Guest list

Length of party

1 1/2 - 2 hours


Entertainment for age

At this age, entertainment that involves hands-on activities such as baking/decorating cakes, sand art, or painting are great. Kids feel a sense of accomplishment, especially when they are at a phase in life where they begin to develop and perfect specific individual skills.

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.

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.
