Throwing a Dance party with cool music to dance too does not have to drive a parent mad. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. Young kids are rather hip and with it, so to speak, and will want the latest dance songs to be played at the next dance party. Select songs from the latest Billboard charts. Throw a few classic or old school dance songs in the playlist such as:

YMCA – Village People
Billie Jean – Michael Jackson
Push It – Salt-n-Pepper
Holiday – Madonna
Relax – Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Footloose – Kenny Loggins
Jump Around – House Of Pain
Gettin' Jiggy Wit It – Will Smith
All She wants - Ace Of Base
Van McCoy – The Hustle

The Dance party needs dance music but it also needs some cool looking dance party supplies. Dance party lights, disco balls (does not have to be a disco party for a disco ball), and glow-in-the-dark party accessories. A dance glow-in-the-dark party is tons of fun with paint, glow sticks, earrings, and bracelets. Pass out the glow-in-the-dark accessories to the kids before they walk in the dark so everyone has something that will glow. Creative tip: Make sure to put a stamp on all invitations that are to be mailed in a timely fashion. Sending out save-the-date cards is extremely important as the holidays approach and guests have a number of social engagements to attend. Plan ahead by including at start time for the day and if needed include a reasonable end time as well.

Throw a birthday dance party using homemade party supplies that will surely please all invited guests. Sensational get-togethers often involve designing and preparing in advance for the occasion. Most often color arrangements and other needed supplies will add to the celebration and make a great addition to the event. Nearly all hosts will find that fun décor and color schemes are the perfect perks for the event. This addition will give the celebration a really cool appearance. How is throwing a successful dance party accomplished? Arranging a dance party for a tween girl (or boy) allows parents to let children have a good time within the confines of the home with supervision. Invite guests by creating homemade dance party invitations with vibrant colors and all the necessary information.

A handmade dance floor should be something to consider when thinking about dance party supplies. Select desired flooring, such as plywood or laminate. Those who have a basement, installing a homemade dance floor will encourage guests to break a leg on the dance floor. For the party table or tables and chair, tie balloons of a particular color scheme to them. Welcome guests by designing a festive looking banner. Cut out various images of dancing people silhouettes and hang them on the wall, or tie a string to them from the ceiling.

Depending on the theme of dance party will determine which type of homemade party supplies will be used. No matter the dance party theme, research local DJ’s to ensure the music lively all night long.

Most guests will find a dance cake for a dance theme party to be very special. This delicious treat should be elegant and capture the beauty of dance. There are many designs that can translate onto a cake that do just this; each requiring very few party supplies.

Ballerina Cake: this type of dance should be a pale pink and white cake. It should have accents of ribbon-like flowing. A common symbol for a ballerina is often times ballerina shoes. You can get creative and have the ballerina shoe ribbons fall from the top of the cake to the bottom or down the sides.

Jazz Cake: Be sure to use a lot of sparkle with this cake. Edible rhinestones work great with this dance cake theme design as well as the colors red, silver, blue and yellow. A symbol of tap shoes might be a nice touch.

Hip Hop Cake: This should be a fun cake design. Be sure to use a lot of color and keep it very simple without over doing it on the decorations. Maybe include a boom box as a symbol for hip hop music.

The above designs can be for a birthday party celebration or any other event. The goal is to make it unique and one of a kind. Adding personal touches to the dance cake of choice will be the defining factors on what makes the cake great. This exciting event is the ideal time for creative desserts and other party foods designed especially for this celebration. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often fun like cakes that are designed especially for this celebration will make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these great party foods and desserts will add a lot of fun to the special event.

Why go to the club or bar-hosted party when you can have a much better one yourself? For instance, you can choose the music your crowd likes. There are many other great reasons why you can have your dance party at home instead of going to bar hosted events. From making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration. Some reasons are:

1. You and your guests save money.
2. There will only be people you invited.
3. It is safer.
4. You and many guests will feel more comfortable.

Many students are deciding to drop the lame bar-hosted events and have their own disco dance parties at home. When you do this, you have control over what happens at your party and not some strangers or some business. You can make the party when and how you want and invite who you want. You can choose the food, the music and even the lighting and decorations. What are some ways you can spruce up your dance party and make it a memorable one?

Budget is going to play a role in what you are able to do but some must-haves are always music and lighting. In addition, you will want drinks of some sort and probably some type of food. You might offer snacks such as chips and party mix in bowls or you may hire a full-out catering service to host the holiday party. If you have a bigger budget to spare, you can get professional lighting or even throw your own foam party.

For music you may hire your own DJ, have a friend DJ, set up a karaoke machine or play CDs. There is also software and music CDs available that allow your own dance party music or even let you have your own DJ so everything is fully customizable. Think of all the fun you will have with your own beats and your own friends in the safety and comfort of your own home as well.
