About Us

Slow Dance Social is an ongoing series of events that are all-welcoming platforms for the powerful and positive effects of intimacy and platonic connections, produced by Ryan Camilieri and Miriam Fathalla.

A sweet and smart response to the pressures of modern life, Slow Dance Social is an old-fashioned tradition with a modern twist; a non-heteronormative dance-card driven slow dance soiree and fundraising event.

We aim to combat depression, anxiety and social isolation by hosting events that are platforms for intimacy, connection and the healing power of human touch and shared movement, In addition to these remarkable physical benefits, the events raise money for groups and charities that provide services and support for people who struggles with these issues (which is most of us, from time to time).

In an age where physical contact is a scarce commodity, the event brings strangers safely together with all the romance and charming awkwardness of a high school dance without the angst and paranoia- it's high school with a happy ending!

Complete with dance cards, disco balls and a dance lesson, fabulous and inspired attire, while desired, is (regretfully) not required.

Finally, you do not have to be queer to attend this party, but you must have an open mind, an open heart and open arms.
