How to Plan an Amazing Sock Hop For the Holidays

Looking to liven up your holiday season? Throw a sock hop. Sock hop dances are a wonderful way for people to get together and celebrate for the holidays.

Start with a great invitation. Invitations are the first thing your guests will look at so be sure that you have a fun invitation to share. You can make hand-made invitations or purchase ones that have a 50’s theme.

Another important aspect of sock hops is the costume choices. 50’s attire is mandatory to pull off a successful sock hop. This means wearing bobby socks, saddle shoes, cuffed jeans, leather jackets, poodle skirts, and cat glasses.

Dances need really good music to dance to. Stick to the popular classic choices with your music. Elvis Presley and Bill Haley will definitely liven up the dance party.

You could hire a choreographer to teach some fun 50’s dance moves to people who are interested. There are quite a few fun dance steps including the bop, the hand jive, and the cha cha. Some people like to have the choreographer teach guests the dance moves an hour or half  hour before the dance starts so they can use those moves during the dance.

Food and refreshments are also a necessity. If you want to keep it light you can choose to serve ice cream sundaes and milkshakes. For more of a meal you can have the famous 50’s meal of hamburgers, French fries, and coca cola.

Dances need good decorations to keep them fun. Transform your dance location into a 50’s hangout spot. Hang up music notes, records, silhouettes of dancers, and classic cars.

Make your sock hop a fun place to be. Planning ahead can really help make everything come together nicely for your dance party. Brainstorm what you would like to see and make it happen.
