Dance, Dragon, Dance!

Welcome to the Year of the Dragon Dance Party! Thursday at 9PM at the Marriott Imperial Ballroom, the first dance party of con weekend started. As guests entered, the music was already pumping in the dimly lit room. The tables were decked out in dragon themed decor. Even small dragons were placed on the tables for guests to have a memento of the night.

At first, no one seemed to want to be first on the dance floor. Then, the “right” music came on and people started dancing the night away. If you didn’t want to dance, people watching was just as entertaining. It’s Dragon Con. Have the time of your life.

DJP was the DJ for the evening, an eternal veteran of Dragon Con and native of Atlanta. His playlist had a variety of music, from Backstreet Boys to Lady Gaga, that was non-stop fun for all attendees.

Of course, there will be other dances this weekend, but this was the first. What a fantastic way to start the weekend!
