A Fun Summer Party Idea: Dancing the Night Away

Dance Party: A Fun Party I Hope You’ll Try

This summer my husband hasn't felt like entertaining but I have so I decided to try a party idea I had been kicking around in my head, a dance party with only women.

I got my son who is a DJ and had him play 70's and 80's dance music. You could easily do this with an Ipod or a CD player and probably your phone.

Then I invited my friends and told them to invite their friends.

A Women's Dance Party

I made it a potluck with the rules being:

The food had to be bought at a store or restaurant and had to stay in its original container.
Also optional, you could bring something to drink.

All I had to supply was a clean house (I suppose the clean house is optional),
music, paper plates, paper cups, napkins, utensils and some beer and ice.

I started the party at 6:30 and had the music run from 7:30 to 9:30. I had the music just loud enough so we could still talk and still feel the music for dancing.

Dancing the night away

 I had the dance party on a Thursday so I wouldn't disrupt anyone’s weekend plans with their families.

I invited all my women neighbors to the party by hanging a note on their door and let my men neighbors know about the music so they knew when it would start and end.

The party turned out to be one of my best parties ever.  We all just let loose and danced funny and fun dances ate and talked. Most of us danced for the entire two hours.

I haven’t laughed so much in a long time. By the responses I got afterwards we all felt such a sense of playful joy as though we were kids again.

A Fun Party Idea

       Everyone wants to do it again so it is on my calendar for next year.


  1. Looks like it was a lot of fun for you and your guests. Having a party can be so much work, but you figured out a way to lessen the load, yet not put a burden on your guests. - Margy

  2. It sure was a lot of fun and you're right it wasn't hard for anyone.
