Everyone loves to dance, it seems that it is in our nature as humans to want to move our bodies to the rhythm of music. We love to gather together and have a good time listening too and dancing to music. Choosing the right songs for a party or dance playlist can be a very tricky task given the fact that the music taste of your guests or friends can be very diversified. A party where nobody dances can be considered a very poor one and therefore you have to be careful when choosing the dance playlist. We have selected some of the best ways in which you can make a great dance playlist in order to help you have the best dance party ever.
The People and Timing
Calculate how many people are coming to your party and how much time they will spend here. Given the fact that you want the music to play from the beginning of your party you must choose some chill songs in the beginning to make people relax and socialize before the dancing begins. Make a longer playlist to make sure that you don’t run out of songs in the middle of the fun. It is good to have some back-up songs in case the party reaches the morning. The worse thing that can happen is you run out of songs and people want to keep going, also be prepared with extra songs.
Gather your music and think of a flow. If you expect the party to reach the peak of fun at 1 AM then you should think about the length and timing of your playlist and the songs so that you have the right songs playing at the right time! Use a computer program that will play the songs without interruptions. This way you will have a very fluid and nice transition in your playlist.
Be flexible. If you have access to the internet during your party and people request, you to play one specific songs you should do it. This way you satisfy the likings of all your guests. Never play only the music you like. Even in your closest group of friends you all have different music taste.
Types of Music
See what kind of music is usually popular at parties. There are many songs that are liked at parties no matter the musical taste of the guests. It is a very good to have them to make sure that everybody has fun. Search the internet and see what the best songs for a party are. Know your guests. If you plan to have a private house party it is recommended to have the songs that will suit the taste of your guests. If they like hip-hop, put many hip-hop songs in your playlist etc.… This is the best way to guarantee that everyone will have a blast at your party. It is also better to stick to popular songs or songs that you know that are liked by your guests. It is not a good idea to test new music at your own party because people may not like it.
