This is great way to get all your guests onto the dance floor. Heres how it works... The wedding party is called onto
the dance floor and a song is played (The song is a fast song) and the wedding party begins dancing. Now, when
the DJ says Snowball! each person will go into the audience and bring back a different dance partner to the
dance floor. Then, when everyone comes back to the dance floor, the dancing begins again. This cycle continues
until the dance floor is full. This dance is usually done at the beginning of the open dancing.
