School Dances

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!
