What do people all around the world do during any big celebration? DANCE! Is there any better way to start a party?! When you are searching for birthday party entertainment for your child’s special day, consider a dance theme. Dance-themed birthdays aren’t just for girls either: boys like to boogie too. Check out these different ideas:
The royalty of fairyland:
Create an enchanted land of dancing princes and princesses in a land far away. Incorporate crowns, magic wands, swords, glitter, bubble machines, and dress-up costumes. Bring in a dance teacher to lead the kids into a magical land full of imagery, movement, dancing, and games.
Kids on the move:
Hire a hip-hop teacher to teach a fun, high-energy class that includes hip-hop moves, tumbling, and props. Make a playlist of the birthday girl/boy’s favorite songs to play. Have the kids show off their new moves for parents at the end.
Hip hop crew:
Find a great, high-energy hip-hop teacher to come in and teach a memorable class. The teacher can choreograph a customized routine to the birthday child’s favorite song for a mini-performance. Invite parents to come for their big debut, ask guests to dress in hip hop gear, take pictures of kids in dance poses, and film the show to give as a party favor! With the right teacher, your birthday party entertainment should be off the hook.
Lights, camera, action:
This unique party lets your guests be the choreographers. Dancers can work in small groups to choose their own songs and then create a dance to perform at the end for other groups and parents. Tip: be sure to put show time on the invitation. If you hire a dance teacher, work out the sound systems and music playlists to ensure each group has its own music. The dance teacher should be able to help each group choreograph and work together. You could even set up a costume accessory box for kids to dress up with or offer them props to use in their dance.
Our thoughts on the dance theme:
The great thing about dance-themed birthday party entertainment is it can be totally catered to your child and guests to ensure everything is age-appropriate and fun. You can also offer your party in multiple different settings like home, backyard, park, recreation center or community room, pool house, or dance studio.
The best thing to do to find a teacher is to research your local dance studios that offer birthday parties. Compare pricing, their reputations, and chat with other parents who may have some experience. If your birthday girl or boy already takes dance lessons, try asking their teacher if they would come out for you.
No matter what, this teacher should be comfortable working with large groups of kids and have high energy and charisma. Not all of your guests will be dancers so it is the teacher’s job to catch their attention and make them feel comfortable enough to participate.
Have a fab party!
