Preschool Dance Theme Idea:

Baking Pumpkin Pie


In the Dance to Learn®️ Program we enjoy teaching sequencing and processes through dance and movement! One of our favorite types of sequences to teach is a recipe! With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we danced out the process of baking a pumpkin pie!




Conceptually, this theme explores the concepts of Shapes (Circles & Triangles) & Sizes (big or small slices). We explore Port de bras, coupé and passé.


We complete a full BrainDance warm up. We also perform a standing warm ups. We use our pumpkin pie slices to help us make first position.


Dancing out the process is fun with a Story Dance Pathway™️ a trademarked obstacle course that takes them through the process of Baking a pie.




Our featured props is our Curve a Beam by Autism-Products We shaped the beam in a circle and tip toed around to pretend we were sprinkling in our ingredients.



Also the Little Steps by Lily and River were the plate where we cut out a little piece of pie (coupé) or big piece of pie (Passé).
