Top 4 Tips to Get The Dance Floor Going at Your Next Party by Jason Fioto of Generation Events:

  1. Be universal: When considering your playlist, my advice would be to think on a more universal spectrum but still remain true to what your tastes are. You want everyone to dance without compromising the chosen vibe for your event.

  2. Create the energy: Music is essential to an event because it creates the tone for the evening. A DJ's job is not only to get people dancing, but to create an energy and soundtrack for the night.

  3. Dance party essentials: First things first – respond to what the crowd is feeling and be creative in your playlist. That way you will create a fun atmosphere through the music and your guests will be dancing all night!
