Hanukkah Songs with a Dance Spirit Twist

Look, a pointe shoe menorah!

Happy Hanukkah! To celebrate this festive time of year, I’ve taken two of my favorite Hanukkah songs and fudged the lyrics to make them about ballet, because… why not? Enjoy!

“Ballet Class, Oh Ballet Class” (sing to the tune of “Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah”)

Ballet class, oh ballet class
Find spots at the barre now
Let’s start pliéing
It’s easy, I know how.

Gather in the center
for pirouettes and beats.
Petite allegro’s tricky
but strengthens my feet.

And as we’re sautéing
Our class time is running low.
I’ve tried with all my might
And I’ll be back tomorrow night
To keep training, ’cause I love dance so.

I’ve tried with all my might
And I’ll be back tomorrow night
To keep training, ’cause I love dance so.

 

“Pointe Shoes, Pointe Shoes, Pointe Shoes” (sing to the tune of “Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel”)

I have a pair of pointe shoes
I wear them everyday
For toe hops, turns and piqués
I love to do ballet

{Chorus}
Oh, pointe shoes, pointe shoes, pointe shoes
I wear them everyday
For toe hops, turns and piqués
I love to do ballet

They complete every outfit
of leotard and tights.
I rock them in rehearsals
and on performance nights.

{Chorus}
Oh, pointe shoes, pointe shoes, pointe shoes
I wear them everyday
For toe hops, turns and piqués
I love to do ballet

Though this pointework’s tricky
I know I’ll never quit
‘Cause at home for inspiration,
I’ve this month’s Dance Spirit.

{Chorus}
Oh, pointe shoes, pointe shoes, pointe shoes
I wear them everyday
For toe hops, turns and piqués
I love to do ballet
