Middle and High School Dance Music List from 2012 Popular songs Prom Dance

                                                   As a mobile DJ for high school and middle school dances having the right playlist can, of course keep your crowd on the dance floor all night. As the main highlight of the night the DJ has to keep the students pumped and interested. Doing things to interact with your crowd and playing specific songs you know will have their hands in the air is what the party is all about. To maximize your night and keep the kids busy you need to have a series of fun dance songs, a group participation song, a slow dance and filler music that works well to keep the pace. A contest with a few small giveaways can also engage your audience. Students at the middle and high school level want a night club experience but aren't old enough to actually go out to one. Bringing that experience to them makes your reputation stand out as the person to call for making the party happen. Whether you're DJing a Prom, High School Dance, Middle School dance, homecoming or any other gathering make sure you conform the music to keep the flow all night long. I have compiled a great list of some top songs of 2012 and 2013 still in use today for many great dances.

                                                            Now keep in mind when you're playing music to any school crowd, try to mix it up. You don't want to play rap all night and you don't want to play pop all night. Mixing back and forth will keep all your guests happy. Most schools enjoy the club style music such as David Guetta, LMFAO, Flo Rida, etc. They also enjoy fist pumping, jumping up and down and doing a lot of interactive songs.Another great idea is incorporate some other styles of music such as country (if you have some country fans) possibly a couple of latin songs (salsa or merengue) and anything else that will appeal to a mixture of people. Always pay attention to your audience and if a song doesn't go over well than mix or fade out of it. Happy DJing and good luck on your next event.
