Gifts for dancers that will improve her skills

A Turnboard – Even though this is called a Ballet turnboard…this is a great skill builder for dancers of all types. It can help them with spotting, balance, turns and core strength.

Here is a video of the turnboard in action, amazing!


Theraband stretch/resistance bands – These bands will help your dancer with flexibility and strength, as a bonus they are very small and easy to store.



Ballet Stretch Band- This 1 and a half inch wide band has a 90 inch circumference making it ideal for many difficult dance stretches.  It includes access to special stretch training video so you can be sure your dancer is doing the stretches safely.

This Arch Genie Foot stretcher will help with toe pointing and en pointe ballet development. It makes my feet hurt just to look at it.


Ballet Booties: If you have a dancer you know the ordeal of taking on and off dance shoes to protect them. These boots allow you to keep dance shoes ON while walking outside (with the exception of tap shoes) and are also useful for keeping feet warm in between dance classes. As an added bonus some dancers use them around their house as slippers!

Essentials Gifts for Dancers

These might be things your dancer already has, but essentials are made to be updated. Even if she already has one of these an adorable replacement will always be welcomed!

Drawstring Dance Bag: An essential for hauling around dance gear. I love this personalized one from ShopSimpleJoy on Etsy (and your dancer will love it too!). If you need a bigger bag, there are also duffel styles you can personalize.

Water Bottle: Just because it is an important part of dancing doesn’t mean that it can’t be cute.

This “H TUTU O” water bottle is TOO TOO cute (see what I did there?) It even has a spot to write your dancer’s name.

This water bottle has a statement on it that serious dancers will totally agree with. And it is also cute.

Dance wall art:  I love the quote on this printable wall art! After purchasing it you download it, then print and frame it yourself, or have it printed at a photo center (think Sam’s or Costco). You can purchase it from the Etsy shop MrLoveStoned.

Jewelry Gifts for Dancers

You can’t go too far wrong with teens and jewelry. Here are two different styles that dancers will love.


Bangle Dance Bracelet  This one is for ballerinas specifically.

This Just Dance Message cuff is more simple but lovely! Also available in gold and rose gold.

Pampering Gifts for Dancers

Sore feet is not an uncommon problem for dancers. Here are some soothing ideas to pamper their tired toes!

Peppermint Lotion  Have you tried peppermint lotion before? It does an amazing tingly cooling thing and feels amazing!

Foot and Ankle Hot and Cold Gel Pack This can either be used hot or cold depending on if feet are sore or injured. This would be great to have on hand!

Dancer Gifts to Inspire

Taking Flight biography: Have you heard the story of Michaela DePrince? I first heard about her in the ballet documentary “First Position.” She was an orphan born in Sierra Leone, who was tormented because of a skin condition. She saw a picture of an ballet dancer en pointe and knew she wanted to be a dancer. After being adopted by an American couple she was able to pursue her dream of dancing and has accomplished SO much! I love to encourage kids by showing them amazing examples of people with grit.  This book would be an inspirational gift for dancers!

Another inspirational dancer is Misty Copeland…she has a book that would be an inspirational read as well!
