Bop till you Drop (BTYD) was established in Sydney in 1999 and has grown to have a proven reputation for excellence. It started off with one entertainer doing a couple of parties a month, then as word of mouth travelled very quickly the owners decided to hire a few more entertainers to meet the demand. A couple of years later in 2003, the owners decided to sell the business and move onto other adventures. Cathy Randazzo, the original BTYD entertainer was the perfect candidate for the job. Since then, Cathy has been the proud owner and director of this forever growing company. There has been much ‘blood, sweat and tears’, not to mention long hours, working 7 days a week year-in year-out in order to build the business into the success it is today.
Cathy is extremely passionate about children. She believes dance and music can really help develop a child’s self-confidence and creative expression. It is the one ‘sport’ that is individual, with no right or wrong dance moves. At all BYTD events, entertainers encourage children to dance ‘how they dance’ and not copy someone else. They try to create a safe place where children are encouraged to be individuals. This is expanded in our School Holiday Programs, with specific classes designed to boost children’s self-esteem.
In her pursuit of continuously delivering fresh and inventive party experiences, Cathy has broadened Bop till you Drop’s repertoire within the performing arts sphere. This expansion includes the integration of contemporary trends and in-demand party themes, such as Slime Parties, Science Experiments, Plaster Painting, Photo Booths, and even Stretch Hummer Disco experiences, among others. This dynamic platform is constantly evolving, with new themes and concepts regularly emerging. Bop till you Drop demonstrates remarkable versatility, adeptly accommodating events of varying scales, from intimate birthday celebrations and christenings to large-scale school discos, community fetes, and festivals, catering to audiences as large as 500 children.
Following several successful years, Cathy recognized the potential for broader impact and decided to expand Bop till you Drop’s enchanting experiences to other regions of Australia. This strategic decision marked the beginning of an ambitious franchising journey. Presently, Bop till you Drop operates across multiple locations including Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle, Wollongong, Brisbane, Melbourne, Geelong, Adelaide, and Perth. With this sustained growth and positive reception, the possibilities for future expansion are boundless, with goals of positioning Bop till you Drop for international reach.
