5 ways to get more people dancing at your celebratory event

July 5, 2019 9:52 am

Having a boogie to our favourite tunes is something that practically all of us like to do from time to time – so it makes sense to make opportunities to dance central to your next birthday party, engagement celebration or wedding reception, too.

So, what are five of the simple steps that you can take to ensure everyone actually will get up and strut their stuff at your event, instead of being wallflowers?

Book the right venue

This might seem like an obvious tip, but so many people organising a party or celebration simply don’t book a space that lends itself very well to dancing. Picking somewhere that has plenty of space and a safe, even surface for the dance floor, as well as an inspiring backdrop and good lighting, will therefore go a long way to ensuring people at your event are in the mood to dance in the first place.

Pick the right tunes

Consider your audience as well as, of course, your own tastes, to maximise the likelihood that you’ll be playing music everyone will appreciate. Is there a certain vibe or even specific songs that come to mind – for example, sophisticated funk and soul for an over-30s audience, or the likes of Rihanna, Pitbull and Ed Sheeran if the age profile of your attendees will be slightly younger?

Hire the right dance floor

Choosing a dance floor with the appropriate dimensions for the given space will obviously be a key priority when you’re comparing providers of white starlit dancefloor hire in London or wherever your party might happen to be. However, it’s not the only one. Our team here at Save the Date, for instance, will also deliver, set up and polish the floor for you, at the most competitive price.

Contact the right DJ

Many people looking to hire a DJ might simply ask their brother’s wife’s friend or some other relative they vaguely know to fulfil this role at their big celebration. However, there’s more to think about than you might initially realise when it comes to deciding on a DJ; that’s why, here at Save the Date, we recommend the highly professional, versatile and knowledgeable Herts Events.

Arrange the right associated entertainment

Could your event budget stretch to cover a professional host/compere, singer, band and/or other performer? This is another touch that could do a lot to get more of your otherwise shy guests up on their feet and boogieing. At the very least, it could help to add some variety to the entertainment, so that you aren’t just reduced to playing the contents of your iTunes library.

Request white starlit dancefloor hire in London, Hertfordshire or Essex from Save the Date today, or enquire to us about any of our other services, and you can be confident of arranging a party that everyone attending will remember for the fondest reasons for many years to come.
