Re: Floor space per set?
We reckon the minimum reasonable space you need for a rectangular set is 3.6 metres x 5.2 metres (18.72 m2 per set). However 25 m2 per set feels more comfortable, and the shape of the room is an important factor! We've booked 150 m2 for 6 sets for our Beginners' Weekend in September. For the 2005 Iberian Weekend in Lisbon, we had between 18 and 20 sets in about 420 m2, and we felt this was acceptable (21.00 - 23.33 m2 per set). If you want to convert these measures into feet and inches, you might find the following site useful http://www.onlineconversion.com/ Incidentally, there are still a limited number of places left for our Beginners' Weekend (not just for beginners!).

To: "SCD news and discussion" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Message-ID: <email@example.com> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed I'm calling around to various dance studios and other facilities to see if some of them have reasonably priced sprung wood floors (please, no laughter), and I'm trying to get a guess for about how many sets can fit in different sized rooms. I have some intuitive ideas about how much space a set occupies, but I'm not sure I can convert them into numbers. So does anyone have any guidelines for how much space you need for a set in SCD (or for different numbers of sets)? Thanks, Keith Graham Atlanta, GA, USA firstname.lastname@example.org
