Pinterest
users have been creating and browsing all types of boards on the popular web site to plan their weddings, put together recipe collections, or browse for inspiration on upcoming projects. Pinterest can also be a fun place for dance students and dance parents to pin favorite dance-related images. Are you on Pinterest? Here are some fun ideas to create dance-themed boards of your own.

CREATE A WISH LIST
You can use Pinterest to create a wish list for birthday gift ideas or your dance recital needs. All About Dance, for example, has pin-it buttons on each item on our website. Many other retailers do as well. Students can create a “Dance Wish List” board on Pinterest and pin favorite items from sites like All About Dance to show parents, grandparents, or whoever needs some help with great gift ideas.

Another idea to help keep organized at recital or show time is to create a “Recital Necessities List” on Pinterest with items that you will need to prepare for the show like costumes, tights, shoes, accessories, make-up, etc. You can share your board with other dance parents, and some dance studios pin recital costume essentials to help keep parents informed.

POST YOUR DANCE STYLE
Create a board with images that reflect your own dance style. You can include different leotards that catch your eye, warm-up gear that you use or would like to have, make-up styles that seem interesting to you, and many others. Find out who else shares your style ideas and follows your board.

PIN YOUR DANCE INSPIRATION
Pinterest can also be a creative place for you to pin your dance inspiration, whether it is photos of professional dancers, pictures of tricks or techniques that you aspire to master, or inspirational dance quotes. Your “Dance Inspiration” board can be a place for you to reflect periodically on the goals you have set and accomplished in the dance season, and a way for you to connect with other dancers who share your passions. If you are looking for inspiration, you can also find boards created by other dancers and students to share with the dance community.

PINTEREST BASICS
Pinterest is a visual pin board where you can post snippets of your online dance life, and anything else that interests you. First you’ll need to sign up for a Pinterest account. Pinterest has an excellent Getting Started guide for new users.

When pinning images on Pinterest, you can pin items from websites using the Pin It button, upload your own images from your computer, or re-pin images that others have posted. A Pinterest board is a set of pins, and boards can have an unlimited number of pins. If you see a board that you like, or a person whose boards you are interested in, you can follow them to see when they are updated. You can even invite those you follow to contribute to one of your own boards if you wish.

Take a peek at the All About Dance boards to get started and find tons of beautiful dance inspiration. Sign up to follow us for fun contests like Pin It to Win It Sweepstakes held several times a year when you can win items from your own wish lists! We hope to see you soon on Pinterest.
