Birthday Parties

In-Studio parties are currently on hiatus due our full weekend class schedule during the school year. We would be happy to come to your home, or another location of your choice, to celebrate your child’s birthday! Read on for more info…

What better way for an aspiring dancer to spend his or her birthday than through a magical journey of dance and imagination? One of RCDA’s talented teachers can take your dancer and his or her friends through the enchanting world of dance in a fabulous birthday celebration!

RCDA’s Specialty: Ballerina Birthday Parties, featuring…

Show & Tell!

The birthday star and her guests can see and feel a real pair of pointe shoes, a classical ballerina tutu, and a sparkling rhinestone tiara. Most importantly, the ballerina teacher will bestow upon the birthday star her very own rhinestone tiara which she may keep as a treasured memento of her party.

The Ballet Adventure!

The ballerina teacher will lead the dancers through an age-appropriate ballet lesson. Younger dancers will enjoy imaginative creative movement exercises which will help them to grow tall like blossoming roses, stretch out like limber kittens, and dart through the air like dainty butterflies. Older children will be thrilled with pre-ballet exercises like the Tango Passe and Mexican Hat Dance.

Dancers of all ages will be excited to move briskly around the room as they march, gallop, and leap. Then everyone will have a chance to dance freely to inspiring ballet music, calling upon steps they may have just learned! The ballerina teacher will help older dancers create their very own mini ballet story which they’ll love to perform for attending parents.

Finally, the dancers will offer a thank you in traditional ballet style, performing a reverence as they bow to the teacher and birthday star! As they leave the party, the children’s hearts will be full of the joy and beauty that inspires every ballerina.


RCDA also offers Jazz Dance Parties!

One of our talented RCDA Jazz instructors will provide an enthusiastic and fun jazz warm-up similar to the one we teach in our weekly jazz classes. Participants will also practice jazz fundamentals as they travel across the floor.

The RCDA teacher will then teach a short and fun jazz dance that features the birthday star. Our teachers use fun, upbeat music during the party, and the birthday star can also request specific songs to be featured during the dance lesson or for the jazz dance.
