To summarize he identified, and I completely agree, that there are three types of people.
Dancers – These are DJs’ favourite, and they are easy to spot! They are the first to the dance floor and are having fun during dinner with all of your games and activities. They love music and dancing is natural. DJs LOVE dancers!
Sitters – There are guests that are not comfortable dancing, it is not natural to them and, frankly, dancing is not fun for them. They are there to celebrate and they are as likely to love music as much as the dancers. They don’t dance and that is OK.
Skeptics – This is where a good reception can become a great reception. Skeptics will dance but are not as crazy and outgoing as the dancers. If the music is right and perhaps they have had a few drinks dancing will follow. They will come to the floor on their own terms when they are comfortable. They do not want to feel threatened, or feel like dancing could lead to embarrassment.
