Many nonprofits end their benefit auctions with dancing from either a DJ or a live band.
Traditionally there are two standard layouts for this type of event, and both are poor.
- The dance floor becomes the area from which the auctioneer works.
- The auctioneer is on a stage and a huge dance floor (a feature which isn’t used but for the last 90 minutes of the event!) is positioned in a top location, directly in front of the stage.
Neither of these options works because neither set-up helps your auctioneer build rapport.
I’ll even say that “dividing” the audience to the left and right of the dance floor destroys the community and energy you are desire to create!
