Team Bonding Ideas

Team Bonding

Sometimes it’s nice to step outside the studio, take a break from rehearsals and classes and enjoy some good old fashioned team bonding. A friend from another studio recently asked if I had any suggestions for team bonding activities and what things my dancer had done in the past. 


After brainstorming a bit, here are a few suggestions:

  • Out for ice cream

  • Bowling Night

  • Sleepover

  • Go see a dance movie

  • Attend a ballet or musical

  • Pool Party

  • Cookout

  • Picnic at a park

  • Day at the lake or beach

  • Movie and Pizza Night at someone’s home

  • Team party – games and snacks (we have done this before – more on that in another post)

  • After rehearsal – order pizza and have dancer’s bring a dessert

Secret pals or Big Sis/Lil Sis – give a small gift before each competition and reveal who your secret pal is prior to your dance recital.  Be sure to set a dollar amount and ask parents to please stick with this so feelings are not hurt and there is not competition on who got the best/most expensive gift. 

If you have dancer’s who are traveling a considerable distance to the studio, keep that in mind when planning activities.  If you do have dancer’s traveling from other places, planning something after a rehearsal may work best. Also, it’s always a good idea to check with your studio owner before planning anything.  She/He may have something in mind they would like to do or they may have some guidelines on how they would like these events to be planned.
