Dancer Christmas Gift List

Dancer Christmas Gift List

So, I previously shared my top buys for tiny dancers, but what about the rest? The serious students, those with a proffessional career, the ones who have seemingly everything?! At this ppint, it’s all about style! Here’s a fee ideas you may not have thought of but that they are sure to appreciate.

Training aids

Whether they are a student, pre vocactional, or proffesional, a dancer’s work is never done. There is always something that can be honed and strenghtened. Tendu World sell a range of equipment designed to help dancers stretch, strengthen and stabilise key the key areas of a dancer’s body, helping them make the top of their game, and stay there.

Novelty leotard

At this point in their dance life, they will probably already have a vast selection of leotards in their collection, so something with the novelty factor is sure to make them smile! This reindeer print leotard from Basilica Dancewear is perfect for the run up to Christmas and get everyone in the festive mood!

Customisable skirts

Along with a draw full of leotards, they’ll most certainly have a few ballet wraps thrown in. Something like this ballet skirt from Freda Silk thought will set them apart. With a stunning choice of floaty fabrics in an array of colours and prints, not to mention custom options such as lenght, cut and waitband, you can really create a perfect gift for your dancer.

Warm ups

Doesn’t matter which genre of dance, every dancer LOVES warm ups, especially at this time of year. This woolen unitard from Dancewear Central keep the whole body warm without restricting movement. They also sell a huge range of seperates, from the big top brands, if layering up was more your dancer’s style.


Dancers will quite often hit the gym, do a class or go for a jog as a form of cross training and keeping fit. Move Dancewear have a fab range of activewear made with dancers in mind, so they can be just as stylish and expressive out of the studio.

Dance books

Knowing your dance history and iconic figures in the dance world is imperative for understanding the fundamentals of technique and how dance came to be what it is today. Oberon Books specialise in publishing books for the arts. With everything from famous dancer autobiographies, choreographic and technical how tos, to company year books, there is something to inspire every dancer.

Dance bags

These days, a dancer will need a huge amount of items to take for a full day at the studio. Something like this Capezio Duffle Bag ticks not only the practical box with multi compartments and fastenings, but gets a gold star in the style stakes, and will give other dancers bag envy!

There we have it. A list of items and ideas that are sure to earn you a few extra brownie points and will have your dancer strutting their way into the new year.

Merry Christmas
