Honestly, if people dont  want to dance there is nothing the DJ can do to make them dance. I’m one of those people. I’ve seen lots of DJs play cheesy games or be really pushy trying to get guests on the dance floor. I hate DJs like that. If he played good music and people were dancing, it sounds like he did his Job. Dont feel obligated to give him a 5 star review if you think he was just ok.

@babycakes24:  Yeah this is really subjective. My family is full of BIG dancers and most family weddings are 200+ guests, so the dancefloor is “packed” so long as the DJ doesn’t TOTALLy suck. But I’ve been to other weddings where people weren’t as inclined to dance no matter what the DJ did.

What I’d look for in a DJ (and would give a 5* review for) would be one who “read the crowd” regardless of size. So if there are 40 people who are dancing to Will Smith and he put on some Celia Cruz and there were only 5 people left, he better switch back to some other hip hop QUICK.

I think it depends on your crowd.  I have a lot of family members that just don’t dance (the older ones mainly), and I know that there is no DJ on earth that can make some of those people dance.  Unless, he played music you didn’t like, or  did something wrong,  I kind of feel like you should just give him all 5 stars.  He may not be a bad DJ, it may have just been your crowd.  A lot of vendors depend on those reviews for their business, and if you can’t think of anything that he could have done differently, and you were pleased with the service he provided, then I think he deserves a 5.
