Get Up and Dance!

We are a company that loves to dance (no really, sometimes some of us don’t even realize we are dancing), but other people may need a little help coming out of their shells. Here are a few suggestions on how to get people up and moving!

Interactive video games that focus on dancing can be a great way to get any wallflower moving at your party. Since it will feel like they are playing a game and not simply dancing, their nerves will be eased. We suggest Just Dance for the Nintendo Wii or Dance Central for the XBOX Kinect. (The Kinect has new technology that can detect your movements without any use of a controller and you can see your avatar in the television as you are doing the movements!)

Karaoke! Karaoke is a great way to get guests to mingle with one another and if you really want to make sure that your guests are connecting, we suggest randomly pairings guests and songs by pulling names and songs out of a hat. There is no better way for your guests to bond over their mutual embarrassment about (or love of) signing than performing “Baby Got Back” in front of the rest of the party.

Some of the jesGORDON favorites are:
"Rolling in the Deep" - Adele
"Forget You" - Cee Lo Green
"Only The Good Die Young" - Billy Joel
"Don't Stop Believing" - Journey
"Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" - Wham!
"Like A Prayer" - Madonna

The perfect playlist is the last way to really get your guests blood pumping. It's good to know your audience and play to their likes and dislikes. Pay attention to trends, age and style. As a universal rule, if you don’t have that information, we suggest sticking to some old-time favorites combined with top 40s of the time.

Try these classics sprinkled with your favorite current songs:
"Celebrate" - Kool & The Gang
"Borderline" - Madonna
"Freeze Frame" - J. Geils Band
"We Are Family" - Sister Sledge
"Superstition" - Stevie Wonder
"Come On Eileen" - Dexy's Midnight Runners
