Noah and his groomsmen were arrayed in brown tweed jackets displaying a hint of orange and gray pants.

Noah and Haley love the classic songs spanning from the 1960s through the 1980s in addition to modern classics. Haley belonged to a swing dance club in college, and many of her friends showed that they could jitterbug and perform ballroom dancing moves. Noah and Haley began the night dancing to Etta James’ “Sunday Kind of Love.” And We Danced DJ Entertainment opened the dance floor, and friends and family began to shake their booty to the music. Noah requested the “Chicken Dance” be played, and he shook his feathers alongside Haley, family, and friends to the timely classic. Haley’s grandfather, who is in a wheelchair, led the dancers in a conga line around the room. Throughout the night, guests were laughing, smiling, and dancing to the beat. In the end, family and friends congregated around Noah & Haley while they danced their final dance of the night.

Thank you, Haley and Noah for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your wedding day festivities. Good luck as you begin your new life as husband and wife!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment played background music during dinner and switched to memorable pop tracks for the rest of the night for an incredible dancing experience.

On a beautiful, slightly warm, sunny, late afternoon April day, And We Danced DJ Entertainment set up on the Penn State HUB-Robeson lawn for a Karaoke event. Penn State’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, during the month of April, were celebrating Pride Month with primed-themed events. And We Danced DJ Entertainment was providing the organization and the Penn State students with some pride-themed karaoke under the stars. The campus event was known as KaraoGay.

The HUB-Robeson tent and lawn were filled with busy Penn State students eating, studying, working and playing games on this day. Sonya Wilmoth, the Interim Director for Penn State’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, had gathered a group of Pride members willing to take the stage and sing. Dr. Molly Countermine, Associate Teaching Professor from the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, was asked to begin the event with a pride-themed song. She is not only a professor, but a singer who performs in the band The Hi-Fi’s and is part of a duo group with local singer and songwriter Ted McCloskey. Dr. Countermine chose Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” to start off the KaraoGay festivities.

The students on the HUB-Robeson lawn were awed by her singing. Many were nervous to follow in her footsteps, but someone took up the mic to sing. The HUB-Robeson lawn of students began to tune in to the KaraoGay music. The lawn was filled with students listening, singing and having fun with the students that took the stage. The students that took the stage had awesome voices. The performers were ready, willing and able to belt their chosen KaraoGay tunes.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had to end the KaraoGay event when the lawn was being readied for movie night under the stars. Sonya Wilmoth was excited that the student body enjoyed KaraoGay and plans to add this to events planned by the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity in the coming year.

Thank you Sonya and the Penn State’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity for celebrating Pride Month’s KaraoGay with And We Danced DJ Entertainment!

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!
