7472d41ad690b2d8da1274c7c5a63c48#1 Create a Name :

First thing’s first – think of a sweet DJ name you’d like to go by!

#2 Create a Playlist : Use iTunes, Spotify, or whatever musical organizational system you choose. If you don’t know how to do this, google it or ask your dance sisters for help!

tips on making an awesome playlist…

* VARIETY!  Mix up eras & genres: DDPP brings ladies of varying ages and interests, so it’s great to have something for everyone.

* This is a DANCE PARTY! Songs about dancing and partying are a good start! Guilty pleasure music puts smiles on faces.

* FEEL THE RHYTHM!  Too many bouncy songs in a row can tire people out, throw in something groovy so we can have a break every few songs.

* REVIEW! Look at the last few set-lists. This will give you an idea of the type of music we’re into, PLUS it’s best to avoid repeating a song we JUST danced to last week.

* TRY IT OUT! Make sure to listen to your mix from start to finish to make sure the flow works! It’s a good idea to enable “CROSS-FADING” on your music player… this avoids low-energy gaps between songs. If you can’t find it or don’t have it, don’t worry about it.

*COOL-DOWN Your last song should give us a chance to slow down and stretch it out.

*Please keep your list between 55-58 minutes.

#3 Send the Den Mama a screen-shot : Send an image of your list so we can post it on the blog. Please send it by the AM of the day you are DJ-ing! If screenshots don’t work for you, just send a typed list.

#4 Bring your music to class : Show up a bit early on that date with your mix on your iPod, mp3 player, laptop, or you can go old-school and burn a CD! Our in-studio stereo will plug into the headphone jack on your device (or we’ll pop the disc in) and after a quick soundcheck we’ll be dancin’!

freeBONUS: The DJ gets FREE entry to DDPP ! ! ! *Please note!* If you have registered and prepaid for a series (at a discounted rate of $5/class) this bonus doesn’t apply. However, if you plan on attending every class it is still cheaper to register than to skip paying the drop-in once or twice a series!
