About Dance With Lance

Background
Dance With Lance Entertainment was founded by Lance Kussell, an established music
and event professional in the Boston area
. Dance With Lance DJ performances and
special events appeal to the discerning event host or party attendee, always
featuring music to thrill. The company offers disc jockey entertainment, event planning
services, and special event production for private, corporate, and institutional clients.  
Kussell is a graduate of Harvard College and Boston University's Graduate School of
Management (M.B.A). While he worked as an intern at WBCN 104.1 FM in high school,
it was during his undergraduate college years when he launched Dance With Lance
Entertainment as a solution to disappointing music at gatherings of all kinds. Quickly,
he became a fixture of campus parties from Boston College to Babson, and from
Wheelock to Wellesley.
After hundreds of nightclub, wedding, and private party
performances
, Lance, or "Dance With Lance" is Boston’s "Society DJ", and as one fan
put it, he has become truly
“the cure for the common DJ”. Simply put, his
combination of inspired music selection, broad knowledge of all popular music, and a
true entertainer's touch makes the Dance With Lance experience memorable indeed.

The Dance With Lance Event Series
For the professional crowd that has for so long enjoyed Dance With Lance music
for their dancing pleasure, Dance With Lance developed special events designed
around a signature, powerful blend of music.
Some of these events include A Mid-
Winter's Night Ball, New Year’s Eve, Harvest Ball, Emerald Ball, Halloween costume

The Dance With Lance event series
