Spot-On meets Barre!

Spot-On meets Barre!

*Did you know you can merge technology of the Barre Hud with your Spot On Choreography Mover?

Say you are doing a group performance with two groups: Group 1
(3 girls) & Group 2 (2 guys).

Here are the steps to add the Barre Inviter script to your Spot-On Mover pads.

I. Rez a Group Barre Inviter poseball & remove the script

-Rez a Group Barre Inviter poseball from your Barre hud or from the Barre Pose Ball Pak for 3.03G included with the hud package contents folder

<===In the picture I rezzed a Group 1 - Barre PoseBall V3.03

Note: it does not matter what group number poseball you choose to rez.

- Right click & open the ball then drag the script (Barre_Invite 1.1 30.01g) from the ball to your inventory Scripts folder

- You can delete the ball or take it back into your inventory (the ball is copy modify)

II. Rez your Spot On Mover pads & transfer the Barre Inviter script

- Rez your Spot On Choreography Mover circles (default - purple color) containing your "pre-designed" Movement Card.

  - Right click and open the mover pad. 

- Transfer the script (Barre_Invite 1.1 30.01g) from your inventory into each Spot On Mover pad
-Go to the General tab in the edit menu and write the Group # ONLY (ex/ 1 or 2) in the description area (you should only see the group # when finished)
Tip: I recolor my pads for the different groups to make it easy to distinguish who sits where. As shown in the picture...girls are in Group#1 so they are colored pink; guys are in Group #2 so they are colored blue.

III. Ask your posers/dancers to sit & accept invite

- The Spot On Mover pads will now invite the dancer to their assigned groups when they sit

- Start the groups sequence on your Barre Hud & hit the Play button on your Spot On Hud (or if you have already added the chat commands to your groups sequence nc, you can just hit start on your Barre Hud. Full details on how to do that are located here:, at the very bottom under Optional and Advanced Features - Using your System with a Dance Hud)

DANCE move DANCE...and have fun! woot \o/

Happy dancing!  Send me links to your videos or other good ones that you find. Thanks for reading!


To new dance sequences...and beyond! *Cheers*

Hi DQ members! *taps the mic nervously...yikes, feed-back* lol >.<

I am the new sequence manager...and I hope to NOT let you all down. :)

I have some ideas for collecting new dance sequences (mainly from the group at large), very open to everyone's participation and/or feedback about them.

I. New Quarterly SL DQ Dance Event - "So you Think you Can Choreo?"...
- This event will be similar to the previous "DANCE QUEENS Choreography Shows". It is a more formal process for acquiring stellar dance sequences...allowing for participation from the entire SL dance community.
 - The event will be solely centered on dance technique, inspiration, & creativity.  (no sets or emoting...costumes are optional) It will be judged by a group of experienced dance peers & leaders.
- "Optimistically" anticipating a large group of members wanting to we will have to isolate only a select few for actual posting on the DQ blog, based on a fair judging system. There will not be a single winner, but several winners (actual # TBD - based on available prizes, judges, etc). Everyone and anyone will have a fair chance at winning. The winners must agree to have their sequences posted on the DQ blog (along with pictures or video) to share with the SL dance community.
 - I plan to reach out to heads of various dance troupes registered with DQ very soon to gather a list of potential "recommended" rotating judges for this talent event. They will be chosen based on experience and availability for judging events.
 - I have already reached out to most of the major SL dance animation stores for assistance in supporting this event. So far I am getting very positive feedback. (Thank you!)

II. On continuing Nottoo's regular "informal" postings of dance sequences...
- DQ members, as you well know...our Nottoo was a "superwoman"...and Marissa, well...she is more human than super. *LOL* As of today, Nottoo has collected 432 dance sequences in total. (WOW WOW WOW)
- I will need your help to continue this Dance Queens tradition. If you have sequences you wish to share with the group, please send them to me via nc with corresponding pics or video. (Thank you in advance)

III. Whats new & HOT in SL Dance....
- I look forward to getting news on the latest dance animations, tools, and equipment to you asap.
- I would ask the Animation store owners to please be in contact with me if you need your information posted to the DQ blog. I am in majority of your groups, but due to group limitations, capped notifications, etc....I do not wish to intentionally overlook anyone. :)

 p.s. whew...first post out, takes in a deep breath. :)

Foxy Ladies - A Trip Through Time

Are you ready to go back in time?  The Foxy Ladies and Ladies Men are ready to take you on a little trip through the past!  Get ready to Charleston while saluting the sexy ladies, adore the leader of the pack...he's Hot Stuff..Soar far away while dreaming of sunny Cali.  This show is Too Legit!  YO!  See you there Wednesday, March 27, at 5pm slt!


