Ten Great Gift Ideas for Your Dancer

So you have a dancer and the season of gifting is approaching… and you have absolutely no idea what to get them do you?  

Well here is a list of 10 gifts that every dancer will love to see under the tree this holiday season.


1 SoDanca’s Pointe Shoe Covers

These cute pointe shoes covers come in so many different colors and designs that your dancer will be sure to love. They work to help keep the pointe shoe in good condition when warming up or backstage, but really they are just the coolest gift to give your dancer.

2 New Shoes

This one may sound weird, but trust me every dancer wears their shoes way past dead without telling anyone until their toes are literally popping out of the top. Trust me  I’ve seen it happen. New shoes are sure to be a great hit and if they are ready for pointe shoes a surprise trip to Dancewear Corner for a fitting might be a good idea.

3 Gaynor Minden Flexibility Band

This is a must for any dancer wanting to increase their flexibility. I mean what dancer isn’t wanting to increase their flexibility, am I right? This can be used on the floor to get that perfect straddle split or while standing to perfect that needle split.

4 New Dancewear

You can never go wrong with new dancewear. Whether your dancer loves leotards or bra tops and shorts they have probably worn the same items of clothing for multiple dance classes in a row. So some new clothes aren’t a want… they’re a necessity.


5 I- Flex Jr.

This is similar to the Gaynor Minden Flexibility band, except that it attaches to a closed door and works using a pulley system. However, this can only be used while standing or on a chair, but it allows that dance to control the leg that is being stretched a little better than the Gaynor Minden Flexibility band. 

6 Make Up

Every dancer needs makeup for the stage and to just play around with. So a little pallet would make for a get stocking stuffer no matter the age of the dancer.

7 The Hairpin Pal

This one is a no-brainer. There is one thing that every dancer needs and can never have enough of and that is bobby pins. Ask any dancer and they will tell you that as soon as they open a pack of bobby pins in two seconds they will have three left.

You don’t know where the bobby pins disappeared to, but you do know that you need to get more before the next class. Enter the Hairpin pal, this keeps all the bobby pins together in one place because it’s magnetic and not to mention it comes in two beautiful colors.    



8 Water bottle

What dancer doesn’t need a water bottle to get them through dance class? Plus there are so many cute dance-themed water bottles that they are sure to love. With that in mind, a plain one just won’t do.


9 Dance Accessories

Now I know what you are thinking “dance accessories is a pretty broad topic” and your right, but there are two dance accessories that would make a great gift to any dancer and they are the Dance Apothecary Set and the Dancers problem kit. These two products are great for the dancer to use after class for recovery. So it may seem weird but after your dance uses it they will love it and the dance apothecary set smells amazing.

10 DancersHaul Subscription

You can’t go wrong with this last gift idea. Getting your dancer a subscription to DancersHaul takes all the stress off your shoulders. You just put in your dancers’ style and sizes then sit back and wait for it to come to your house. There are different subscription boxes you can get so click here to check it out.

What Should I Wear To A Dance Convention

Dance conventions can be exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time. They’re a great place to meet and connect with choreographers and other inspiring dancers. These connections are extremely important because one day you could find yourself working with a choreographer that you met at a convention. So you will want to make a good first impression to everyone in attendance as well as stand out from the crowd. That’s where your outfit choice comes in.

Bra Tops

It can get pretty hot in a room full of dancers all vying for there own space to dance. That’s why a fun and comfortable bra top is a good starting place for your outfit-of-the-day. Something brightly colored can catch the choreographer’s eye, then all you have to do is let your personality shine. But no matter the color you pick, the most important thing is that you feel great in your clothes. So whether that is a black bra top or a yellow one, you can feel free to dance your heart out. If you need any inspiration for what bra tops to wear you can click here.  



Boy Shorts

Boy shorts can also be a great way to combat the heat of the room as well as show off your personality. A plain top and brightly colored shorts can just as easily bring attention your way as a matching top and bottom can. It’s all about showing off your lines and showing off your confidence.  For some boy shorts click here


Let’s say that you don’t want to show that much skin. That’s okay too! A great pair of legging can go a long way in terms of comfort. Let your personality shine through everything you wear and you’re sure to make a great impression to everyone you meet. You can find leggings and dance pants here



Let’s not forget your feet here. What you put on your feet is very important in a convention. Usually, the classes are on a carpet so please whatever you do don’t dance barefoot. Some people will just wear socks, but jazz shoes are a good alternative. The footwear will depend on the class you are taking, so plan ahead and make sure you have all the shoes you need for all the classes. That means pack your tap shoes, jazz shoes, hip-hop shoe… you know what just to be on the safe side, pack all the shoes.


Now, this isn’t part of your outfit but it is important. You need something to keep your shoes, hairpins, coverups, water bottle, and other accessories that you brought all together. Too many times things are lost or left behind because they fell out of a bag. So make sure that whatever bag you bring is big enough for all your things. If you don’t have a bag click here to find some. 


More important than what you choose to wear is continuing to wear it throughout the day. If you choose to wear a blue tank top keep the tank top on, even if it gets hot. Choreographers end up associating the dancer with what they are wearing so if you take away the tank top, the Choreographers will likely forget what they thought of your dancing because they didn’t see Blue Tank Top after the water break. Overall no matter what you wear, wear it with confidence, a smile, and let your dancing do the rest.
