Making a First Dance Recital Special

A child’s first dadance-recital06-275nce recital is a very special opportunity for her parents to show her how proud they are of her. Dance recitals show off dance routines that your little one has been planning for all year. Here are some suggestions of how to make your little one’s first dance recital special.

Put an ad in your local paper wishing them luck. Many newspapers have special ad space for birthday, engagement, or special announcements. Let your little one know how excited and proud you are of their first dance performance by publicly telling them so.

Bring flowers to give to them after the performance. Flowers are a beautiful and appropriate way to congratulate your daughter. Flower arrangements can come in a variety of types and sizes, so it is up to you whether you would like to give her a single flower or a bouquet of them.

Video record her recital. Some of the bigger recitals will give you an option to buy a DVD of the performance, but video recording the recital yourself will allow you to focus in on your child and really show her off. Recording her yourself will also allow you to post videos online on your blog or on YouTube to show family and friends, without worrying about copyright infringement.

Let your family and friends know about her first performance. The invitations can be as fancy or moderate as you would like. You can send written invitations, an email, or even express the invitation over the phone.scrapbooking

If you are into scrap-booking and blogging, this is a definite note worthy event. Take plenty of pictures before and after the performance. Have your autograph the program and use it for scrap-booking purposes.

Plan an After-Recital party at your home. Decorate the home with banners with your dancer’s name on it and decorate with a dancing theme. You can find dance-shaped cookie cutters online, such as at Country Kitchen Sweetart.

Dance recitals are big events that deserve to be made special. Putting in a little extra effort will go a long way. And your little dancer will feel like a queen on her big day.
