So, you want to have a dance party?


Dance parties are a great way to have fun and get exercise at the same time. Just a couple weeks ago, we practiced some getting fit with many of our friends! Everybody enjoyed the exercises that we did because they were fun, but they had the most fun dancing to a fun playlist!

I had asked for some suggestions on Facebook (are you following there, we have some good discussions!) and had the girls give some input, too! I had no idea they had such strong music opinions!

We knew our party was going to be outside in the morning and that there was a chance there would still be dew everywhere (there was), so thanks to iLuv we had a waterproof SyrenPro to help us get our groove on!  I synced it up with bluetooth to my iPhone, started my playlist and the kids handled the rest. Okay, and some of the grownups did, too!

In fact, a cool feature is that you can you can create a wireless stereo system anywhere with two SyrenPro speakers. It’s crazy to me how much better music sounds out of this true speaker instead of listening to it through the speakers on my phone. It sounds great! You can hear the baseline of music! And, it had such good sound we actually had to turn it down outside for fear of upsetting neighbors!

  1. M and I had a great time dancin’ the morning away! I am totally pinning the playlist!

  2. Great list, but I don’t like Shut Up & Drive. Shut Up isn’t a phrase we like thrown around at all, especially from kids! I hate that the song is in Wreck It Ralph. But anyway, looked like lots of fun and I love the other selections!

    1. We also don’t like that phrase in our house, either. It was a request. However, I’m sure if I look at the lyrics of most songs, there is something in them I don’t like!

      1. Oh yes, I’m sure. But that one is so blatant. Amelia has no idea what most of the signers are saying in other songs! We can fudge through those and she’s none the wiser 🙂

  3. that is cute — a great thing to have at the pool 🙂
    he is still into gangham style 🙂

  4. I love it! I’m actually throwing a dance party for my daughter’s 6th birthday tomorrow! We are doing it indoors and making it a glow dance party. Hope it’s a success like yours!

  5. My kids would love a dance party. We opened a karaoke machine today and they went nuts.

  6. Nice to know!! I really recommend other to read this article .Keep up the good work .
