Ballroom

A great accessory for the ballroom dancer on your list are rhinestone hair accessories seen below, available for purchase along with many other styles here! 

Contemporary

Speed wraps are great for training in any genre, but contemporary dancers will appreciate them for the speed and muscle definition they’ll start to see while training in them.  They’re available for purchase from El Toro Training, and you can see them in action below as demonstrated by our friends at Expressenz.

A good day in contemporary class can make your dancer’s IT bands, back, and calves pretty sore.  Muscle rollers are a great way for the dancer on your list to work out their pains independently. The one pictured below is by Suffolk dance, available in pink and purple here! 

Tap

Sometimes tappers have a hard time finding a surface to tap on if they don’t have a dedicated space for it available 24/7.  They sell tap boards here, which are portable, lightweight, and can transform virtually any space into a tap space. It’s available in two different sizes here, and below you can see it in action!

If you’re looking to really treat the tapper in your life, consider gifting them a pair of custom tap shoes, like these from Capezio!

Hip-hop

If your hip-hopper is unique themselves, consider giving them something unique to dress up in!  A custom outfit would definitely help them stand out in a competition, and there are so many websites that can help your dancer come up with their perfect style, like The Lineup! 

Many of the website links offer 2-day shipping, but don’t wait too long, the holidays will be over before you know it! Happy shopping!
