Guests are shy when it’s bright.

3. React to the crowd.

Always strike the balance of what you love with what your guests like. A great DJ will do that for you and your guests.

Who doesn’t want a dance party? Your wedding dance party should make everyone’s night a memory to behold. Dance parties make every event better and they work as a great time to bring events to the next level.

If you’re not sure how to elevate your event by having the ultimate dance party, we can help. Here are 7 tips for a dope dance party that nobody will ever forget.

1. Have the right sized dance floor

One thing to remember when having a dance party is you don’t need a big dance floor. In most situations, people tend to overpay for a big dance floor, thinking that they need a wider, more open space to accommodate their guests. The truth is that smaller floor spaces can do the job.

At any given party, you can always expect about half of your guests to dance at one point. A smaller dance floor can keep everyone close and make the dance floor seem fuller.

2. Make The Venue Dark

Some people don’t think making the dance floor darker is a good idea, especially if it’s a wedding. Then again, there isn’t a dance club in the world flooded with bright white lights. If you can, it’s best to dim the lights down, make them darker, or work towards better mood lighting.

Lighting affects how a venue looks and when it comes to a dance party, you want the floor to be fun but dark in some areas at the same time. A bit of darkness makes people feel bolder and more anonymous, which can encourage them to do some mean dance moves.

Use dim lights and colored lights to illuminate the dance floor while keeping other areas of the venue dark.

3. Add Some Dope Party Lights

As we noted before, lighting changes a lot of things on a dance floor. If you’re looking to step up the general lighting around the dance floor venue, dance party lights can give you what you want.

Dance party lights project different kinds of colors, shapes, and designs all the dance floor. These dance party lights will give a club-like vibe that encourages energy on the dance floor.

4. Find A Professional DJ That Can Play A Crowd

A dance party is never complete without a DJ. The DJ is the life of the party and a good DJ controls the energy of the crowd.

Hire a DJ that you can discuss what type of music you want for your party. At Bring On The Bash we entertain guests with the couples favorite music. Meanwhile making the best out of your DJ’s expertise to mix tracks seamlessly and blend music on the fly.

When hiring a DJ, make sure that they know how to read a room. You want someone who doesn’t make the venue about themselves but is confident enough in how they mix music. Hire a DJ who can amplify the mood and help with the longevity of your event.

5. Don’t Interrupt The Party

Once the dance party starts, do not stop until it ends. Never interrupt a dance party for anything other than an important announcement. The problem comes from the need to control a crowd’s energy and how hard it is to build.

In every event, your visitors only have a set amount of energy they can put into something. Building energy for a dance party takes a lot of time and effort on the part of the DJ and organizers like you. Interrupting the dance party with another event can dissipate that energy!

Once the dance event is interrupted, it’s hard to get the ball rolling again. If you want a good dance party, then you need to make sure that it keeps going until you finish the time you allotted for it.

6. Limit The Dance Party to about 2.5 Hours

Most couples want a dance party that will be talked about for years to come but don’t know how long it should be.

Some put the dancing to around 1 to 1.5 hours, which isn’t enough time for your DJ to learn your crowd and build momentum. Others have the dance party run for 3 to 4 hours, which is too long and guests get too tired to dance.

If you want to have a dance party, aim for a good length that’s not too short and not too long. 2.0-2.5 hours is long enough for your DJ to learn the crowd but not leave guests too tired to dance.

7. Get Some Flip-Flops Ready

Here’s one simple dance party tip that not a lot of people think is too big but it can help make everything easier for you: flip flops. For formal events like weddings, most women will likely wear heels. These will be uncomfortable to wear and dance into, which discourages half the population of the party.

Having flip-flops on standby can make it easy for women to dance. Rather than have them go barefoot, some flip flops are an easy, comfy way to keep the girls dancing. More girls dancing on the dance floor means the party can keep going!

Final Thoughts

Having a dope dance party is a matter of setting the mood and keeping the energy up. If you can sustain everyone’s energy while hearing your favorite music, nice mood lighting, and an incredible DJ, you’ll create a night everyone will remember.

Brett & Taylor wanted a mix of pop and indie ranging from the 90’s through today. Here are their playlists that were played during their September wedding at Melhorn Manor. With these playlists we really settle into the music that the two of them love!

October 5, 2021

Here are two different takes on music for cocktail hour. Both of them have some similarities in the music they liked. But the majority of the songs are different. The one big thing that both of these playlists have is that they are very upbeat! The songs are full of energy but aren’t necessarily dance songs (with a few exceptions).

Ivrie is a fan of classic rock, alternative and pop. While Casey like’s a wider variety of pop and with a dash of alternative thrown in there.
