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!

    Ask Joey if he will talk to William for you, to find out what is going on. Say to him "Hey, can you ask William if I went to far with him because if I did tell him that I am sorry, I did not mean to?" That is all of the advice that I can give you for now talk to me if you need anything else.

    Yep, being yourself is very important especially with friends. Though remember you're going to have different attitudes towards different people, and that doesn't mean you're fake.

    You should speak to them, say " I heard you when you two had your fight  and I heard every word, I need to know what is happening between you guys". That will let them no that you are worried about them. They will probably say " That is none of your concern" or "We are discussing it". You should then say "I am part of this family to and I deserve to know" or "You two need to talk about it right here then, because I need to know what is happening right now". That is the best advice that I can give you.
