DJ Productions will present the Stoplight Scramble on Saturday, Jan. 9 at 8 p.m. in the John W. Hart Gym.
Spencer Seegmiller, a member for DJ Productions known as DJ Suspence and a freshman majoring in general studies, said he got the idea for the Stoplight Scramble theme on Facebook and felt like it would be a fun way to get people into an exciting, wholesome environment where they could dance and meet other people.
He said one of DJ Productions’ main goals is to get rid of the stigma that on-campus activities have among students as being less fun than off-campus activities.
“We’re trying to change that because that’s far from the truth,” Seegmiller said.
Luke Gillenwater, a member of DJ Productions known as DJ Gilly and a junior studying business management, said DJ Productions formed as a team of campus disc jockeys and members from the AV light department in December 2015.
Gillenwater said the involvement of AV light production makes all the difference in a show.
“The music can only go so far,” Gillenwater said.
He said it is the light production that adds life to a show.
Another avenue DJ Productions has used to improve the experience of the Stoplight Scramble specifically has been by encouraging people from all walks of relationship statuses to attend, Gillenwater said.
“We wanted to appeal to not just the single people, but the people that don’t really know what their relationship status is,” he said.
Students are encouraged to show off their relationships status by their outfit, according to the BYU-Idaho Master Calendar. Students who are single are to wear green; those who are in a complicated relationship are to wear yellow; and those who are engaged or married are to wear red.
“And if people don’t dress up, we’ll have glow sticks for them,” Seegmiller said.
Glow sticks are not the only free items students have a chance of receiving at the dance.
“We’ll be giving away free stuff all night,” Gillenwater said.
Gillenwater said the first 50 people to show up will receive free light-up glasses, and free dance cards will be given away throughout the dance.
Seegmiller said he hopes to have the Hart packed on Saturday night.
“Honestly, I don’t want to see less than a thousand people,” he said.
Seegmiller said he hopes the dance will get a lot of people into a fun, wholesome environment that they would want to come back to.
“We want this to be the best on-campus dance party experience ever,” Gillenwater said.
Students can get into the dance for $2 with their BYU-I Student ID Card and free with their dance card.