Hey everyone!  Just a quick note to let everyone know...if you'd like your show advertised on the blog, please send a notecard to ME!  LilAngels Resident....include any publicity poster, times, dates, url's, lm's....all of it!

Thanks Everyone!

Fusion Dance Crew Presents OUTER LIMITS

OUTER LIMITS at Fusion Performing Arts Center  130325

Felicia Ibanez of Fusion Dance Crew sent the following invitation.....


Saturday, March 30, 1PM SLT @ The Fusion Performing Arts Center

Fusion Dance Crew takes you to the outer reaches of the universe where no one has danced before, we think, LOL!

Science fiction is an interesting genre, as we all have seen in movies, TV series, and of course, books. This genre communicates "truths" and "messages" about the human condition in a very entertaining way.  Fusion Dance Crew with its ability and talent of pushing the boundaries of SL dance productions created this show using stories, music, props, costumes, jaw-breaking special effects & sets, and of course, dance animations! 

Come see: Global, Starman, Avatar, Home, Robot Escape, Men In Black, Venus In the Morning, and the grand finale: Twilight Zone.

Here is your LM. Hope to see you there this Saturday.  Arrive early. Take a seat & enjoy the show.

DANCE QUEENS Restructuring - Update 3

DANCE QUEENS Restructuring - Update 3 (130317)

This is the third update note about progress in the restructuring of the DANCE QUEENS Group. The initial note, update 1, update 2 and the voting results should be read first.

We are nearing the end of the restructuring process and I am pleased that soon we will have the disagreements and drama of the last three months behind us and again we will concentrate on the fun of dancing.

Diddy Hyun, Naiki Muliaina and Zhaza Zerbino (DD, Naiki and ZZ) have been working together and have shared a bit with me of their plans. I know they have been talking with many of you and I hope you are giving them your ideas and support. They certainly have mine. I suspect that we will know more of where they are leading us once the transfer of leadership is finished on March 30.

Progress is also being made on the transfer of responsibilities to the volunteer Managers. You may have noticed that the postings to the blog over the last couple of months have been lower than the months before that. As the Managers assume their responsibilities I think you will see the postings both increase and return to the same level of valuable content that you had seen previously. Of course there will be some glitches, but please give a some leeway to the Managers as they take over the various informational areas of DANCE QUEENS and begin to put their own style and emphasis in place.

I have received quite a few really kind and heartfelt notes from DQ members. It really makes me feel so good about the Group and how so many people have been helped by DANCE QUEENS. As my time of leadership draws to a close, I am feeling some loss like my baby growing up and leaving the nest,  but it is more than balanced by the thoughtfulness of so many people and the friendships I have formed here.

As I look across SL I do not know of any other Group that has successfully been run in the way that we are setting up DANCE QUEENS. Let me rephrase that. I don't know of any group that has been run successfully or not in this way. I know in RL these types of organizations work, so I have great hopes for success here. DANCE QUEENS is all about the fun of dancing in SL. I think we all know that dancing is both broad and deep here and DQ helps make dancing more of a pleasure.

I expect one more post on March 30 on this subject and then 'the fun begins' again.

The Blonde Bond Sayin' Hi!

It took me a few days to sit down and start writing this, a plethora of ideas and thoughts going through my mind. However, tonight is a quiet night. The snow is falling in the sim I'm in and it's nice to just sit and relax, taking it all in and turning my thoughts toward a reflection of one of my two passions in Second Life.

One of my passions is photography and lord love a duck, I could go on about that for hours, but the other is dance. Gorean dance. Cabaret dance. Emoteless dance. Emotes-only dance. I love it all. I started dancing years and years ago on a pole and I will always remember that first emote. "/me shakes her ass.". Yep. I admit to a humble beginning. *laughs*

I left the stripper life behind as most of us do and pursued other interests for a few years before settling down in Gor. A chance to role play. A chance to pursue interests in a lifestyle choice I happen to love. A win/win situation. And about a year and a half ago, my then Owner told me I was to write a dance.

 I had absolutely no idea. Write a dance?!?! Uhmm.....well, what's a girl to do other than leap to action.

So the dance groups were joined, the arms outstretched in pleading motion toward others to help a girlie out. "You have to have emotes".  What sort of emotes? "You have to have animations".  Where in the world do I get those? "You have to use this kind of music" Whhhyyyyy? "You have to have so many emotes, in such and such a time limit, with such and such a message". HELP!

