Planning a School Dance

Want to plan the school dance of the year, but not sure how? Then keep reading - Kidzworld is here to tell you how to plan an awesome dance!

School Dances - Getting Started

School dances are fun, but they take a lot of planning and organizing. It's not a one-person job, so ask for volunteers by posting sign-up sheets in the hallways. Once you've gathered up a dance party committee of 5-10 guys and girls, you'll need to assign each person a specific job and hold weekly meetings to get an update on the party planning.

School Dances - Picking a Theme

You don't have to be Walt Disney to create a great theme for your school dance. All you need to do is keep it fun and simple. Grab bales of hay and scarecrows for a country hoedown, jack-o-lanterns and cobwebs for a Halloween bash, or flashing bulbs and a red carpet for a Hollywood premiere party!

School Dances - Hiring a DJ

Music is one of the most important things at a dance, so you'll definitely need to blast some kickin' tunes. If you have enough money in your budget, you can hire a DJ or have a live band perform on stage, but if you're a little strapped for cash, then just play CDs from a stereo. Whichever way you go, just be sure to play different kinds of music, like alternative, hip hop and R&B, pop, rock and techno so that everyone will get a taste of their fave tracks.

School Dances - Getting Refreshed

You can have water and paper cups as the bare minimum, or arrange a huge spread of cake, pop, pastries and fruit punch. If your school budget is running low, then why not throw a fundraiser the night before the school dance? Parents and teachers may be willing to donate some money or even a big cake for such a fun cause!

    Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
