Ballet & Dancing Theme Room Ideas
Dancing is one of the most popular first activities that little girls take up. Some continue on to make dance or ballet a part of their lives, while others just love the idea of being an elegant ballerina - even just for a little while.
Dancer or ballerina themed girls rooms are a common decorating choice, and there are some really great ideas when it comes to creating such a design. Focusing on the bedspreads, theme rugs, and different accessories can only get you so far... in the end, it's the wall decor that can bring out the 'feel' and impact of the dance theme.
To start off, the easiest colors to work with are pink and white. Ballerinas tend to wear soft colors and pastel hues, and these should be reflected in the room decor. Choose bedding and curtains that are easy to match, and if your little girl takes ballet classes, you'll need to incorportate a pair of ballet slippers or dance shoes into the overall decorating process.
The walls of any dancing themed bedroom should be subdued and easy to work with. Pinks, whites, lavenders, and even yellows are all good choices. This makes decorating simple, especially when you're adding wall paper, borders, or even full-length wall decals to your daughter's bedroom in dancing and ballerina-type designs.
The Sudden Shadows Ballerina shown above is a perfect example. This easy-to-use peel and stick decal smooths right onto any painted wall, while letting the original color of the wall shine through. It creates a delicate "shadow" of a dancer, keeping in line with the soft elegance and grace associated with ballerinas and dancing. It can also be repositioned and re-used, and is easily removed as well.
Implementing a Traceable Ballet Wall Mural
Want the work of a professional muralist, but for less than the hundreds of dollars you'd normally spend? Check out this Ballet Dancer Traceable Mural.
With this design, you apply a template to your wall. Then you simply trace it, and paint it any color you wish!
Once again, this enables you to decorate your walls with colors that match your existing room decor; you can even bring a swatch to your local paint store and have them match the color perfectly before painting the mural.
On darker walls, the mural can be painted white - or a light color. On lighter walls, a darker color works better for contrast. The beauty here is that you're free to do whatever you like, colorwise. Just tape, trace, and start painting.
Simple instructions are included with this mural. They even give you a practice copy, ensuring you do a great job.
Kids Canvas Wall Art in Ballerina & Dancing Themes
Nothing's cuter than finding the perfect painting to go with your child's room decor. And when decorating a dance or ballerina-inspired bedroom? This is especially important.
Depending upon the age of your little one, you'll need to choose exactly the kind of art you're looking for. Younger girls can go with more colorful and playful pieces of artwork that depict an almost cartoonish sense in their approach. Older girls wanting to decorate their bedroom in a dance theme will be looking for more modern and sophisticated pieces of ballerina or dancer wall art.
Always choose wall art that coordinates with the rest of your room decor. In a dancer's room, you want nothing too big - nothing too fancy or distracting from the overall theme. The paintings, like the dancers themselves, should be light, beautiful, and graceful.

Disney Princess, Barbie, and Hello Kitty Ballerina Stickers
Finally, you can add some more flair to your daughter's dance-themed room by adding decals of her favorite TV and movie icons. The Barbie Dancing Princess decal set features Barbie as a ballerina, as does the Hello Kitty Ballet peel-and-stick appliques. Add one or both to the room if your child is a fan of these timeless cultural symbols.
And if your daughter happens to be a fan of Snow White, Belle, Ariel or Cinderella? Disney also makes a line of princess stickers in the dancer or ballerina theme.
Don't miss the Dancing Princess XL Wall Mural. While not exactly peel-and-stick, it's still an amazing piece of self-stick wall art that also coordinates with matching wall borders in both purple and white.
Ultimately, you should take your dancing or ballet room theme to whatever level you feel necessary. Go with a little or a lot; hang delicate things from the ceiling, like ribbon or lace. And be sure to build a trophy shelf to hold all the wonderful things you child will win at her next dance recital.
