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!

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumours spread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
