How do I check the availabilty for a party?
See our online scheduler here: http://balletfantastique.org/inside/birthdays.php, or feel free to call us at 541-342-4611.
Are we able to come in 30 minutes prior to the party to set up?
Yes, 30 minutes of set-up time is facilitated for you. Our Ballet Fantastique dancer will be there to help assist you.
What do I have to provide for the party?
A reminder: Ballet Fantastique does not furnish food, drink, favors, or decoration for your party. Please bring your own decorations, cake, plates, utensils, etc. We have a basic tablecloth for the presents table; feel free to bring another if you’d like. We provide two tables for the party children, as well as one table that is usually used for gifts.
What does Ballet Fantastique provide?
Class instruction and a professional dancer-teacher to lead the party. All you have to do is sit back, enjoy, and take photos! We also provide three tables and kids’ benches in our beautiful professional ballet studio.
Who leads the party?
An experienced professional dancer-teacher from Ballet Fantastique will lead your party and dance lesson!
What if we have boys coming?
Our teachers are experienced in making sure the party is fun for all, including dance games, such as, magic beanstalks, airplanes, and lions in the jungle.
What is the usual party schedule?
• 30 minutes prior to party: Ballet Fantastique opens the studio to you for set up
• 10 minutes: Guests arrive, greetings
• 40-45 minutes: Ballet lesson with Ballet Fantastique dancer (scarves, ribbons, and magic wands provided by Ballet Fantastique for use during dance lesson; these items will be returned to the Ballet Fantastique treasure chest)
• 15 minutes: Presents
• 15 minutes: Cake, snacks, candles, and singing “Happy Birthday”
• 10 minutes: Goodbyes, favors
What should children wear to the party?
Our instructor will remind you of this as well, but street shoes are not allowed anywhere past the doorway of our studio space; they damage the professional floors for our danseurs and ballerinas (thanks in advance for your understanding!). All guests (parents included), should be invited to come prepared to wear socks (recommended), bare feet—or ballet slippers if they’ve got some and want to be fancy! Our invitation design also includes this reminder for guests.
What if guests forget their liability releases?
We’ll have extras at our space available to you. All party participants must have a signed release form on file.
Are there guidelines for decorations?
Decorations should be easy to clean up and cannot leave permanent marks (e.g., nails, tacks, paint damage, etc.).
