How to DJ a School Dance

School dances require a unique set of DJ skills. Avoid disc jockey catastrophe: learn how to mix your music to get people moving, formulate proper policy regarding recommendations, and avoid DJ pitfalls that can ruin your dance in seconds.

Bring more power than you need.
The sound level has to reach critical mass before anyone will dance. They have to feel the beat in their chest before they'll move their feet. Gymnasiums have awful acoustics, so pack more speaker power than you think you'll need. It's better to have your dials turned to a comfortable 7 than to blow out your speakers. Get too close to maximum volume and music quality will rapidly decay, a DJ's worst nightmare. So come packing some juice.

Some schools have a system in place and are willing to allow a DJ to use it for dances; plug in if you can, but bring your own hardware just in case. Schools are notoriously careless with sound equipment.

Get recommendations from students before you arrive.
Fielding recommendations beforehand gives you a chance to preview them for quality, genre, and school appropriateness. Any songs that I am not familiar with I will manually label "FAST" or "SLOW" so I don't have to guess while DJing. Opening up for recs early also gives you an excuse when the freshmen start harassing you to play their favorite songs; if they didn't write it down last week, you don't have it now.

Build up the dance.
School dances are not your typical club scene. You, as the DJ, have to carefully encourage people to dance. This is especially true for junior high school dances. You'll have to start playing music 15 minutes or so early, because kids are still learning what "fashionably late" means. Don't play your best music until 15 to 20 minutes after the scheduled start of the dance, when most people will have arrived. At the 30-minute mark is where the DJ is most important. That's the time to bust out the "Cha Cha Slide," possibly the best tool a school DJ can have. If you don't have the "Cha Cha Slide," get it. No other song gets people out on the floor and dancing faster. Follow it up with the hottest new song you have so the group collapses into a dancing mob. Keep spinning fast songs for the next ten minutes or so, then throw in a slow song. Always follow slow songs with a decent fast song to keep things moving.

Get a feel for what's working, and always have a "skip" button.
I've been a DJ at many junior high school dances, and sometimes they'll only dance to slow songs. Older high school kids prefer a faster mix. Adjust your playlist accordingly. If a song starts and the whole floor groans, don't fight it. Skip it. Hopefully you're using some sort of setup with a skip button that fades into the next song; it's the best friend a school DJ could have.

Be extremely cautious of recommendations during the dance.
One person asking for a particular song means that exactly one person wants to hear that song. Unless the entire gym is shouting for it, there's no guarantee that the rest of the dancers are going to like it. That's why song suggestions are a mine field for a DJ, especially while doing a school dance. If three or four people who appear to be from separate groups ask for the same song, then it's safer to play.

Silence is deadly to a DJ.
Five seconds of silence can ruin a school dance. I've seen it happen. Once the sound goes away, the entire atmosphere bottoms out. Fade between songs to avoid painful sound gaps. I always bring along an iPod that I can plug in quickly should my laptop fail, and I've had to use it. If you lose sound for more than ten seconds, you'll have to build up the dance again with a quality mix of fast songs.

Leave your taste in music at home.
You are being paid (hopefully) to DJ a school dance, not convince high school kids that electronic yodeling is the best music genre ever. Play what they want to hear, even if it makes you cringe. Don't try to slip in some of your own favorites if they're not what the kids like. It's unprofessional for a DJ-even a school DJ-and a huge risk.

School dances are mercifully short, lasting no more than 4 hours at the longest. With these tips you're likely to survive, although I'd still advise bringing along the Mace.
