If you’re familiar with urban rave culture, you’ll know that dancing to electronic music is among the most popular forms of DJ entertainment. For many individuals, the rave is an annual event, something which takes place out of nightclubs, in public locations such as the roads and malls. For those who take part in this kind of dancing, they are often looking for an evening out, an experience that is different from the traditional nights out. This is why it can be such a good idea to dance to electronic music. Here are some tips and guidelines for doing so.
The first thing you need to do is get a DJ. Many people think that going to a club and dancing to electronic music, especially when compared to more conventional forms of dancing, requires some sort of special skill. However, it doesn’t – it’s simply a matter of finding a DJ who plays the right type of music for what you want to dance to. If you don’t know of any DJs who play rave music, then ask around, or perhaps speak to your friends who dance to electronic dance music regularly.
Once you have a DJ to look at the tracks you’ve chosen, then you can start to look at what the song is about. It’s important not to make this decision solely based on the beat. Some DJs might be more inclined to play songs with a certain tempo, for example, while others are more apt to favour harder, faster-tempo dance music. When dancing to electronic music, keep an open mind, but don’t let it lead you away from the type of music you want to dance to. For example, if you prefer slower dance music, and you happen to be watching a video of a male dancer pole dancing, choose to sit back and watch rather than taking the time to dance to the music. You should take your time when choosing the songs you want to dance to, otherwise you could end up being disappointed.
You should also look at the selection of songs available at the event, you’re dancing to. Most of them have a range of dance music available, so you should have something to suit everyone. However, if there are only a handful of tracks available, then you might want to choose one for each element of your dance. For example, you could have a slow ballad for the first part of your routine, a fast funky number for the second, and a funky salsa for the final part. In fact, some events now offer a DJ who can change the order of the songs during dancing, so that everyone gets an idea of what’s coming up.
With most DJ’s, they’re always willing to try new things. This means you should take a moment to listen to the latest music and maybe ask them if they have any suggestions for new and interesting dance music tracks. It’s also important to spend some time thinking about what kind of equipment you’ll need. Some DJs offer dance music sets, which come complete with CD racks, lights, mats, leotards and more.
What kind of music you dance to depends on what type of event you’re dancing for. If you’re having fun with friends then you may consider something a little more relaxed. A reggaeton number may be ideal. Conversely, if you’re planning a corporate party, then a big hit will be a full band music mix. Take your time and listen carefully. Don’t just assume you’ll know exactly what the DJ wants to play.
You don’t have to worry too much about the DJ selecting the right music for your dancing needs. They’re more likely to know what you like then you’re going to be. If you don’t want a specific kind of music, don’t ask. Some DJs will be happy to play anything you want if it’s what you’re looking for. Just don’t expect to be pushed to choose a specific kind of electronic music, if you’re having a good time.
Dancing to electronic dance music can be fun and exciting. However, it’s important to remember that it’s still dance. You should dress comfortably and be mindful of safety. Make sure you tell your partner when you want to change the song or take a break. It’s important to enjoy yourself.
