Plan a Sock Hop Dance This Fall

Hosting a 50’s style sock hop dance at your high school is a great idea. This fall you can really have a great 50’s dance event. All you have to do is a little preparation, and you will have a smash hit.


Have fun with your decorations. You won’t have to deal with the hot sun during this time, so you will have a little more freedom with what you choose to use for your sock hop food and decorations. Things won’t melt or get ruined because of the hot sun this time.

Incorporate the 50’s theme with your decorations. Place pictures of 50’s Hollywood stars around the room, hang old records, and have an inflatable jukebox. 50’s cars are also another great decorating choice.

Get the student body involved in the planning. They can come up with some pretty amazing details that you might overlook. Students are wonderful party planners.

Be sure to advertise the dance for a while before it is scheduled. You want the high school students to know about it in advance and talk with their friends about it before the day of the dance. The more advertising you do, the better chance you have of a good turn out.

Your school dance team may also want to be involved with the dance. Invite them to come up with their own suggestions. Perhaps they will have volunteers to teach the rest of the student body certain sock hop dance moves or 50’s swing steps.

The main thing is to plan an activity where students can mingle with one another in a safe and fun environment. A 50’s style sock hop dance is perfect for this type of activity. Add some great music, food, and entertainment and you are good to go.
