Holiday gift-giving can be tricky, but it's easy to buy an appropriate present for your dance teacher. She has given you the gift of dance, so giving her a dance-related item for the holidays can be a beautiful gesture. Dancers and dance teachers need a variety of specialised clothing and shoes in order to dance their best, and a well-thought out dance gift is sure to make your teacher pirouette with joy.


Dance clothing is always a welcome gift for your dance teacher. If you know your teacher's clothing size, give her a leotard or dance T-shirt in one of her favourite colours. If you're not sure of her size, buy her a fun, brightly coloured pair of leg warmers, a shawl or a ballet skirt.

Treats For Feet

Dancers work hard, but no part of the dancer works harder than her feet. Give your dance teacher a treat for her feet and her tootsies will thank you. A foot massager, scented foot lotion, a pedicure kit or moisturising socks are all great options.

Hair Accessories

Dancers spend a lot of time and effort keeping their hair out of their faces, and your dance teacher is no exception. Buy her a pretty comb, hair clip or bun cover, and she'll have a flyaway-free year.

Dance Magazine Subscription

A subscription to a dance-related magazine is a gift that your teacher will enjoy all year long. Many dance magazines will allow you to enclose a personal note with your subscription, and your teacher will appreciate your gift every time she receives a new issue in the mail.

A Dance Store Gift Certificate

In many cases, a gift token can feel like a "cop-out." But dance teachers need highly specialised shoes and equipment. It's almost impossible to buy your dance teacher the perfect pointe shoes or exactly the right taps. A gift token to a dance store will allow your teacher to buy the shoes or clothing that works best for her (and that means you're getting her exactly what she wants).
