The fabulous Crystal Ballroom is a dancer’s paradise, and dancing is a natural part of the fun at most wedding receptions, quinceaneras, and other festive events hosted at the Ballroom. However, there are likely to be individuals who attend your event that either don’t, or can’t, dance.
How you handle this is important, as you want to avoid embarrassing your guests and maintain their dignity, too. The good news is there are ways you can skillfully and delicately handle the situation without causing anyone embarrassment.
First, you should avoid putting pressure on anyone to dance who doesn’t feel comfortable doing so. That means you shouldn’t call anyone out openly in front of other guests. Ask the DJ or host to announce dancing in such a way that no one feels excluded by the words used.
For example, don’t say, “everyone come to the dance floor now”; instead, offer, “the dance floor is now open.” The difference is subtle, but words could make a difference in how someone feels about being there.
In addition, you should always offer alternatives for guests so that dancing isn’t the only activity being conducted. The Crystal Ballroom makes this easy for you with its spacious facility. There are plenty of other venues inside the Ballroom that allows all your guests, dancing and non-dancing, to mingle and mix.
Finally, avoid making your event into a dance competition reserved only for the best of the best. Of course, some will be better than others at dancing, but don’t place so much emphasis on performance that it frightens away guests. Instead, keep the atmosphere lighthearted, and encourage willing, but inexperienced, dancers to enjoy their time on the floor.
The bottom line is that making all your guests feel welcome is important. The Crystal Ballroom is the perfect location, as everyone can have a good time at events held here. Be sure to contact us with any questions, and we can’t wait to talk with you soon.
