NEW Fun + Fancy Products!
We can’t believe it’s already time to kick off another season of dance! Where does the time go!?
As you prepare for the upcoming season at your studio, we wanted to share with you all our NEW fun + fancy products to help you kick off the fun! For those of you whom we met at Dance Teacher Summit, you’ve already seen them first hand, but for those who weren’t able to attend, here’s an overview of each new fun item! All of these new products will help you to continue to #makedancefun!
spark*source – a creative planner for fun dance teachers
This was one of our best sellers at Dance Teacher Summit!! Don’t think of this as your average agenda planner. spark*source is in a whole different category! This content-filled, inspirational planning book is packed with material designed specifically for dance teachers, and includes six sections to help you plan for the best (and most fun) dance season yet!
Get It, Goal ~ This section includes questions and prompts to encourage you to look back at last season, spark inspiration, and help you set realistic goals that SHINE for the upcoming season.
567cre8 ~ Use this section to begin creating amazing things! It provides sources of inspiration and lots of pages for planning, including blank show planning pages, graph paper pages for choreography, staging and formations, and even body forms for sketching out costume ideas!
#makedancefun ~ It’s no surprise we included a section for capturing all your fun ideas. spark*source includes lots of content for adding fun to your classes of all ages, and even provides fun ideas for all four seasons in your calendar. And, of course, plenty of blank space for jotting down your own ideas!
Days I Like ~ As we mentioned, spark*source is so much more than just a calendar, but it does include calendar pages for every month of the year! They are dateless, so you can choose to use them as perpetual calendar pages or as a calendar for this year (never fear, there will be more spark*source in future years!). This section not only helps you map out all the days you like, but it also includes famous dancers’ birthdays (use them in class for an educational moment!) and fun hashtags to inspire social posts.
You Do You ~ Stop the madness, dance teachers! So many of us do not take care of ourselves the way we should because we work all.the.time! Use this section to plan your self care just like you would plan a rehearsal, a competition or a guest teacher. You are just as important as all.the.stuff!
Blank Space, Baby ~ You have a lot of creating to do! Write more than just your name on these 60 pages of blank space …plot, plan, play, draw, design, doodle, customize, choreograph, and create!
And, by the way, we just kicked off our season with a fun retreat in the mountains with our staff (blog post coming sometime soon!) and we gifted everyone a spark.source!! We used them for setting goals already!! They loved them!
This fun poster pad of eight dance prints is just the thing you need to decorate your studio hallway, dressing room, restrooms, staff rooms or any other wall space! Each durable poster is 8×10 so they easily fit into cute + affordable 8×10 frames, but they are just as cute without a frame, too. Hang them with mini-clothes pins along a wire on the wall, or simply use a cute push pin to make a wall collage! You won’t find a set of dance-related prints this cute anywhere else!
Another best seller from Dance Teacher Summit, 567cre8 adds fun + creativity to any dance class! This fun choreography/improv inspiration game includes 50 inspiration cards and two wild cards designed to inspire dancers to create their own dance moves! 567cre8 allows dancers to express themselves through their own interpretation of the cards. This fun game is available for two age groups: ages 6-12 and ages 12+, and both versions include up to 9 different ideas of how to incorporate these cards into dance class!
On 567cre8 for ages 6-12, each card includes a fun image with three descriptive words to help guide their movement. For 567cre8 for ages 12+, the cards include a background image with a single word to challenge the dancer to think more creatively about each card.
WOW Cards v2
We sold out of our supply of new WOW Cards at Dance Teacher Summit! Never fear, we have plenty in stock for ordering through our website! These fun, business-card sized compliments are all the rage with dancers of all ages. Our original version WOW cards released this time last year were designed with the tiniest dancers in mind, but, as it turns out, dancers of every age are completely enamored with being #wowcarded! While both versions work for any age dancer, our new WOW Cards v2 were designed with teen dancers in mind! You’ll find them to be a little bit sassier and edgier, but still very positive, complimentary and full of fun! Each box includes 20 different designs (25 of each design) for a total of 500 WOW cards! We know you and your dancers will especially love this fun new set of cards!
Stick to Fun Sticker Pad
We are soooo excited about our fun, cool and adorable sticker books! Each Stick to Fun sticker pad includes 32 sheets of custom designed, dance-themed stickers. You’ll find some of our character friends from our Twirl Preschool/Kindergarten program activity books included along with some catchy dance phrases. These are great to hand out to your little ones at the end of dance class, and even great for you to use in your spark*source creative planner and your own personal daily agenda. With 968 stickers in total, this fun sticker pad will help you Stick to Fun in dance class!
This fun vintage-style keychain is currently available in one design, but additional Confetti FunTag designs are coming next month! It’s the perfect accent to hold your studio keys and makes finding your keys easier and more fun! And, it’s a reminder to always #makedancefun!
