Age characteristics

Children at this age relate well to other children and are very enthusiastic. They understand the idea of a birthday party, and can anticipate it months in advance. They tend to latch on to their closest friends so make sure to invite them. Kids at this age also tend to like helping with the planning so give them the opportunity to help throw their favorite birthday party.

Guest list

Many children at this age are in school or pre-school so your guest list can be made up of your child’s schoolmates. Although many children are in school and used to being away from their parents, some children may need to be accompanied by an adult.

Length of party

1-1 1/2 hours

Entertainment for age

This age group has short attention spans, so the entertainment program for the party should consist of a few different activities- around five. A mixture of hands-on and learning is always a great combo. Children at this age can participate in the Bake-a-Cake party, our best selling party.

Safety for age

Make sure the party area is childproof and have a couple of adults on hand to help keep children together and the party organized.



Ballet Party

Deluxe Ballerina Birthday Box

Birthday Child’s Starring Role

Your child wins wide acclaim as the principal ballerina in her very own dance company.

Party Settings

Every “professional” dance company needs its own studio. If renting time at a local studio isn’t possible, clear out your furniture, set up an exercise bar. Use these frilly pom poms to add a sugar plum feel to your party.


Get your Birthday Child’s name up in the room with this personalized Ballet Banner.

Party Fun & Games

On the invitations, request that the guests come dressed in leotards. Once the entire troupe has arrived and each dancer has found the proper tutu in the dressing room, your party professional can lead them all in stretching and basic ballet moves.

Party Leader

Contact your local dance school to hire a professional ballerina or instructor to teach your guests some basic positions. Otherwise, an aspiring high school or college-age ballerina might be thrilled to have the chance to share her talent and technique.

Party Refreshments

Think elegant with a holiday flare. Serve an assortment of tea sandwiches and set up a confectionery table with lots of candy toppings and fluffy whipped cream for sundaes. Perhaps you could convince your professional dancer to bring the cake out on pointe!

Set out these personalized place mats on the table for some fun activities during the meal!

Party Finale

So far, your dance company has only had a dress rehearsal. Now, make way for opening night, when the dancers perform their routine for an audience of parents and cameras.

Birthday Presents & Favors

The roses might wilt a few days after the party, but each dancer’s tutu will blossom through many more practices and dances. Send them home with their personalized ballet bag and ballet slippers too.
