Is there anything in this world that is more fun than putting on some of your favorite music, turning the volume up as loud as you can, and dancing the night away to forget about your troubles for a while? Everyone loves a good dance party. From little kids, to young adults, to even those that are “young at heart,” you’re never too old or too young to have a good time on the dance floor.
It’s one thing to throw a dance party, but it is another thing entirely to throw a dance party that everyone remembers. If you’re getting a rave together for your child’s birthday or just feel like having a blast for no reason whatsoever, you really can’t go wrong with a great, bumping dance party.
How do you achieve that keyword, “remember?” Everyone who throws a party wants it to be one that everybody remembers, a night that people who were there will look back on fondly for years to come. To make something truly memorable, you need to put a little heart into it, to make it stand out from the rest of the events that you or your child has been to.
That sounds difficult, doesn’t it? In this day and age, how do you make something really stand out? How do you achieve that landmark feeling of creating an event that everybody in attendance is going to remember for the rest of their lives? You’d be surprised at how simple it can actually be.
If you really want to make your next dance party “pop,” you’re going to want to cover a few bases. After all, this is a party that you want people talking about for a long time, right?
If it’s a dance party or rave event that you’re hosting, there are a few special things you can take care of that are surefire hits at such parties. You don’t necessarily have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to throwing a dance party if you really want people to enjoy it and remember it.
Instead of trying to do something brand new, just make sure to throw in some of the most important rave staples.
A great location
Obviously, you can’t have a rave without a great location for plenty of people to spread out and dance. It can be hard to do this in a smaller space, depending on how many people are in attendance of the party. To really let loose, consider a wide open area like a gymnasium or a cafeteria, or even a barn.
Backyards and fields also work for people looking to provide plenty of room to host their dance parties. All kinds of room to spread out and get wild in these locations!
A great selection of music
This one should go without saying, but if you really want a smashing dance party, you need to make sure you have a great selection of music, and a great DJ! Choose a DJ who has plenty of upbeat and energetic tunes. Many kids today love dancing to electronic music genres such as house, trance, dubstep, Eurobeat, and hardstyle.
Nothing will set the mood like the soundtrack of the evening, so pay extra attention to this super important step when planning the party.
Rave toys and lights
No matter how old you are, some of the most fun you can have at a rave is with the fun assortment of toys that come along for the fun. Everything from people spinning Poi, to kids dancing with finger lights and levitation wands, and even people dancing underneath strobes and black lights. Rave toys and lights can really add a fun atmosphere to a party where the lights are turned down low.
Plus, is there really anything more fun than dancing with Poi or levitation wands?
A great sound system
This one should also be fairly obvious, but one of the most important parts of hosting a great dance party is to make sure you have a groovy sound system. Bass cannons, huge, 100 watt speakers, turntables, and subwoofers come together to deliver the ultimate in dance parties, letting the bass drop as loud as you want (or as loud as your budget can afford).
At the end of the day, throwing a fun rave is as simple as making a list of some fun items and music to include, hiring a DJ, and inviting everyone to the party. It is what everyone makes it, and to make it truly memorable, you need to get everyone to put their hearts into having a great time.
After all, when you have truly great times, you look back fondly on those memories for the rest of your life.
