December Ballet Playlist

December Ballet Holiday Music Playlist 


Is it ever too early for Holiday music in the classroom? Funny I typically only play Christmas music the week before the studio closes for break, but I am having a change of heart. The children ask me every week are you playing Christmas songs tonight Miss Kelli… Why not just join the rest of the world and go all out the whole month long.

The great thing is I believe children work a little harder to songs that are familiar to them. Lets be honest not all children love classical, or piano music as much as me. So if they know the song when they hear it, it feels comfortable, relatable, and more joyful. So this month in ballet we are using Christmas music at the barre that you can find in my previous December Barre work post as well as holiday music in the center, to stretch and across the floor. This months playlist is a mix of some great piano instrumental tracks that can be used as well as tracks with vocals. Use these as you wish!

Remember these are for ballet class so there isn’t anything extremely fun and jingly. If ballet isn’t your thing but you  love some great Holiday piano music it’s great playlist to create and just listen to by the fireplace on a snowy night.

With a Christmas song in my heart… LOVE K
