Teen Dance Party

Guest Author - Kristi A Larson

Music and teens are a timeless combination. Parties and teens are a timeless combination. So what better way to ensure success than to plan a Teen Dance Party?! With a little planning and effort, you can create an amazing setting that will have people talking for weeks, even months!

In creating the perfect dance party, it's all about the atmosphere! You need to have plenty of space for guests to dance, as well as space for them to relax or cool down between songs. You may need to move furniture out of a room, or consider using a yard or garage. Once you have the space designated, it's time for the lighting.

My theory on lighting is that if you pick one main color, especially red, and center your lighting around that, you've got a great start!

Purchase red light bulbs and change out most of the white ones in the space. You may not wish to change all of them out however, depending on your preference for light in the area. You should also either purchase or rent a party light kit,
icon consisting of a mirrored ball and colored spotlight. You could really add to the effect with a bubble or fog machine,
icon which can also be purchased or rented. Add alot of white Christmas lights wrapped around posts and gathered in vases. You can bring it up a notch by wrapping red cellophane around the posts on top of the white lights.

Create a seating area near where you set up the refreshments. At a dance party, the most important refreshments are the beverages. You can serve soda, juice, even water, but in keeping with theme, you should set up a long table or portable bar. Seating can be benches, chairs, bean bags, anything really.

And of course, to be a great dance, you have to have great music! If you have a large budget, consider hiring a DJ, who will often have great lighting as well. If your budget is too small, then there is nothing wrong with either investing in a few really great CD's or borrowing them from your friends.

Dance parties are so much fun, and will a little time and effort, yours will be the talk of the town!
