And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the honor of providing the musical entertainment and uplighting for Avery and Griffin as they celebrated their B’nai Mitzvah at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center. During the busy cocktail hour, Avery, Griffin, family and friends had a chance to enjoy some fun-filled games. Great prizes were awarded to the winning player or team that evening. The Penn Stater’s Eric Paul Olbrich and his staff were awesome organizing the cleanup once the entertaining contests ended.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the hall pumped for Avery and Griffin’s grand entrance. They chose Panic! At the Disco’s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” along with Lil Nax X featuring Billie Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road” to make their grand appearance. They ran into the room with all the hooting, hollering and clapping normally heard at a sporting event. Rabbi David E. Ostrich said the prayer and broke the bread before everyone began enjoying the scrumptious buffet provided by the Penn Stater chefs and staff. Later, guests enjoyed cake, pie, and three delicious choices of Penn State Creamery ice cream for dessert. Friends and family were invited to take home some tasty candy treats.

Sara Rosenberger Blose of Bona Fide Photography captured the amusing game moments and exciting night. Balloons were hanging from the ceiling with twinkling lights alongside marvelous balloon decorations created by Star Valle Entertainment and Decor. Guests were busy behind Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths BIG camera throughout the night. Guests were adjusting and changing props while the camera captured their memorable moment. And We Danced DJ Entertainment kept the guests dancing the entire night. Avery, Griffin, family and friends had the dance floor packed the entire night. And We Danced DJ Entertainment ended the exhilarating night with Panic! At the Disco’s “Victorious.”

Thank you Avery, Griffin, Kate and Stuart for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your B’nai Mitzvah. Mazel Tov Avery and Griffin!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of providing music for the Penn State Army ROTC Dining Out 2019. Current cadets escorted their parents, family and significant others to this year’s event at the Bryce Jordan Center. The Bryce Jordan Center staff had the main floor splashed with blue uplighting highlighting the dining and dance areas. Bryce Jordan Center Catering provided the scrumptious dinner for the event. After the retiring of the colors and final remarks, guests had the opportunity to take some fun photos with Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths. Guests were also encouraged to have fun dancing to familiar tunes.

Many people could be seen dancing to old and new dance tunes. Family members along with cadets cut a rug on the Bryce Jordan Center’s floor. Guests visiting Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths could be seen dancing to familiar songs while waiting for their turn behind the BIG camera. Karaoke was also available for guests at the Army ROTC Dining Out 2019.

Military training has been a tradition since the inception of Penn State. In the early years, training was provided by civilians familiar with military protocol. Later, a full-time professor of Military Science was added to the roster at Penn State. Penn State provided military training for many men that fought in World War I and World War II. In 1916, an ROTC unit was established at Penn State. Throughout the years, training has changed from the initial drills to instruction in all branches of the military to general military science training. Today, Penn State has one of the top ROTC programs in the country. The Nittany Lion Battalion today includes four companies. Three are known on the main campus, and the fourth is part of the Altoona campus.

Thank you Penn State Army ROTC for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your 2019 Dining Out!

The Nittany Lion Inn prepared a delicious buffet of food for the guests which was sampled many times. Guests then began to prepare for the opening of the dance floor. And We Danced DJ Entertainment had everyone up and moving with Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”  Dance lights were flashing and guests were getting down! The floor was packed with dancing bodies the entire night be it a fast grinding beat or a slow song inviting significant others to sway across the dance floor. No one wanted to go home at the end of the night! And We Danced DJ Entertainment played one more request before sending the guests into the night.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had an awesome time with the Middle Atlantic College Stores (MACS) organization at their 48th annual meeting and buying show that was held at the Nittany Lion Inn. The Middle Atlantic College Stores (MACS) is an organization that provides learning, teaching and networking for all its members in a supportive and collaborative environment. MACS tailgated and played some marvelous games, put together a spectacular fashion show of featuring new vendor lines for the coming season to see in college stores, and installed their new board with And We Danced DJ Entertainment. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was also tailgating with the MACS attendees. No one was shy behind the BIG camera that night.

