6PM-7PM Workshop: Bellydancing. Why Are You Dragging My Butt Into This?

It's called 'belly dance; what does my butt have to do with it? A focus on that big group of muscles that is our backside, and why using that group is so important.

9PM-? Bardic Circle

Join us for an open sharing circle of music, poetry, story and song. At other conventions, this might be called a "filk sing", but here at Chessiecon, we like to be a little different. Depending on the mood of the circle, it might be a "strict bardic" -- or it might be substantially more chaotic.

Saturday

1PM-2PM Jam Workshop, leading into the Instrumental Jam

Join us for an informal short workshop on how to participate in a jam. This workshop will be followed by...a jam!
