Unique Ideas for a Prom & After-Prom That Rock
Prom is not just about dancing the night away. The perfect night will also include exciting prom and after-prom activities to ensure everyone is having a good time, including students who don’t enjoy dancing so much.
Here are the top 5 services you need to book to ensure prom night to remember:
1. Club-Style DJs
Music is essential for a school dance, but not all DJs are created equal.
For the best school dance experience, you want a DJ that excels in open-format, club-style sets. What does that mean?
- Open-Format: Also known as a Multi-Genre DJ, this DJ takes direction on the styles of music you’d like to hear and crafts a set accordingly. They can stick to a single genre, play from multiple genres, or take a suggestion like “music the students will love dancing to” and run with it.
- Club-Style: These DJs deliver a continuous “mix” that controls and guides the energy flow of a room. Unlike a radio DJ, they are reading the room and playing the perfect songs that do everything from warming up the room to closing things out with the perfect songs to cap off a night.
Our DJs are chosen for their exceptional skills in these styles. Plus, they always make sure to play the hottest radio-friendly music to keep the dance floor appropriate but popping!
2. Lighting, Production, & Special Effects
Take your prom to the next level with an amped-up atmosphere that changes based on the songs being played.
For example, add dynamic lights that up the energy and move with the music. We can also program your lights to change color based on songs and tone – think blues, purples, and greens during a banger and a warm, romantic hue like amber during slow dances.
Pro Tip: Surprise your guests with special effects like cryo jet blasts or confetti drop that will amp the energy up even further. After all, you are throwing the biggest party of the high school year!
3. Prom Photo Booths
Capture memories that will last a lifetime with a fun photo booth!
We have a huge selection of backdrops and photo booth styles that fit any theme or budget.
From beautifully printed cloth backdrops and mermaid sequin curtains to interactive green screens, you can choose the perfect setting for your shots. You can even bring in large marquee letters and custom props to take things to the next level.
4. Karaoke Party
Transition from high-schoolers to Grammy winners! Bring out your students’ inner rock stars with a karaoke after-prom party.
It’s easy to rent a karaoke machine or work with your DJ company (wink, wink) to host the ultimate karaoke jam session.
Bonus Tip: Give out awards such as golden mics for the best Drake or Taylor Swift impression, most popular performance, most entertaining performance, etc.
5. Giant Games
For prom attendees who aren’t tearing it up on the dancefloor or who need to take a breather, giant games are a fantastic solution.
We have a great selection of giant, life-sized versions of popular games like Connect 4, Jenga, Foosball, checkers, and more. See the full list here: Giant Games & Yard Games.