The MACS attendees might not having been playing football in the ballroom, but they were playing some interesting team sports with And We Danced DJ Entertainment. It was hilarious watching teams grab a straw and suck up a marshmallow before heading back to the next player. The first team to get one marshmallow for each player won the game. Attendees were also seen passing a balloon without touching it with their hands, sculpting interesting marshmallow designs, and playing a twisted form of musical chairs. And We Danced DJ Entertainment had a great time with all the participants tailgating in the ballroom that night.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment played sports songs and emceed the 2018 Fashion Show Luncheon. A group of male and female Penn State students were the models for the big event. They did a fantastic job modeling the new vendor clothing apparel lines alongside a variety of sunglasses, towels, and drink holders sporting the various Middle Atlantic colleges logos that are part of the MACS organization.

Later that night, And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided background and dance music for the installation of the new MACS board officers. Many attendees were singing in their seats or dancing with coworkers. Many dazzled the crowd with their dancing abilities.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of providing the awesome music for Emma’s Sweet 16 party at Hollidaysburg’s U.S. Hotel Tavern. Emma wore a beautiful navy blue lace dress with silver stilettos. Her theme for the night was a masquerade. Guests arrived with sensational masks for the occasion. The U.S. Hotel Tavern had a never ending buffet of fresh cut vegetables, wings, dip and pizza for the party guests. Emma thanked the guests with a decorated bag of milk chocolate nonpareils made by Mid’s Candy of Ebensburg.

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was very busy with guests dancing to the music while posing for pictures with the fantastic props. Emma’s parents were the first people to step behind the BIG camera and strike some poses. And We Danced DJ Entertainment had guests dancing to some old and new tunes. Friends and family gathered to joyously sing “Happy Birthday” to the new sixteen year old. Guests created a conga line during Pitbull’s “Fireball.” It was an impressive sight to see as guests moved around the room.

Sweet 16 parties are linked back to debutante balls found throughout the ages. This was a time where a young woman was presented to society to find a husband. Today, a young girl celebrates the next step in her life, young adulthood. A sixteen year old is able to obtain a driver’s license. They are allowed to work 40 hours per school week and 48 hours per non-school week. A young adult is growing up, but don’t forget the cake! Take the time to blow out the candles and make a wish. Maybe your wish will come true as it did for Samantha in the eighties movie Sixteen Candles.

Thank you Emma for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to provide the awesome tunes for your Sweet 16 celebration!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment was proud to provide the right songs and music for Jen Berkebile and Erik Schmalz’s spectacular wedding reception. Jen did not have a particular theme for the day, but she knew that poppies and ranunculus had to be the flowers of the day. She then chose colors that would work well with her choice of flowers. Jen wore a beautiful taupe dress, and her bridesmaids wore poppy colored dresses. The groom and groomsmen sported blue suits with poppy colored ties.

Jennifer Berkebile and Erik Schmalz met while in college at Duquesne University. They moved to the State College area to continue their education. Erik proposed to Jen in May, 2016. On June 2, 2018, Joe Jividen, friend and officiant, performed the wedding ceremony at the Rhoneymeade Arboretum and Sculpture Garden. Later, the party adjourned to the General Potter Farm to continue the celebration. And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided the music that had people dancing, singing and partying the night away. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was busy capturing the awesome fun and poses the guests were displaying that night.

Jen, Erik, family and friends were either on the dance floor or mugging for a picture behind the photo booth.  Full Circle Farms was the fantastic flower artists of the day for both the ceremony and reception. Instead of cake, the couple chose apple, cherry, blueberry, shoofly, chocolate shoofly, rhubard and strawberry rhubard pies as the dessert of the night. They were made by Dutch Valley Bakery. That Kitchen Witch was the caterer for the reception. Ellen and her staff were also busy bees keeping the bountiful buffet line moving and enjoyable.

Thank you Jen and Erik for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your wedding celebration! It was very clear that day that Jen Berkebile and Erik Schmalz were meant to be!!!
