Remember the excitement of your school disco when you were at school? From the sale of the tickets up to the start of the night, getting dressed in your best party outfits for a night of dancing and laughter with your friends. Well, to this day the school discos and end of year proms are still ever popular. An entertainment company should be able to offer you a service of excellence when booking entertainment for this type of event. After all everyone has been to a school disco and know what it's all about; an evening of fun and laughter.

A DJ for a school disco or prom should be professional and be fully aware of the crowd of children or teens they are entertaining. It's a known fact that the younger party guests are much more demanding and can lose interest in things very quickly. Therefore the DJ should interact with the young audience and maintain a level of fun and excitement that the guests will remember for a long time. The music for the event should be carefully selected and where possible radio edits should be used to avoid any surprises like foul language. The DJ should play the latest chart music and also the 'cheesy' party music. At the end of the day every one of all ages loves the music of 'Steps' and 'Black Lace'. The sound system should be crystal clear and set to a limit which does not damage the guests hearing. All DJ's should be able to tailor the sound levels to the amount of guests so as to not damage hearing.

For the younger students a good DJ should have a whole load of fun games to do. Many DJs have set games for their party kids to do and many provide opportunities for them to win prizes etc. Also some companies can supply things like limbo poles and inflatable toys for the kids to have fun with. Add to this a decent lighting show with LED lighting and Lasers to give the night a Nightclub feel along with bubbles, smoke or a snow machine and you are promised a successful entertainment event that will provide enjoyment for the adults as well as the kids!

For School Proms many entertainment companies can supply balloons and decorations, a balloon arch at a school prom is without doubt a centre piece. Along with this they could also have contacts for limos and ball gown hire and suppliers. The is no harm in asking as many companies will be able to do this and you may even get special offers or discounts. I recently had to arrange a school disco and was able to employ a local corporate DJ that offered full disco hire services.

Whatever company you choose, please remember that for a younger audience the staff and DJ who are visiting should be CRB checked by the police and also have Public Liability Insurance and all equipment portable appliances tested.
