Dance parties are a fun way to bring people together to socialise, listen to grooving music and dance, dance, dance. Adding a theme to a dance party, especially a funny theme, helps to ramp up the good times, as well as to draw in guests who might otherwise be reluctant to cut a rug in front of others.

Under the Sea

Resurrect the 1950s prom theme of "Enchantment Under the Sea," popularised in the blockbuster movie "Back to the Future," with a deep-sea-themed dance party. Decorate the dance hall with fishing nets filled with starfish, plastic sharks and fish. Set up a clam shell throne for a photo booth. Serve blue-coloured punch and offer spiked punch to adults in a clearly labelled bowl. Play 1950s dance tunes and cut a rug with popular moves of the decade.

Adult Prom

Relive all the fun and fashion of senior year in high school with an adult prom party. Invite guests to arrive decked out in prom styles that were popular during their high school years. Decorate with streamers and balloons, book a band that plays music from the 1980s or 1990s and hire a photographer to snap shots of couples poised beneath a decorative arch. Arrange to pick up guests in a limo for an added kick, and, of course, crown a prom king and queen midway through the evening.

Dance with the Stars

Recreate all the fun, excitement and celebrity buzz of ABC's hit television show "Dancing with the Stars" with a dance-off party. Invite guests to dress up as their favourite current or past contestants. Hold dance contests throughout the night for guests who wish to participate. Ask other guests to vote on the best dancers.

Bust out a boom box, throw down a piece of cardboard for head spinners and beat box the night away with a break dance-themed party. Hire professional break dancers to entertain and inspire guests. Provide lots of cardboard and cans of spray paint for non-dancers to decorate with and hang their creations on the walls. Play a set list of breaking classics, as well as more modern hip-hop songs.
