Choosing a gift for a girl you know who likes to dance can be difficult if you don't know much about the dance world. There are several types of gifts any female dancer would love, though, and some ideas can get you started. Gifts for a girl dancer can be given for a holiday, birthday or special event.

Dance Bag

A dance bag is typically a small tote or duffel bag that the dancer carries her leotards, dance clothes, dance shoes and hair accessories in. You can find special dance totes at any dance supply store, and they are often decorated with images of ballet shoes or tutus on the outside. Or, consider customising a plain tote with stencilled-on dance-themed images for a more personal touch.

Hair Accessories

Dancers who compete or perform in recitals often tie their hair up in elaborate dos. You can give a special girl some hair accessories that will help her shine on stage and keep her hair from falling in her face while she's moving and twirling. Scrunchies, barrettes, clips and ribbons can be placed in a gift bag and be given as one present.


Before a recital, young dancers will often crowd in a dressing room and apply their make-up and do their hair. Space can sometimes be limited, with all the girls clamouring for a spot at the mirror. Give a dancer her own portable mirror to ensure she always has a way to primp before a big show. You can purchase a plain plastic, handheld mirror and decorate it with glued-on sequins and beads for a glamorous gift.

Make-up Kit

Make-up application is important for dancers as they need to ensure their face isn't washed out when performing under stage lights. You can purchase a quality make-up kit from a make-up store or department store, giving your dancer a spot to keep all of her supplies in one spot. Make sure the kit has plenty of blush and vibrant lipsticks, as these show up well under the lights.
