The Best Dance Gifts To Give This Holiday Season

Updated: Jan 9


It's that time of year again — gift-giving season! What do you get for the dance enthusiast in your life? We are here to help with a few suggestions for the holidays. There is something on this list that will appeal to all generations of dance fans, so take a gander at some ideas I've prepared for all of you!


1. Jenna Dewan:

Jenna Dewan is delivering us two delicious dance shows this season, Flirty Dancing and Soundtrack. If you want to get to know the dancer-turned-actress-and-TV-host better, she released a new book, Gracefully You: Finding Beauty and Balance in the Everyday, which is a deeply personal look at her recent journey.


Price: $17.40


Pro tip: There is a $6.09 coupon at Amazon for additional savings.


2. Danskin:

Now that I am back on a much-needed exercise regimen, I joined up with Yazing and Danskin to become an ambassador for the dance and fitness line. They have everything you need for your dance, exercise and athleisure needs... or if you are like me, all-the-time wear.


Pro tip: You can get 15% off your entire purchase by signing up for the Danskin email.


3. Bald Ballerina

If you are looking for a gift where proceeds go to a great cause, look no further than Bald Ballerina. Maggie Kudirka, who has metastatic breast cancer, utilizes the funds from her personal shop to help defray costs of her monthly treatments. One of my favorite items in her store is the pointe shoe Pop Socket. It's a conversation starter for every dance fan.


Price: $10


4. High Strung: Free Dance:

If you want to add a dance film to your library, check out High Strung: Free Dance. With choreography by Tyce Diorio and fun cameos from Phillip Chbeeb, Mackenzie Dustman and Desmond Richardson, dance fans will fall in love with this well-written story.


Price: $14.99 DVD, $19.99 Blu-ray


Pro tip: The movie is available on pre-order at Amazon. It will be released Feb. 4. 2020.


5. Dance Events:

There is nothing better than getting a hard-to-please family member the experience of dance. Besides the annual tradition of The Nutcracker, you could offer up tickets to the Dancing With the Stars Tour, a Broadway musical or even the big Los Angeles International Dance Festival benefit with your favorite stars from DWTS, So You Think You Can Dance and World of Dance on April 25, 2020.


Pro tip: Use Rakuten for 5% back and coupon codes to Ticketmaster. You will get a $10 bonus for using my referral link.


If you don't find a gift on this lift for your favorite dance friend, check out my Amazon page with other recommended items. If you make a purchase using the link included, we may earn a small commission.
