Host a Thriller-worthy dance contest
June 29, 2009
The King of Pop's rather sudden death came as a shock to many and people are still holding tributes wherever and whenever they can. Jamie Foxx Moonwalked across the stage last night at the BET awards ceremony.
To remember Michael Jackson's striking fashion choices and dance moves, consider hosting a danceoff party and encourage your guests to come in costume. Here are some tips that will help make your event a success.
If the party's host is particularly adventurous or into dance, he or she could teach attendees the best ways to copy Jackson's dance moves. Otherwise, guests can work out the dances themselves, or invent their own.
Make the danceoff a true competition and have guests pick the King of Pop's hits from a hat. Each guest has to do a different song and make up their original steps but to remind viewers of the era, the dancer must wear the music video's corresponding costume - or at least an accurate approximation.
Guests who don't or can't dance are the judging panel, and take on the roles of the teams on So You Think You Can Dance or America's Got Talent.
Remember to serve plenty of beverages and snacks for weary dancers and tough judges.
