How To Plan A Summer Dance Party


 


Invites: Send Invitations At The Earliest


It is quite possible that people plan for the summer holidays well ahead of time. In order to avoid the cancellations, invitations should be sent at the earliest.


 


Venue: Choose The Right Location


 


Even though it is advisable to have a dance party in one of the rooms within your house, being summer, you can even transform your backyard into a great dance party venue. A local community center, a nearby park, or school gyms are also ideal locations.


 


Decor: Choose Simple, Yet Elegant Decorations


Keep it simple. Choose a mixture of pastel and bright shades. Balloons, steamers, multi-hued lights, decorative party crowns, flowers, or anything which you feel will add to the elegance of the party can be used as decorations. If you are planning a themed summer dance party, then choose the decorations in sync with the theme.


 


Keep A Wide Assortment Of Foods At Summer Dance PartyFood And More: Keep A Wide Assortment Of Foods & Drinks


Finger foods and drinks form the life and zeal of a dance party. Keep a good collection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian finger foods. Bite-sized chicken nuggets, sliced spring rolls, crackers, tacos, nachos, few dips, chips etc, form good choices. You can also keep some freshly sliced veggies and fruits, honey oat cookies, hermits, sliced honey cakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries etc for sweet treats. Right from water to chilled beer, cocktails to fresh fruit and fizzy drinks, you have to keep all the drinks handy. Keep everything handy along with plates, tissues, napkins, and glasses.


 


Entertainment: Choose A Blend Of Music


Make a playlist for the dance party to avoid sticking to the same genre of music. Choose from the best from the timeless tracks of the 70s, 80s, 90s and so on. The cue is to keep the people hooked to the party without getting bored. It is advisable to rent a DJ or a live music band to play the music, in case you are not able to finalize the assorted music by yourself. Start playing the music even before people start pouring to create the ambience.


 


 


The stage is now set for the show. Enliven your holidays with a summer dance party and have a blast!

A dance party should have a good dance floor! and lots and lots of beer and drinks, not necessarily alcoholic ones!

I disagree with the Anonymous user and The Hungry Soul! I have been dancing for 4 years, so I have experience in throwing a dance party. 1)Most importantly, have lot of water to be served. 2)Minimize alcohol. Alcohol makes dancers lose balance easily. 3) Keep the food light and refreshing. Oily and rich food will cause burps, barfs and farts while dancing.
