    Show girl type outfit and any thing in between

    ItÕs on to three in the morning.
    Its also the Night of the Aberdeen Ceroc Party
    So you can easily go to both
    And it not filled with cerocers Yet!

    The zoot suit will have to wait a while
    As I am going thru a state of morphing
    (changing size and shape)
    but watch this space you never know

    regards

    I'm watching and waiting with baited breath!

    I could do with a bit of morphing myself so any good tips?? Take it this is positive morphing???

    Got that feather boa looked out and going to do my best to go to the July forum night. See ya there

    Vegas Update

    It's that time again folks!!!

    I received an e-mail this morning reminding me that Vegas is on in Aberdeen on 15th June at the Forum. It also said that there would be a prize for the best dancers. (I don't think they realise what they've let themselves in for!!!) So get your dancing shoes on and feather boas at the ready!

    For anyone living down Glasgow way, our next night is NEXT WEEK (22nd June, Renfrew Ferry). I'm definitely going (the outfit is a new and improved version of the last one...) and I'm looking for some people to dance with! Anyone fancy it?

    And for those over in Edinburgh your next night is the week after that, 29th June at Ego.

    If anyone wants more info and a look at the photos the Vegas site is www.vegasscotland.co.uk.

    Hope you have a great time - I'm looking forward to it already! (and yes, I do have a life but I'm still looking forward to it!!)

    Enjoy!!

    Jayne
