Where Dating and Play Connect!
What is this?
PLAYdating celebrates dating by connecting singles in a PLAYFUL way using ART, HUMOR, MOVEMENT and IMAGINATION.
Why is this better than a traditional “singles” event?
As opposed to traditional “singles” events where there is pressure to impress, we encourage people to laugh, have fun and connect with each other through PLAY, which opens us up to be genuine in a safe space. You will experience an interactive, fun night where participants have the opportunity to bond with others using healthy communication skills.
How does this work?
We’ll start by going over ground rules, intentions for the event, how to opt out of any activities, who to talk to if you’re feeling out of your comfort zone, etc. Following that, we’ll move into playful activities led by a professionnal drama therapist that will help attendees open up to each other for the rest of the evening. We will conclude with a mixer as well as a playful way for connecting with people after the event.
What is the age range?
This will be open to adults 21 and over!
Is there alcohol at the event?
There will not be any alcohol at the event.
How long is the event?
We will be playing from 7pm to 10pm (3 hours!) Please note, the evening offically begins at 7pm. Please arrive no later than 7:20pm as door will close at that point.
How many people will be participating?
The event is capped at 20 men and 20 women. All efforts will be made to acheive a gender balance.
What if I’m shy?
There will be three facilitators at the event who will encourage everyone to participate at their own comfort level. If there is something you are not comfortable with, you can modify your participation or opt out.
Is this open to people who are LGBTQ+?
While this current event is geared towards cis men-seeking-women and cis women-seeking-men, we plan on having a Queer version in the future!
How will I connect with people after the event?
Everyone will get “Relation-Chips” and “Friend-Chips” at the beginning of the event which will be used to indicate interest in friendship or a romantic connection. After the event, you will be given contact information of the people who expressed interest and you will take it from there.
