Primary School Discos FAQs – Melbourne Primary School Structured Disco & Karaoke Parties for Children.

Why is it better to split the children up into their age groups, e.g. Kindy – Yr2 and then Yr3 – Yr6?

We have discovered over the 13 years of running School Discos that children respond best when they are dancing to music that is age appropriate. Also the younger group tend to like a few team building activities, while the older group prefer more singing and dancing with less activities. However it is not always possible to have 2 disco sessions, especially if your school is smaller in size, in this instance it is best to have the children in one dance session.

We have had DJ’s in the past and the children just end up running around the hall?

We are not DJ’s, we are an entertainment company. We specialise in children’s entertainment, therefore we do not do any form of adult entertainment. You are paying for an experienced children’s entertainer who will be hosting the entire disco. We have 13 years’ experience in what songs and activities are best suited for primary school children. Your entertainer will be up dancing and encouraging the children the whole duration of the disco. Also always remember we do tailor the disco to suit your children at each disco.

Can we give any special instructions in how we want our disco formatted?

Of course you can. We always welcome any notes and information so that we can best achieve what your school would like to get out of the disco.

Do we need to have any supervisors in the hall during the disco?

We recommend you have at least 4 supervisors around the hall for the duration of the disco. Your entertainer will keep all the kids engaged, however you still need some supervisors to ensure the safety of the children throughout the event.

Can you have the disco outdoors?

Always have a wet weather plan if your event is outdoors. We also find that outdoor discos don’t seem to work as well as indoor discos. Kids tend to get easily distracted in big open spaces. If you really want to have your event outdoors we do have some regulations to comply with for our Public Liability Insurance. We cannot set up on grass as all electrical cords must be taped down and both the equipment and children must be undercover. If your event is during the day, all the children need to wear hats, sunscreen and have regular drink breaks.

What time will the entertainer arrive?

Your entertainer will arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled disco start time. This gives you an opportunity to ask questions, give any special song requests or discuss any requirements for the disco.

Do I need to provide anything for the entertainer?

All the entertainer will need is a table and a power point to plug the equipment in.

Are the entertainers ‘screened’?

Yes all the staff and entertainers of Bop till you Drop have been approved by the ‘Working with Children Check’.

Do I need to provide a parking spot for the entertainer?

Yes. Your entertainer will need an allocated parking spot as close to your venue as possible. There is a lot of heavy equipment to unload (and reload) and we want the disco to run as smoothly as possible and on time. Please note you will need to pay for parking should free parking not be available. Also, please ensure you give the office clear directions on exactly where your venue is located.

What if someone hurts themselves, are you insured?

Bop till you Drop has $20 million dollars Public Liability Insurance.

What decorations do I need?

We provide two fantastic disco lights that spin and flash different colours; these are really effective in creating a spectacular disco atmosphere. If you want any other form of decoration feel free, however please avoid free floating balloons, they are a big distraction, unless stuck on the walls. Also, its best to avoid chairs in the disco space.

  • We just hired Bop till you Drop to do a virtual birthday party for my 8 year old and I was soooo impressed. They did it through zoom, but they must have used professional equipment as the sound and image was amazing. Cathy the host was so friendly, energetic and full of life. My daughter and her friends loved it and didn’t want it to end. It was so nice seeing all the girls and boys on screen dancing and laughing. Cathy made my daughter feel so special. At first she was disappointed that she couldn’t have all her friends over, but by the end she was thanking me and even asked if we could do the same party next year. Thank you Bop till you Drop, you guys are a life saver!!!

  • Just a quick note to pass on our thanks for Emily’s Bop Till You Drop 5th Bday Disco party on the weekend. Lexi was amazing!! She kept the kids engaged and entertained throughout the whole party, and the disco was an absolute hit with the kids (and parents!). Lexi transformed our lounge room with her disco lights and everyone had a ball singing on the microphones, playing party games and showing off their best dance moves. The birthday girl was so happy her favourite songs were played and she felt the centre of attention. Also wonderful that even with her recently broken arm, Emily was able to join in all the games, singing, dancing and activities – in fact I think she completely forgot she had a broken arm! Have already heard from a number of parents that their kids would now like a disco party too. And of course Emily loved the party so much she wants to do the same thing next year! Thanks again.

  • We have just had the best school disco in years! All the kids enjoyed themselves and the energy and excitement from both Stacey and our students was amazing. All students from Kindy to Year 6 had a wonderful night, being able to get up on stage to dance and sing to their favourite song was great to see, Stacey did an amazing job! Thank you! We can’t wait to have BTYD back!
