Today let’s meet one of the owners and DJs of And We Danced – DJ Chloe!

Hello DJ Chloe! What is your role at And We Danced DJ Entertainment?

I am an owner and DJ for And We Danced DJ Entertainment.

How did you get into the DJ business?

My parents have been in DJ entertainment business for many years. As I got older, they taught me how to work a mixer and prepare songs for an event. So, I learned the DJ business since it was part of my parents’ lives.

What is your favorite color?

I love the color hot pink.

What type of pet would you like to adopt?

I am a dog lover. My favorite is my miniature dachshund. She is my snuggle buddy and best buddy besides my sister.

What is your favorite food item?

My favorite food item are sugar cookies. My mom makes the best cutout sugar cookies. For my birthday, she makes me a batch with my favorite color icing. I can’t stop eating them because they taste so good.

What do you enjoy about DJing an event?

I love watching how people react to the songs I play. It is fun to see everyone dancing and having fun, but sometimes I like to test some musical selections to find out what people think.

What is your favorite artist/band/music genre?

I love electronic music.

Do you create your own remixes?

I do create my own remixes.  It’s really a blast doing that!

Do you feel different being a female DJ in a male dominated field?

I don’t think about it. My job as a DJ is to make sure the dance floor is packed with people dancing! As long as I make my clients and audience happy with my song selection and performance, then I can feel good about the impression that I make on the crowd! I like to be known as a DJ, and not just a female DJ!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of providing the musical tunes for Natalie’s Magnificent Pool Party. Natalie chose a beautiful, sunny day to host her party. She had a lovely luncheon available for guests to partake. A bartender was busy serving kid-friendly and adult refreshments to guests. A photo booth was available for guests to take some pictures, and And We Danced DJ Entertainment was busy mixing while guests were busy singing the tunes, clapping to the music or dancing.

Natalie’s puppy also played a big role at Natalie’s Magnificent Pool Party. When the puppy was allowed out to play with guests around the pool, she made sure she got to sample the treats available from the luncheon. The puppy didn’t step behind the camera for any photo booth photos, but the bartender did serve her a big glass of ice cold water. Natalie’s puppy was a little nervous about stepping into the pool, but she finally dived in and swam to get Natalie’s attention and approval. The puppy showed everyone that she did indeed know how to doggy-paddle.

Throughout the ages, people have been gathering around bodies of water. So, pool parties have been part of history for a very long time. Looking back, the first man-made public pool known as the “great bath” was created in 3000 B.C.E. by the Mohenjo-dario people. In the 6th century B.C.E., the Palaestras create an open pool for socializing and swimming. By 305 A.D.E., the Romans built the first heated public pool. In the early 1800s, England creates the first indoor swimming club which becomes really popular as a meeting area. In 1895, the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, North Carolina, the family home of George and Edith Vanderbilt, is the first American home to have an indoor swimming pool and hosted pool parties. In 1907, the Philadelphia Racquet Club opens the first modern above ground swimming pool. By the 1950s, backyard pool parties are soaring in popularity. Today, there is one activity people cannot live without and that is swimming. The only thing that beats just going swimming is having a magnificent pool party where everyone can relax, cool off and have some fun!

Thank you Natalie for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your Magnificent Pool Party festivities.
