Do I have to have a Ballerina Themed Birthday Party at a Dance Studio?
No! Sophia is here to show you, that you can have a Ballerina Party ANYWHERE! In fact, we traveled to Sophia’s home and threw the party right in her living and dining room! Our first tip is to find a local birthday party or event planner that is MOBILE…meaning they bring their parties to YOU! Dancing Princess Parties is a mobile traveling entertainment Company in Denver, Colorado- hit up your Google Local Search to find a mobile birthday party company near you!
Do I need to plan any of the games? I’m not a Dance Teacher!
Hopefully, your town has a dance program or birthday party planner that has trained Party Hosts with dance training! Sometimes they may even have characters, like our Ballerina Princess, that you can add on to make your birthday party even more magical! That’s what we do here at Dancing Princess
Parties! You should find a Party Company that employs or contracts hosts and hostesses with training in dance, acting and voice! This way you can be sure that your birthday party can run smoothly and without a lot of stress or planning on your part! How can you choose the best Birthday Party company in town for your Ballerina Party? Here are some questions you can ask before booking:
- What kind of training do your party hosts in musical theater, dance and voice training?
- Are your teachers background checked/fingerprinted?
- How do you train your hosts to ensure they can lead an hour long party?
- Are your teachers trained in classroom management and childhood development? What kind of training do they have?
- What will I need to provide your staff for a successful party?
If the Birthday Party Event Company can’t answer these questions, or they inform you that you need to provide a lot of the materials to make your party happen, our recommendation is to STEER CLEAR and find a provider that makes YOUR job easier! The last thing you want as a busy mom is to spend another $100 on materials to give to a party host that will only be used once! You also want to be sure you can sit back, relax and watch the guests at your party enjoy a ballet class taught by a trained professional! Be sure to ask the question about classroom management…a trained ballerina is NOT automatically equipped to manage a party of 15-20 kids! Now that you know how to pre-screen your birthday party event planner before booking, let’s explore Sophia’s Ballerina Themed Birthday Party by Dancing Princess Parties! We hope you enjoy these ideas and use them to throw your next Ballerina Birthday Ball!
Tips for an at home Ballet Party!
Yes, we know what you’re thinking, my home isn’t a dance studio! How is a teacher supposed to come into my living room and teach a ballet class? Sophia’s home was also not a ballet studio, but it worked! Here are a few tips from our dance teachers here at Dancing Princess Parties to make your at-home ballet party work for you!
Find the best room!
The first step, is to determine which room will work best for your party! Pick the room with the most open space, the least furniture and a floor that will be easy to dance on. We suggest a carpet or hardwood floor over concrete or tile…this way if a dancer slips and falls, they are less likely to get hurt!
Move the Furniture!
Make as much room to dance as possible by moving the furniture. Push it as far back against the walls as possible. We’ve even had some party moms move the furniture out of the room completely! Obviously this is not required!
Make sure that you remove distractions from the room! Don’t hold your ballet party in the play room with all the toys, kids will be distracted and won’t want to dance! Turn off tv’s and electronics and create a blank slate. Have cakes, presents, and other non-dance games/entertainment in a separate room.
Prep the Room!
Be sure your room has everything your Ballet Party host will need! including a wall outlet for a speaker, a table or counter to leave props, and water!
We love moms and dads watching the fun! Just be sure there is a separate area for observers so they aren’t in the way of the dancers!
All right, now that you know you CAN host a ballet party anywhere, let’s look inside Sophia’s in-home Princess Ballerina birthday party! These pictures showcase how a party in a small, home space can be arranged with a qualified dance educator who has extensive experience working with kids! Enjoy!
