"Unless it's a flash mob in the mall, synchronized perfectly to 3pm, you've probably never participated in a dance party in a fully lit room. It's uncomfortable to dance in the light, so make sure by the time the dance portion of your night begins, that someone is designated to turning off the venue lights or at least dimming them over your dance floor area. Of course this is a perfect opportunity to incorporate our beautiful venue lighting ;-)
If hanging string lights over your dance floor, don't surround the entire perimeter or put too much over it. A single strand of dim-able bulbs will do nicely. Let your DJ's dance lighting shine!"
