It's about that time when the color green is starting to appear everywhere you look! Images of leprachauns and 4 leaf clovers seem to fill the streets. This holiday is celebrated all over the world, thanks to a guy named Saint Patrick, who was apparently called, the "Apostle of Ireland". St. Patrick's Day was made a traditional "feast day" in the 17th century to celebrate this former Saint. Now, however, the celebration of St. Patrick's life has turned into a celebration of all things Irish! This includes wearing green, using food coloring to make everything you eat green, and, of course, chasing leprachauns. Kids love to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and there are so many ways to do so!

Have you ever needed to plan a party for your little one, yet had a hard time coming up with some fun kids themed party ideas in San Diego? Have you gotten tired of just a simple get-together with desserts and some presents already? Here we give you four interesting kids dance themed party ideas for your child to have a special and memorable day!
1. Ballerina Theme
How about a ballerina themed party! Because how could girls say no to dressing up in tutus, ballet shoes, tiaras and imagining being the princess in Swan Lake? Since your child might already be taking ballet dance classes in San Diego, a ballerina party would be a great way to make dance even more fun in their lives! Trust us, as the little princes and princesses leap and twirl, the other kids who have not taken kids ballet classes will try to join in the fun! You can even hire a ballet teacher to come in to teach all the kids at the party a choreographed dance. Then they all perform together and the kids become the party entertainment! If that option is out of your budget, show a short ballet dance video for kids to mimic together. This theme works well for kids between the ages of 2 and 10.
2. Hip Hop Theme
This is a perfect theme for both boys and girls! Find a great, high energy kids hip hop dance instructor to come in and teach a fun class that will have your guests thinking of your party every time they hear the songs. The teacher can choreograph a customized routine to the birthday girl or boy's favorite song for a mini show at the end of the party. You can ask your little guests to dress in hip hop gear, including super star glasses, snapback hat, etc., and have them list their favorite hip hop songs. It would be even more fun to take pictures of kids in dance poses, and film the show to give as a party favor! With the right teacher, you and the other parents may spot the next Michael Jackson or Justin Timberlake in the house! Make sure that you host the party where there is enough space for children to dance it out, such as at a local kids dance studio in San Diego, or your backyard. This theme is great for kids ages 5 and up.
3. Disco Theme
What is a better way to ignite your kiddos' intuitive sense of rhythm than a disco themed party? Simply decorating the room with a disco ball hanging from the ceiling, Christmas light around the room, and black lights for a glow-in-the-dark effect, will turn your living room or garage into a 70’s disco club. For dress code, ask your little guests to come wearing sparkling disco dresses or pants and hand out glowing jewelry or glow sticks to them after they arrive. You can hire a local kids dance teacher to teach the kids in all sort of various dance styles while they play dancing games (e.g. freeze dance, musical chair). This theme is great for kids between the ages of 2 and 6.
4. Nutcracker Theme
Are you on the lookout for a cool winter theme party for the holidays? Then a Nutcracker themed party would definitely be your first choice! Decorate your house with toy soldiers, Nutcrackers, fake snow and paper snowflake ornaments, DIY nutcracker character paper masks and Christmas lights. You can even set the dress code as “holiday attire” for more festive spirit! Since not every little guest may be familiar with the Nutcracker, you can begin the party by reading the story to them. Later, show them a video of the Nutcracker ballet and then organize the children to put on their own version of the performance. To add more fun, assign each child a character and ask them to play the show for you! As they enjoy the dancing and acting, this classic ballet is guaranteed to have little ones twirling with holiday delight!
Overall, hiring a professional for your child's dance party is the best way to reflect the dance party theme. We recommend researching your local dance studios that offer party planning. Compare pricing, reputations, and chat with other parents who may have some experience. If your child already takes dance lessons, try asking their teachers if they have party experience.
