A dance party is a social gathering at which the guests dance. It may be a casual, informal affair or a structured event, such as a school dance or a charity ball. Dance Parties usually take place during the evening. The music for dance parties is usually selected and played by a disc jockey.
Types of Dance Parties
A spin-off of dance parties, the rave involves dancing to loud house music. Rave parties may be attended by as few as a score of people in a basement or, more likely, by a few hundred people in a club, to as many as thousands in a large warehouse, field, or even tens of thousands in a sporting arena, amusement park, or other large space. Raves are associated with illegal drugs such as Ecstasy and psychedelic drugs.
A ball is a large formal party that features ballroom dancing. Women guests wear ball gowns; men wear evening dress.
