 Corporate Events and Training

As part of my work as a professional dance teacher, for over twenty year, I’ve been entertaining the guests at corporate events.
My role is to engage and entertain getting everyone up dancing and having fun.
This often becomes the most memorable and photographed part of a function.
My formats draw out the hidden talents of the real stars of an event i.e. the guests.

Getting everyone dancing is not as easy as it sounds’ It takes leadership, skills and a lot of experience to make it work, but when everyone’s dancing, your event will be seen as a success and you are the star that organised it.

I have developed a range of formats to suit any occasion. They fall into three main categories but can be tailored to suit your event.
Please forgive me fir not revealing too much detail as these are my stock in trade, but I will be happy to discuss they over the telephone at your convenience.

Party formats:
‘The Strictly Battle’ A dance competition fuelled by office politics and a free bar!
‘The Snow Ball’ An extension of working the room where the snowball gets bigger and bigger.
‘The Guest Side Story’ The Shark ‘n Jets battle it out on stage in musical chorus line choreography.

Talk formats:
‘My life in dance’ Comedy anecdotes from the dance floor.
‘Two Left Feet’ Why are English men so rubbish at dancing A light hearted look a partner dancing from Dad’s Disco to the Mambalsa.
‘Flow me’ The Psychology of learning dance or anything.

 Tips to Get Your Party Dancing

1 Understand why people dance: To enjoy, express and be seen within a group. It strengthens bonds, cuts across corporate structures. Dancers stay longer and drink less, which saves money and possibly a little embarrassment back at the office. They also provide the visual focus after the ‘entertainers’ have left. I think it’s fair to say that a party where everyone danced is remembered as a good party.

2 Let’s get cheesy: No not the macarena! Who’s your big cheeses? Are they just ‘showing their face’? Butter them up until they brie-ese onto the floor. It’s a real gouda pleaser.

3 Work the room: Network every group of people before the dancing. Put dance on their radar and ask for their support.

4 Take control: All you’ve got to be is part MC, comedian and ‘Strictly’ pro. If you don’t take control who will? Or, get a professional in and bask in the glory of your management.

5 Involve everyone: the ‘can’t dance won't dance’ brigade hate to dance. Don’t exclude them, they'd love to be your judges, commentators, prize givers and photographers.

6 Location: Often the ‘party’ is in one space and the dancing is in another, fracturing the crowd. Place the dancing in the center so it’s the important hub of the event.

7 Prime the pumps: DJ’s set the mood, live music and shows are sensational, but don’t expect that crowd on the dance floor without a catalyst - you!

8 Celebrities: are expensive because they are known. Your co-workers are your own in-company stars. You’ve just got to get them performing.

9 Experience counts: When the plan hits the fan and excuses are flying who going to step in and turn it around?

10 Have fun: Dance entertainment is the most enjoyable, cost effective and memorable part of your event. Enjoy :-)

I hope these start a conversation with your team. Please feel free to call me a chat through your event. I’ll help if I can :-) contact us (it’s free)
