And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of providing Connor and Rachel with music and sound as they tied the knot at the Lake Raystown Resort’s Wedding Pointe Gazebo. Pastor David Stuckey performed the service uniting the two as husband and wife. The bride wore a gorgeous, white, sleeveless and lace embellished wedding gown. Her lovely entourage were attired in purple, tea length gowns with silver, beaded sandals. The groom and his men were garbed in light gray tuxes, white shirts, light gray vests and purple ties.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment got the reception rocking with the introduction of the parents of the newlyweds and bridal party. Connor and Rachel entered the reception room to a steady stream of noise that is normally heard at a football game with huge smiles on their faces. They performed their first dance as husband and wife to Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas” which was a reminder of their first date.

The evening progressed with the traditional father/daughter and mother/son dances, followed by the removal of the garter and bouquet toss. Connor put on quite a show while removing Rachel’s garter for the guests. The newlyweds also danced with guests during the traditional dollar dance. Once all the festivities were performed, the guests were invited to dance and celebrate the newly mated couple. The “Chippendales” made an appearance when Connor and his groomsmen appeared shirtless while wearing only their vests, pants and shoes. They wowed the guests with their impromptu appearance while many were quickly taking pictures of the moment.

Rachel and Connor chose purple and gray as their color choices for the event. And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided the purple uplighting during the cocktail and dinner in the Raystown Lake Resorts’ lakeview ballroom. During dancing, the uplighting changed colors highlighting the magic of music in the room. Lake Raystown Resort, under the direction of Dan Gendenski, provided the delicious appetizers, dinner and late night snack for the bridal couple and guests.

The mother of the bride, Lea Ann and owner of Smart Styles hair salon in Meshoppen, coiffed the bride, bridal party, groom’s mother and herself.

The pièce de résistance for the day was the stunning wedding cake and cupcakes crafted by Maddie Cakes located in Roaring Spring.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of being the musical entertainment for the State College Area School District Senior Prom at Memorial Field on a sultry spring evening. 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.

Memorial Field was transformed into a wonderland setting for a senior prom. Students entered the gates and descended down to the field through a balloon and tinsel festooned tunnel extravaganza. Tables were resplendent with black, white, gray or maroon linens with four place settings.

A sit down dinner was planned before dancing. During dinner, students were able to participate in a game show event. Prizes were awarded to the winners. Oxymoron, a local State College group, were the people introducing and carrying out the gaming program. While students were participating in the gaming competition, others were mingling with friends and partaking of the dessert selections, anticipating the exciting dancing that was soon to take place.

As Oxymoron said goodbye to the students, And We Danced DJ Entertainment began ramping up the music inviting the senior class to come out to the dance floor and have some fun dancing to an expertly curated dance mix. A breeze was present on the field to keep guests cool and comfortable. Sneakers were prevalent among the assembly of students on the field. Many were quick to begin to dance, while others were requesting particular songs from the DJ. It didn’t matter if the song was old or new, the crowd had fun, sang and danced their hearts out.

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!
