Bopper Science + Disco Party FAQs The ultimate party for excitable children is our combined DISCO and SCIENCE party!

Is this party suitable for boys and girls?

Yes, the songs and games we play are not gender specific at all. We always tailor the party to suit the age, gender and musical interests of the children attending your party. Therefore, if there are a lot of boys we will alter the style of the party to suit, same applies if there are all girls, mixed ages, etc.

How big does the room need to be?

We don’t need a massive space. Depending on the number of children, usually a lounge room or single to double car garage size is big enough. Contrary to what you may think, really big halls don’t seem to work as well.

Can I have my party outdoors?

We do prefer indoor parties, that way the disco lights have a better affect. We also find that outdoor parties don’t seem to work as well as indoor parties. Reason being is that swing sets and trampolines can cause a distraction, therefore it is best to limit activity on these items during the party or make the area ‘out-of-bounds’. We do however recommend the food break be outside. This is when things can get a bit messy, therefore outdoors is ideal. 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. But always have a wet weather plan if your event is outdoors.

The science component of this party can be completed outdoors.

How many children should I invite?

We suggest 15 – 30 children is the ideal number to create a disco party atmosphere. However we can do parties with less or more, we will always cater the disco to make sure all the children are engaged and having fun.

What time will the entertainer arrive?

Your entertainer will arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled party start time (this is with an allocated car spot or parking within 20 meters from the venue). This gives them adequate time to meet yourself and the birthday child, and also set up the equipment to be ready to go on time. This also gives you an opportunity to ask questions, give any song requests or discuss any special requirements if necessary.

When do the children have a food break?

We always give the children a 15 minute food break in the middle of a 2hr party. If the children have eaten beforehand or will eat after, we still need to give them a drink break and the entertainer will use this time to put special tattoos on the children. If you have opted for the 1 hour party, then it is best to leave the food break till after we leave. In this case we will just give the children a quick drink break half way through the party.

When do we do the birthday cake?

We sing Happy Birthday and cut the birthday cake right at the end of the party.

Do I need to provide anything for the entertainer?

The Entertainer will need an allocated car spot. For the disco and science set up, all the entertainer will need is a small table near a power point to plug in their equipment and a second table for the science activities.

Do I need to do anything during the party?

The only thing you will need to do is ensure the food is ready for the break. The entertainer will arrange the children around the table, assist on serving the food and help with drinks.

Are the entertainers ‘screened’?

Yes, all the staff and entertainers of Bop till you Drop have been approved with 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 house/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 house/venue is located. It is also a great idea to stick a balloon on your front gate.

What if someone hurts themselves, are you insured?

Bop till you Drop has $20 million dollars Public Liability Insurance. We are happy to provide you with our Certificate of Currency should you require it for hall bookings, this way you will not have to pay extra for insurance.

What decorations do I need?

We provide two fantastic disco lights; these are really effective in creating a spectacular disco atmosphere. Feel free to put any other form of decorations, however please avoid free floating balloons, they are a big distraction. If you really love balloons and streamers, it is best to stick them to the wall. Also avoid chairs in the disco space, the children will be dancing and can sometimes feel self-conscious if adults are sitting and watching, especially in the beginning of a party.

Will the children participate in the disco the whole time? Should I hire a face painter or jumping castle as well?

You really don’t need any other entertainment taking place at the same time as the disco. Children love the disco, and will benefit from all the structured activities alone. Should you really want face painters or jumping castles, its best to schedule them before or after the disco.

What if it rains? 

A $100 non-refundable deposit is required within 7 days of placing the booking. If your event is cancelled or changed 14 days out from your scheduled date, full payment will apply. Every effort is made to reschedule your party should the weather prohibit it’s go ahead. In order to avoid these cancellation/change date fees we recommend you find a suitable hall you can book closer to the day if your party is outdoors.

Testimonials See what our clients are saying!

  • Ivy had a wonderful birthday party on Saturday. I wanted to particularly thank Mitchell, the Entertainer. He was an absolute blast and I got some lovely feedback from other parents who certainly noticed how great he was. He was perfectly on time, ran the activities really smoothly and had a whole room of 7 and 8 year old girls delighted and enthralled. The Hunters Hill Club location was also fantastic. They had everything set up when we arrived and the hot food and fruit platters looked amazing and was delicious. Thank you for providing everyone with such lovely memories, I will definitely be recommending a Bop til you Drop party to anyone planning a dance party!

  • A massive thank you to a Stacey and Chips for hosting my daughters 5th Birthday Disco party. Your music was perfect and you both did a fantastic job involving all children and making the birthday girl feel extra special. Stacey is such a fantastic entertainer and has a gift with the children. She can remember all the children’s names and she’s only just met them at the party. Chips is beautiful and fun too. A great pair. Thank you ladies for a relaxed birthday party that all the children loved.
