Coke and Pepsi
A partner game where you are Coke and your partner is Pepsi. Two lines are formed across the dance floor. DJ Billy Zee calls out Coke or Pepsi and that side runs and sits on the knee of their partner. Last one to the other side eliminates the partner team. DJ Billy Zee will mix this game up by using other names and other things to do, i.e. call out Seven-Up and both lines run to the middle and high 5 their partner and run back.
This is a very high-energy game. Everybody gets a balloon attached to a string and ties it to their ankle. The object is to pop other balloons while protecting yours.
