Setting the Scene for Your Music Box Dancers
To set the scene for this dreamy ballet class, plan to decorate your studio with tutus, pastel bows, and of course confetti! You can get as detailed or simple as you would like, but make sure you bring all the vintage vibes for your dancers. Create the space to come alive as a dreamy ballet studio so they can fully imagine themselves as a real music box dancer. To decorate the studio, we used pastel frames with our Wall Flair, balloons, Twirl ribbons, and paper fans to hang on the wall above the barre with tulle and ribbon! If you have a jewelry box with a dancer in it, feel free to bring it to the studio so your ballerinas can see a music box dancer in action!
You will also want to make sure to have some sort of platform the dancers can stand on. We used a small ottoman-like seat, but feel free to use a small table or chair. Whatever you choose, make sure it is sturdy and dress it up with bows + tulle to make it a super special ballerina stand! And, of course, always supervise the dancers closely when they are on the platform!
FREE Preschool Dance Activity: Vintage Ballet Balance Barre
To start off this dreamy vintage ballet class, begin at the ballet barre. Make sure you have large pastel bows and ribbons tied at the break of every barre. Your dancers will start in 1st position facing the barre. They will go one at a time across the entire barre, practicing piqué up to passé from their first position. You will encourage them to travel across the barre like a floating ballerina, finding their passé and first position every time! (If this is too hard for your dancers, try doing a stationary passé and plié through 2nd position to the next bow!) Once they reach one of the pastel bows, have them rise up to relevé and bourrée turn with arms in 5th like a real music box dancer!! Have them repeat this exercise across the entire length of the barre, stopping at each bow and practicing their bourrée turns.
