There ain't no party like an S Club party (allegedly)

The 90s pop reunion avalanche continues with news that S Club is coming our way, along with Big Brovas. We're still not 100% convinced that there's genuinely no party like an S Club party – and we're yet to see their data on the subject despite their repeated exhortations that they're "gonna show [us] how".
From what we've been able to surmise from the lyrics, the following criteria would have to be met for something to be a legitimate S Club party:
It must take place on a Friday night
A significant amount of both movin' and groovin' would be involved
The venue would have a low enough roof that one could "push the ceiling", and
Despite this dangerously claustrophobic environment, hands would need to be raised in the air as though the participants were broadly indifferent.
While all of these qualities are measurable in principle, until this undergoes proper peer review Time Out can confirm only that there are few, if any, parties qualitatively similar to an S Club party, according to all statistically significant available metrics.
We do, however, totally wanna see Rachel do her thing.
(Note: it's not yet entirely clear whether this is a full reunion or the "S-Club 3" version that's been doing UK shows since 2008, consisting of Paul Cattermole, Bradley McIntosh and Jo O'Meara. So maybe Rachel won't be doing her thing after all.)
