Global Dance Family! As we look forward to the 16th anniversary of Global Dance Festival, we want to give you a list of helpful tips and reminders to keep you going all weekend long and to keep everyone as safe as possible.
1. Drink LOTS of water. Two days of dancing is a lot of strenuous exercise, and at a higher altitude you require even more water than you normally would, especially if you’re from out of state! The festival is outside in the summer sun so staying hydrated will keep you going from start to finish! Free water refill stations are available on the GDF grounds. See the map for details.
2. While you should prepare for heat, Colorado weather is unpredictable. Make sure to bring clothes or back-up items that can withstand rain or any other weather changes that may occur.
3. Eat well before the show! You’ll probably be so excited that food will be the last thing on your mind; but food is fuel, and a properly fueled body will result in greater stamina for dancing over the course of the weekend. Eating a hearty meal and snacking on some fruit before you enter is your best bet for going 100% all weekend long. Don’t forget to stop by the food trucks to refuel while you dance!
4. Wear comfortable shoes. The GDF grounds have expanded once again, and you’ll need appropriate footwear to explore all there is to see. Wear insoles or your most comfortable shoes to ensure that your feet are happy as you dance your way through the weekend.
5. Look out for each other! This scene was founded with the principles of Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect. If you see someone that looks like they’re having a hard time, get them some water and medical attention. Don’t be worried about getting in trouble, Colorado’s Good Samaritan law exempts anyone helping someone get medical attention from ANY liability.
Don’t forget: you need to Eat & Sleep if you want to Rave & Repeat!
We can’t wait to see you all dancing and grooving at Global Dance Festival 2018!
