As a member of the Homecoming committee, you likely have several responsibilities! One of the most important tasks to consider is the big dance, specifically the kind of music and entertainment that you will provide. Securing great music might seem like a daunting task, but with the following tips, you can help plan a successful Homecoming night!
Determine Your School’s Budget
Before you pick up the phone and call a professional DJ, determine your budget to see what you can and cannot afford. As a member of the planning committee, you don’t want to make any promises that you can’t keep. Determining a budget should be one of the first tasks your committee completes since it will help you make more Homecoming decisions down the road.
Take a Poll
The Homecoming dance is an exciting time for all members of the school! If you want to make every student feel included, take a poll of several songs to find the music that everyone enjoys. You can create an online poll through social media sites like Facebook, or you can hand out slips of paper along with ticket purchases. Create a list of six or seven popular dance songs, and let the students choose with one(s) they love the most!
Book a Reputable DJ
When it comes to booking a DJ for the Homecoming dance, it’s important to choose an experienced, reputable professional. The Homecoming dance is the first dance of the year, and you want to ensure that your school has a great time. A great professional DJ doesn’t just play awesome music. They also have the knowledge and expertise to read the room and play the music that their audience will love. If you decided to take a poll on the school’s favorite songs, give the list to your DJ ahead of time so they can incorporate the songs into their set!
