Synchronised Shuffling Party Rocks the AGRIA's
The atmosphere set with a post awards ceremony pretend dance-off was nothing short of euphoric. It all started with Ben Reeves from the AAGE, Matt Chaplin from OneTest, Josh Mackenzie from Development Beyond Learning and Mike Casey and Dave Jenkins from GradConnection, who appeared to be in the running for a "special award" which required them to have a dance off to decide the winner.
After various attempts at shall we say.. "mediocre" level dance moves, the boys broke out into synchronised shuffling mid way through LMFAO's Party Rock anthem and had the audience cheering for more. The performance was followed by a large glass of champagne and a flood of fellow party rockers joining the dance floor for the next couple of hours.
Not so coincidently, the after party did rock
Following on from the dance floor in the Ball Room, partiers were handed green glow sticks and instructed to go with the glowing green flow down stairs to Marble Bar at the Hilton, decked out with GradConnection coloured glow lamps and a bar full of Appletini's. After a few more hours of shuffling attempts and exhausting the bar staff of all the free alcohol they could, a few party animals headed on to the After After Party at Echo Point Karaoke Lounge to showcase their singing talents (or not) to eachother. After a few too many microphone hogging battles, the party rockers headed home to rest up for the final day of the conference and exchange stories from the night before..
For those of you who missed it, here's the "Dance-Off"