And finally, I had it. My first dance. First dance without the use of a stripper pole. My first animations, compliments of a trip to A&M, and my first eleven emotes of me shaking and jiggling to da music. And, despite all of the questions, the hair-tearing, the craziness.....I fell in love. And aside from a short break in May of last year, I've danced pretty much every weekend since then.

One of the interesting things about me is I am a blonde in Second Life. And boy, does the hair color match the personality. I'll get on a topic and then go to another one only to come back to the original and for me, it always ties in. My friends and audiences....well, most of the time they can follow. *chuckles*

That being said, if I happen to go off on one tangent and forget to return to the original point, please feel free to drop me an IM or notecard and ask any questions you might have.

I also open up my home to anyone who wishes to see a Gorean dance. I'll discuss a bit more in depth what a Gorean dance is to me, and a few other Gorean dancers have also put in their thoughts upon the matter, but if anyone wishes to see a Gorean dance with the music, animations, costumes, etc., I again invite you to send me an IM or a notecard and we'll find a good time to do a demonstration.

I have to thank Lilangels Resident for giving me the idea. She came to me for photography, and when she saw the announcement in Dance Queens about my becoming a columnist, she came to me and started asking questions. And I was pretty happy. A victi...erhmm..a volunteer to bounce examples and explanations off of. However, it wasn't really until I showed her a true Gorean dance that she looked at me and said "Wow. That is not something I could never do, but it was amazing!".

I disagreed with her about the "I could never do that". Gorean unique within the dance community, but it is not impossible.

However, enough rambling! Let's get down to what Gorean dance is and why in the world I call it unique. Stay tuned for my next post! *chuckles*

Until next time!

OPENING:  SUNDAY MARCH 17th 2013 at 12 noon to 3 pm SLT
Formal Attire... and please keep your scripts below 100. 


Under the direction of Elin Egoyan

Why did we never see an arts event in Second Life that combines dance with an exhibition of RL paintings, sculptures, poetry, and creations of digital art?
Well the opportunity is now here!

The Spirit Light Dance Company is a Second Life group of dancers with a really outstanding dance repertoire attended by a large audience from all over Second Life and the world. They will give a performance with the theme "The Four Elements:  Fire, Earth, Water and Air"

In collaboration with this we organized an arts exhibit with the same theme The Four Elements. Specially for that purpose, a beautiful gallery has been created to display artwork and poetry panels by SL creators using this theme. There are 4 pavilions decorated into one of the Elements in which art of 23 artists is displayed. It is great to see the work of very well known artists placed next to outstanding work of new residents who never have exhibited before. Special and not often seen in SL is that a lot of poems are also displayed next to the paintings and fractals on the walls. We can conclude that art in all it forms are connected in this special exhibition.

During this grand opening around 1 pm Caryl Meredith and Klark Harvy of the Spirit Light Dance Company will dance a duet and give an appetizer for their performance later in the week when the Spirit Light Dance Company will Perform the Four Elements in their beautiful new theater--
The Theater of Light. Then a DJ will play and all can dance or just listen to the music.

Didds, ZZ and Naiki Speak

Didds, ZZ and Naiki Speak 130308

Hi everyone!?

I for one welcome our new insect overlords.

Wait... Wrong speech thing hang on....

Roit! Here we go! Thanks everyone! Wow that’s encouraging! Didds, ZZ and I are stunned at the vote! Thank you! Order of the day. Well, your stuck with us for at least a year I reckon. What have you voted into power? :) 

We all feel there’s a few things we would like to see in DQ, and we are not sure where to start, Nottoos a hell of an act to follow so give us some time aye :) We know DQ isn’t going to be the same without Nottoo, but then really, DQ in 2013 isn’t like DQ from 2012, or 2011, and heck it certainly isn’t like the DQ of 2010 which was a free dance routine when one was submitted in notices every few days and that was it. :) So its not going to be the same going forward.

We all see Dance Queens as something that’s just there to help folk interested in SL dance. We would like to keep DQ running along those lines. Couple of things we have spoken about all seem to be along the lines of getting dancers together more. Be it with short shows with multiple groups in, or just holding a 'hi, how are ya' dance party thing at a different Dance Queens venue every other week. We have other ideas and are open to any suggestions. So I guess that’s the direction we will head in.

As for the big festivals and the cuties, well, we will see. Strikes us that everyone is terrified of running them, I guess Nottoo had big balls on that front :)

So yeah, that’s a big thank you to you all, and thats the direction we want to go in :)

Thanks gang!

Didds, ZZ, & Nai
