The best your life
They say high school can be the best years of your life, so why not make your school dances equally amazing? The secret to unforgettable, non-stop, action-packed high school dances is dynamic entertainers that go beyond just a basic DJ and innovative production sets to visually take the event to the next level. Whether Prom, Homecoming, or a Winter Dance, most companies don’t have the talent, resources, knowledge, or skill to completely rock a high school dance.
Because this company started while in high school, we understand what it takes to create an environment your students will love while maintain professionalism to keep the teachers and sponsors happy. Interactive hype men, DJ’s that can mix and scratch, lighting and video sets that would make the hottest night clubs jealous, and interactive features like live Twitter requests and Instagram feeds transform an ordinary school dance into the party of the year.
ENTERTAINMENT + TALENT
Anyone can purchase lights or video screens, but no one can duplicate the innate talent and abilities of our performers. That’s the key. Young, fresh, energetic MC personalities get your students hyped and involved from the beginning, while expert DJ’s that can mix, scratch, and remix keep the beat hot on the dance floor. There’s no substitute to the best talent, and we’re proud to say they all work here.
LIGHTING + SPECIAL FX
There’s a reason every concert and nightclub spend millions of dollars on lighting and special effects: because the visual excitement goes hand-in-hand with the energy of your event. We specialize in creative, innovative, mind-blowing production sets, transforming your event space into your own private nightclub or concert, but in a safe environment. Automated moving lights in various configurations, laser shows, confetti cannons, CO2 jets, and even indoor pyrotechnics are just a few ways to take your event to the extreme.
DECOR + LOUNGE FURNITURE
Chic lounge furniture is the new trend in successful high school events. Set up a “chill area” for students to hang out, and refresh themselves for the rest of the dance. Just the look of lounge furniture helps to keep students at the dance for longer. It’s just more comfortable to sit on a nice, comfortable sofa – than a chair a student sat on hours ago in class!
Vision is arguably your most important sense, so stimulating that sense is key to invoking excitement. Adding large projection screens, flat screen monitors, or LED walls give you that visual spark, showing music video mixing, ambient and themed graphics, live TextMessage feeds, or even a photo slideshow highlight your high school career. The possibilities are endless.
If your dances in the past haven’t been exceptional, getting students to attend can be hard. We help with promoting your dances to generate attendance and revenue. Not only can we create edited commercials to show on your news program, design posters to hang in the hallways, but also offer lunch-time promo session with our DJ’s and MC’s to hype up ticket sales and giveaway some free goodies. We have faith that, once a school sees your difference, generating attendance won’t be hard, so we’re happy to help the first time!
PROPS + THEMING
Our in-house production division can help bring your theme to life. From draping, décor, LED dance stages, and high-powered searchlights to modern lounge furniture, backdrops, and themed props, our event experts will hear your vision and offer creative ways to bring it to life. We also offer Photobooths, Green Screen photo stations, Casino tables, and inflatable novelties for school events wanting that extra entertainment.

BOOK A CONSULTATION
TALENT IS KEY
Our entire staff is young, cutting-edge, and full of energy, bringing your school dance to a new level. Interaction with your crowd keeps them there longer in a fun, safe environment, while letting our DJ’s play the best music to satisfy the entire school. Talent cannot be duplicated, and our staff is trained to rock the teen crowd like never before seen.
DO SOMETHING DRAMATIC
Think some Joe Schmoe DJ with 2 speakers and couple of junky lights is what your modern, social media generation really wants? Think again. Today’s school events need dramatic lighting, production, and special effects to “wow” your students. They go to concerts. They watch MTV. They know what nightclubs are like. We can duplicate that jaw-dropping feeling at your school event so students talk about it for weeks to come.
INCLUDE A PERSONAL TOUCH
Our event experts are happy to sit down with your student committee to discuss the options, hear their ideas and vision, and bring it to life. We want to get your students involved and excited before the dance even happens. We have online resources for students to request songs before the dance begins, and use social media to keep your students interacted. These consultations are free-of-charge and without any commitment. What do you have to lose?
RAVE REVIEWSFROM CLIENTS WE LOVE
“I know it’s been said many times, but “You Guys Rock!” What an amazing party! The lighting was perfect, the volume was just right, the song selections were fun, and the dancers had everyone who could dance on their feet (and even some who couldn’t dance on their feet!) The music in the hallway during the cocktail hour added a nice touch, and was just the right mix. I can’t thank you enough for making this the best party our family has ever been to!”

“I can’t believe I’m awake this early, but my mind is just reeling from last night. It was an incredible party, thanks in large part to Todd and the team. You both know that the DJ makes the party – and everyone had such an amazing time. Todd was incredibly professional, kept everything moving throughout the night, and kept the kids engaged and having fun from beginning to end (along with the rest of the Electric team). The room looked phenomenal with the lighting – can’t thank you enough for making that happen, as well. Thanks so much for a great event – see you in 6 years at my sons’ bar mitzvah.”

“Blake and the team were fantastic! I can’t say enough what a great job Blake did with everyone — adults and kids alike. He kept the party moving, helping to manage and coordinate the entire event. DJ choices were great and the energy on the dance floor was pitch perfect throughout the night. He also had great chemistry with the kids — as did all of the dancers. We could not have been happier, and Sam had the night of his life!”

“You guys were amazing. You maintained 4 hours of high energy. Zoe is still hyped up over last night and her friends are telling her the same thing. Even the older folks loved it. I thought maybe too much for them but they explained that how it has been years since they had an excuse to let loose like this because all there kids are grown ups. Marco, again, I cannot thank all you guys enough for giving Zoe a very very special day. She, I, my wife Kathy will never forget it!”

“Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for everything you did to help us put together a fantastic event last Saturday night. The photo booth and magic mirror were huge hits. The lighting that you guys set up for the main dance floor was simply fantastic. Really, really cool! And the furniture and the rest of the lighting in other areas of the venue took a great venue and made it something truly special. I loved the tables that lit up in all different colors – that venue was perfect for the furniture that was installed – they really complemented each other! Keep a Saturday night toward the end of April open for us in 2018, yes? Would love to have you guys on board again next year!”

“Your company was wonderful! Should have had you for my daughter’s wedding! The fact that we had to ask students to leave the dance floor was evidence that the kids had a great time. Thanks so much!”

“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!!! That’s how fabulous Blake and the team was at the party on Saturday! We got rave reviews – I heard a hundred times how Blake made the party special. I just wanted to thank you both for making this important day so wonderful. I’m happy to post any review you wish, anywhere you prefer! And, I’ll be booking my daughter’s mitzvah soon! Blake, you better keep doing these until at least late May 2019!”
