Dance Tips: Going With a Group
When the night of the dance rolls around, it's easy to get excited — and maybe a
little overwhelmed, too. Maybe it’s the dress. Maybe you’re worried your schedule
is too crammed to go that night. Or maybe it’s because you don’t have a date.
If that’s the case, have no fear. No one ever said going to a school dance requires
a date — dances can be just as fun (if not more fun) with a group of your friends.
It can be a total blast and, who knows, maybe your crush will be there with a group
of his friends, too!
Start planning now and talk to your friends at school to see who’s on board. Once
you’ve talked it over and made a decision, determine what you’re going to do and
who will plan the arrangements for a fun night at the dance.
Check out some of our tips for having a blast at your next dance:
Loop in Your Parents
Talk to mom and dad to keep them in the loop with your plans. It’s probably best
to ask for their permission up front and get some suggestions from them, as well
as understanding your options.
Decide on Where to Eat
Discuss with your friends where you'd like to go eat and whether or not it's within
your price range. Make your restaurant reservation early and reconfirm a couple
days in advance before your dance. If dining out isn’t your thing, ask your parents
if you could host a small pizza party with your friends. You and your friends can
chip in on a few pizzas and meet before to fuel up for the big dance.
Choose Your Look
Think about what look and hairstyle you want for your night. If this look requires
a professional, make your appointment in advance. If this is something you can pull
off on your own, give it a test-trial before dance night. Remember to go with a
look that is comfortable and is truly you. Nothing is worse than trying to dance
with a million bobby pins falling out of your hair. It’s super fun to get made up
for the dance, but make sure you can actually dance with what ever look you go with.
Pick a Place to Meet After the Dance
While you may be exhausted from dancing your heart out, you’ll want to pick a place
to meet up after the dance. This will be a great time to share stories, share pictures,
and unwind. Depending on curfews, you can extend your celebration after the dance,
or simply plan to meet up a few days afterwards. No matter when you get together,
you’ll be glad you did!
With these tips, you’ll be ready to have a ton of fun at
your next school dance. You might even make some of the people with dates jealous!
