Happy National Dance Week!   

April 25 – May 4, 2014 is NDW, a week to celebrate dance and promote fun fitness! So I have compiled a round up of all my dance related projects.

Birthday Party:

My daughter’s love for ballet all started with Angelina Ballerina. Of course she had to have a Angelina Birthday Party, these are the invitations. At witch we surprised her with her very first ballet lessons… that was the beginning of her love for ballet.

Her party was a smashing hit where I dressed as a dance madam and taught all her friends a quick ballet dance they preformed for their parents when they were picked up. The guest gifts were handmade tutus and hair pieces, we had a child sized Angelina Ballerina to pose for photos with, everything was frilly pink and of course there was the Angelina Ballerina Cake, handmade by me!.

 

3D Projects:

 As a piece of her room decor I created this shadow box “I Love Ballet”

 I hope you enjoyed this dance round up of our lives… here is a quick photo of another crafty dance project that I have not blogged about yet.

My daughter was cast as the Scarecrow in her ballet class’s version of the Wizard of Oz. I had to craft a straw hat that was pretty with girly flowers on it to match her costume. I also added burlap patches to the tutu for her. It was a 99cent Only Store sun hat and the flowers were extras from the pony tail hair piece ordered with the costume.
