HELL YEAH!!! Definitely go! It sound like a blast and it could be a lot of fun. Find out what the venue is and how long this way you can pace yourself beforehand and get the most out of it. I wish I could tell you how to prepare.. I'll give it some thought and get back to you.. That's so awesome. I hope it's a fabulous time for you!! {{{Hugs}}} 💕🙏🏻💕

Set realistic expectations for the evening. Ensure minimal stress on that day. Go love and laugh. Each moment is a precious gift... Fun times

Newfibrogirl, yes you should go. Try to stay as relaxed and stressed free several days ahead of time. Rest well the day before. As AlwayZ and HopefulHumanMargs said, pace yourself, set realistic goals, rest between dances, or skip every other one, etc. Wear comfortable shoes... A must, as well as a comfortable dress, nothing you'll be tugging and pulling at all night. I hope you have a very enjoyable time! 🙏🌼

Yes go... is it possible to visit the location before hand? Maybe case out quiet places to rest I know when I need a moment I don't like feeling as if people are watching. Also some places have a lounge in the restroom with a sofa and comfortable chairs. Rest before doing to much. Stay calm in the days before I know i stress myself out before doing stuff and end up making myself sick and unable to do what I wanted to do
