    * Nashville Convention Center and Renaissance Nashville Hotel -- Nashville, TN, USA
    * MTAC is an official sponsor of para˛mahou, and is our "home" convention, and it's a must-go-to if you are a fan of ParaPara! For the TENTH year in a row, MTAC is providing ParaPara and eurobeat fans with a ton of events for the ParaPara and eurobeat crowd, and para˛mahou is hosting it all as featured presenters. We've also been given an exhibitor table and stage where we'll be giving lessons, performances, and FREE SWAG all weekend long! Even better still, DJ Initial P of Disko Warp Music is a Guest of Honor at MTAC Devil's Dozen, and will be making appearances at all of our scheduled events -- as will MTAC's super-sexy mascot, ConKitty™!

    Performances, Panels and Events (All events are subject to change)
    * What Is ParaPara? ~A Beginner's Guide to ParaPara and Eurobeat Music~ -- FRIDAY
    Are you curious about what all of this "ParaPara" stuff truly is? Join us as we provide a comprehensive introduction to ParaPara dancing: from its origins in the night clubs of Japan, to its impact on Japanese culture, fashion, video games, and of course, anime. MTAC Special Guest DJ Initial P will be joining in, too, providing insight on eurobeat and hyper techno -- the music genres most associated with the ParaPara phenomenon. If you're interested in getting into ParaPara, or simply have a passion for dance music, this panel is a perfect way to get started!

    * ParaPara Dance Lesson (Beginner) -- FRIDAY
    Do you love to dance? Are you a fan of upbeat music? Are you in love with Japanese pop culture? Then ParaPara dancing is for you! Join dance us as we teach a beginner-level ParaPara routine, step-by-step. The choreography will be a para˛mahou original routine to WEREWOLF BOYFRIEND (AKBK "DJ COMMAND" REMIX) / FRIGHT RANGER, a catchy eurobeat track produced by MTAC Special Guest, DJ Initial P -- and who knows -- maybe you'll be able to bust out your sweet new moves when he plays live at the rave on Saturday night! If you've ever wanted to get in on the ParaPara dance craze, or if you're an experienced arm-waving veteran, this year's ParaPara lesson is one that you can't afford to miss!

    * ParaPara Power Hour ~para˛mahou 10th Anniversary Extended Edition~ -- FRIDAY
    Inspired by events held in the night clubs of Japan, the ParaPara Power Hour features elaborate performances and exhibitions by ParaPara dance teams from across the state of Tennessee. Once all of the teams have performed, the REAL party begins as we play a non-stop mega-mix of eurobeat and hyper techno songs featured in the past lessons, events, and performances of team para˛mahou to celebrate their 10th anniversary as Nashville's premier ParaPara dance team! Dancers of ALL skill levels are welcome, and whether you're wanting to shake your money-maker or just watch and see what this "ParaPara" stuff is all about, join us and experience the Japanese pop culture phenomenon of ParaPara like never before!

    * TechPara Dance Lesson (Intermediate) -- SATURDAY
    TechPara is a more technical, techno-based style of Japanese ParaPara dancing, and this lesson is a great chance to learn! Set to more "hardcore", rave-inspired music than the typical eurobeat that ParaPara is danced to, as well as featuring more elaborate moves, TechPara is considered to be more fun to dance by many, as it is an advanced form of ParaPara. Join team Para˛Mahou as they teach an intermediate-level TechPara routine, step-by-step, making sure that beginners and veterans alike will be able to perfect their moves. Don't be intimidated if you're new to TechPara or ParaPara dancing, as the routine will be taught in such a way that absolutely everyone will be able to learn. If you've ever wanted to get in on the ParaPara (and TechPara) dance craze, or are a huge fan of techno music, make sure that you don't miss this lesson!

    * para˛mahou 10th Anniversary Special Performance XI -- SATURDAY @Cosplay Contest

    * MTAC ParaPara Battle -- SATURDAY (~1st Stage~) & SUNDAY (~2nd Stage~)
    Do you think you have what it takes to be the ultimate ParaPara champion of MTAC? This tournament has been held annually since 2006, and the competition will be as fierce as ever: pitting ParaPara and TechPara dancers against one another for the chance to take home the title in 2013 -- as well as several awesome prizes! Even audience members can win some sweet swag by participating in challenges, and the battle itself has been arranged so that whether you're a novice or a veteran, you'll have an equal opportunity to call yourself the ParaPara Battle champion! Don't worry if you don't know any routines; you can challenge someone else to dance, instead! You MUST participate BOTH rounds in order to be eligible to win the prizes after the 2nd Stage, so make sure to attend if you plan to win it all! Make sure to visit the MTAC ParaPara Battle page for all of the details, and our Twitter for special hints that might give you a slight edge in the tournament!

    Exhibit Hall hours are still to be determined. Please keep in mind that we won't always be at our booth at all times. Please follow us to know when we're holding impromptu lessons, exhibitions, and packing things up, each day of the convention.


    AkaiCon
    * October 11 - 13, 2013
    * Clarion Inn -- Murfreesboro, TN, USA
    * It's AkaiCon's debut year as an anime convention, and they have invited para˛mahou as a Guest of Honor! We are both honored and thrilled to take part of this brand-new anime convention, and honestly, who can resist a convention with a RED PANDA for a mascot? Mi~Ke's adoration for red pandas will be annoyingly apparent all weekend long as our team teaches ParaPara lessons and gives AkaiCon attendees a special ParaPara performance. We can't wait to see everyone there!
