A Rave Party Without Glowsticks is not a Rave!

Apr 5, 2008
So what is a Rave? Well, it's usually an all night event where young people go to for dance, socializing, and and an all around fun time.

Colored beams of light, strobe lights, laser lights, smoke and a dark atmosphere give it its festive atmosphere.

The rave party goers are typically between the ages of 18 and 25, but really there is no upper age limit. Retired folks are welcome and have frequently been to these.

Because the people in the crowd are so different and unique, so are the conversations. They range from serious to completely silly and nonsensical. And generally everyone feels very welcome to participate.

Since raves have gotten a bad rap because of the potential presence of drugs, parents have organized their own 'safe raves' and dance parties for children. These parties have last through the night are fairly common for high school grads.

The techno music can be a little too much for the older generation (and young), but adult supervision is prudent at rave parties. A young adult should be free to 'let loose' sometimes.

And glowsticks are usually a big hit at rave parties. What often happens is someone will pick up some glowsticks and start doing their very own 'rave dance'. The light show that they put on is a sight to behold! The multi-colored light streaks flashing and waving to the music makes the night come alive. Some of the kids lose their shyness as they show off their skills with their glowstick dance!

It's called 'glowsticking', which is a form of dancing with glowsticks.

Freehand glowsticking looks like other dance styles as well as having its own unique set of moves. An basic movement used in freehand glowsticking is the figure eight. It is the most well known, although not the most common move.

Glowstringing is defined by a few factors: the use of glowsticks on a string, the swinging motion, and an equally large growing category of moves and concepts that are common to glowstringing and the moves are sometimes similar to freehand glowsticking.

Glowsticks are not recommended when the space is confined or tight since there is the potential of accidentally striking another rave goer when doing the moves. Some rave promoters have started prohibiting glowsticks from events if safety becomes a factor.

But normally common sense rules the day and the kids have good clean fun, enjoying the sounds and watching and even participating in their own light show!
