WorldWideBallet Warmup Wear

the best trash bag warmup wear you can buy! these are the "designer version" of trash bags in the dance community. the quality is outstanding!

Special Leotard

such as a: Custom Design | Luckyleo | Yumiko | or Elevé

...something special that's not your average leotard is always so exciting!


my favorite water bottle for dance class. keeps water cool and I love the straw attachment lid. makes it so much easier to drink water throughout class.

A Ballet Education Ballet Planner

A Ballet Education Technique Tracker

for the dancer looking to take their technique to the next level. these planners are the perfect gift!

Blogilates Fit Planner

my favorite fitness planner. if your dancer (or you) is really into fitness and wellness, this is the journal for you! love the prompts and design of this journal.

Rubia Wear Warmups

more legendary warmup pieces. these sell out really quick! they are so popular in the bunhead community... so stylish and comfy!

Josefina's Flats

(Misty Collection)

(Moscow Collection)

obsessed with these flats, they are the perfect way to take a bit of ballet into your everyday wear. they are chic, feminine, comfortable, and perfect with any outfit. They also come in multiple colors. Josefina's also has more ballet inspired collections that are stunning, and a wonderful woman owned business to support.

lululemon Dance Pant

I can't express how much I love these pants enough. they are one of the best pants for warming up and the most comfortable to dance in.

lululemon Define Jacket

favorite warmup jacket. ever. so comfortable and fitted, combined with being lightweight and warm.

lululemon Speed Up Short

my favorite shorts by lululemon. they have the best fit and look, love to wear them to contemporary and modern classes.

Epsom Salts

ultimate gift for sore muscles. you can never have enough epsom salt!

New Pointe Shoes

if the dancer you're shopping for is en pointe.. new pointe shoes are the ultimate gift. but if you are unaware of their size and style of shoes, a Discount Dance Gift Card is always a great idea.

Foam Roller

always a great gift for warming up before class, stretching, and getting out the knots.

HyperRice HyperVolt Gun

amazing investment. this is THE BEST. gets all the deep sore spots and knots.

Gaynor Minden Dance Bag

my favorite dance bag ever! so much room and easy portability.

Dance Photoshoot

putting some money on a gift card or aside for a photoshoot is a great gift that can be extremely handy in building up a portfolio. just be sure to find a photographer who specializes in dance and is someone you trust!

Go Macro Bars

a great stocking stuffer! I'm obsessed with these bars and always have them on hand for in between classes and performances.

Marley Floor

Portable Dance Floor

especially during COVID-19 a lot of dancers have been dancing from home. gifting a dancer with a portable dance floor or Marley floor provides them with a safe way to practice in their space at home, and would be a super thoughtful gift during these times.

Ballet Barre

again during COVID-19 a lot of dancers have been dancing from home. a ballet barre is a super thoughtful and incredible gift!
