16. You can definitely still have an awesome dance party.

If you're worried that people won't dance, don't. If you're on the dance floor, they'll follow your lead. (And if you're the only one dancing, you won't even care.)

17. And if you don't want to dance, there are tons of other ways to entertain your guests.

You could hire a local a cappella group or gospel choir to serenade you. And no one will miss doing the Macarena.
