Posted: I'm not sure if this is the right bit, if it's wrong please mr moderator move it somewhere.
Anyway, I'm getting married next year on July 4th, and I'm wanting to have some people doing a short performance at the end of the night. I've been told that I'm not allowed to do it myself that day! We're basically looking for a small group of 2 or more people, who do an actual performance of some kind, rather than just a bunch of people who spin. Fire would be cool, it'll be probably about 10/10.30pm, so dark enough for fire, I'm not sure about glow, probably just about dark enough for glow. It'll be outdoors on an island in the Thames in Twickenham, cos my girlfriend grew up there. Are you or do you know someone who does this sort of thing? If you are, post up on here, or pm me, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org . It'd be cool if you've got a video of the type of performance you do so we can see it.

Posted: I'd be well up for that except that (as yet) i am a solo swinger but i suggest that you get a large enough group of solos (not too small but then not too big; probs about 5-6 peeps) then get them together and choreograph them or get them to choreograph themselves. That way you will be helping bring together solos from the community. Also the performance will be better (i think) as the performers will want to be there and will not just be there to get money or what ever which is what the atitude will be like in groups wheras solos will enjoy it more as it will be a one-off and something special and so they will put their all into it.
Posted: okay. really sorry for all u who miss understood what i was trying to say. I'm sure group performers are great but i think it would be good to get singular people involved in group stuff. Really sorry if i offended or mislead any of you. I will be more concious of any future messages that I post. good luckon the wedding. I'm sure that whoever you pick to perform will be great and your guests will be completely enchanted. Ithink its a great idea no-matter what you do. Really sorry again.
Posted: But your post makes little sense and you have to admit is pretty insulting to any of us people who perform in groups... I don't like disecting posts but...
"...except that (as yet) i am a solo swinger..." which implies you want to join/form a group - which is exactly what all of us who are in groups started as.
"...get a large enough group of solos then get them together and choreograph them or get them to choreograph themselves" - or, as choreographing takes a lot of time, get a group which has already spent hours choreographing their shows.
"Also the performance will be better (i think) as the performers will want to be there and will not just be there to get money or what ever which is what the atitude will be like in groups" - C'mon - could you be more insulting?! I love spinning, that's why I wanted to make it my profession. Some people on these boards are full-time spinners, so you're actually denying people a way of making a living by saying things like this Plus -the show wouldn't be as good, as safe, as polished or as complete.
"but i think it would be good to get singular people involved in group stuff" - Then they'd be a group, just not a very good one.
Ok, I'll stop now, as I could go on (and on, and on) but you've said you're sorry.
However, I'm still unsure as to how we've mis-understood you. It wasn't like your first post was ambiguous.
