Hi I'm Marley Majcher a celebrity based Los Angeles event planner and today we're going to talk about a bunch of ways that you can get your guests dancing. Now I've been throwing parties for years and years and years and I have got a ton of ways to do it and let's face it, there are a lot of different options out there but three of my favorites are really to set the tone. It's so much better if your guests know that there's a great place to dance, like a corded off dance floor having a fun disco ball, special lighting, that kind of thing, just to get them really engaged and pumped up and ready to have a fabulous time. The second thing, is remember ladies usually wear these fabulous stilettos and really fun shoes not necessarily so good for dancing. Now an option is everybody can take their shoes off, okay but what about a fun extra thing like just giving them flip flops or extra slippers so they can just take the shoes off and party until the cows come home, everybody's going to have a really great time and third of course you have got to have some fun props, nothing like a great boa to put everybody in the mood, love it, fun colors, pass out tiaras, wands all that stuff it just sets the tone and makes everybody feel like they're having a fabulous time. So again those are three of my favorite ways to get your guests dancing. I'm Marlie Major from thepartygoddess.com. Thank you so much and have a great party.
