Meet the cheerleading troupe!

Cheerleading is becoming a more and more popular activity for parties. And it’s not just great for hen weekends. Birthday parties, graduations, reunions: they’re all a great excuse to shake those pom-poms.

Cheerleading developed in America to help get crowds cheering at football games. Back then it was boys who did the dancing, but now it’s more popular with women. And it’s become even more popular lately thanks to films and TV shows like Bring It On, Heroes and, of course, Glee.

So what could be a better activity than a fun dance routine recalling moves from some great shows? And even better: you’ll be doing it with friends and creating come fantastic hen weekend memories!

It’s a great group activity. So this makes it a fantastic opportunity for a bunch of friends to get together and have fun. And if not everyone in the party does know each other, it’s a great ice breaker.

Arranging a cheerleading dance is a great way to make the special girl have an equally special day. She’ll get her own chant yelled out by her closest friends and family as she’s put firmly at the centre of attention.

On top of all the fun, you’ll have, cheerleading is a great form of exercise. So you’ll be keeping fit as you enjoy your hen weekend.

After the cheerleading is done, there will be plenty more fun to be had, of course. Why not carry on with the cheerleader themed hen weekend watching Bring It On, the ultimate cheerleader film. Or you could try your newly learned moves when you hit the town.

If you’re feeling really brave, you could even perform your routine at the wedding reception. The guests will love it. And it will help make the bride’s day even more special.

Vanessa Robinson is the Events Manager at Pink Kiss, the dance party specialists. She says: “Dancing together is a great activity for friends. And cheerleading is a wonderful way to make the party girl feel extra special. We run cheerleading classes all over the UK and they’re always a big hit with the girls who do them.”

Ah, just look at all that neon! This can mean only one thing: THE 80s ARE BACK!!!

Many current brides-to-be will have either been born in the 80s or grew up during them. So, what better hen party could you have than dancing to hits from the 80s?

A themed dance party is a great way to get any hen weekend started. And they are the perfect excuse to get out the fancy dress.

Dancing is a great way to exercise, learn a new skill and, most important of all: have fun. If not everyone in your hen party knows each other, a themed dance party is a great ice breaker. And with a fantastic soundtrack from the 80s, everyone is sure to get into the party spirit quickly.

There were lots of things “acceptable in the 80s”. Neon clothes. Big hair. Bigger shoulder pads. Now, thanks to a bit of reminiscing, they’re acceptable all over again. There’s even talk of bringing Dallas back!

The 80s had it all: Scott and Charlene in Neighbours, Michael Jackson, Dirty Dancing, Live Aid, The Breakfast Club and Bananarama.

It was also the decade in which Fame, Footloose and Flashdance hit the screens. And they were all big on dance numbers. Why not re-live some of those great sequences for your hen party?

And when the dance party’s over, you could get the DVD out to bring back even more memories. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could try your new moves at a nightclub later on.

The options are endless: yuppie cocktails maybe? Driving a Delorean? Maybe a great big Rubix cube competition while you watch Labyrinth.

One thing you can be sure of: by starting the hen weekend with some 80s dancing you can’t go wrong.

Cheryl Taylor recently organised an eighties themed dance session for her friend’s hen party. “Our instructor was good fun,” Cheryl says. “She showed us how to do all the dance moves in stages. So we now all feel we can pull off the 80s dance moves enough to perform at the wedding.”

Vanessa Robinson is the Events Manager at Pink Kiss, the themed dance party specialists. She says: “Dancing is a great way to get a hen weekend started. If you want a bit of retro-fun, 80s dance sessions are the way to go.”

So get out the big perms, dust off your shell suit and let’s get dancing.

Vanessa Robinson is the Events Manager at hen party specialists Pink Kiss. She says: “A hen party is one of those landmarks in life. And it’s important to get it right. But even if you’re on a budget there are still loads of great things you can do.

“After a low cost activity, such as a themed dance party, you can keep the hen party going back at home. If you want to keep a theme going, why not do a Grease routine before getting the DVD out at home? You could even dance along with Sandy and Danny to the new moves you’ve learned!”
