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!

    Anything that's done repeatedly that bothers you after you've told them to stop is considered as bullying, which is almost a crime and has serious consequences. I'd tell someone if I were you. Doing it once is okay, but doing it more than once after being asked to stop is serious. and also, if you're smart then don't ever complain. Smartness will get you a good future, being cool won't

    But if they make you feel like #### then you shouldn't be friends with these people. If it really bothers you then it's a toxic relationship. If you just find in mildly annoying and can deal with it then continue being friends with them. But if it really bothers you and they won't stop even when you ask them to stop then they're not your real friends. You deserve friends that respect you.
