These ballet gifts are not just for the ballet aficionado but for anybody who loves dance.
Even those with two left feet will find the gift ideas for dancers and dance fans below adorable.
There are several ballet Christmas gifts that are particularly suited to the holiday season, gifts for ballet teachers as a little end of term 'thank you', gifts for ballroom dancers to enjoy, and gifts for adult dancers.
There's also a selection of our favorite dance movies to provide all your non-dancer friends with a point of inspiration – enough to get them tapping their toes, anyway.
It's difficult to buy the wrong dance gift for any fan of dance or ballet lover; most people who love dance, love most dances – they have an appreciation for dance styles other than the one they've studied or attend classes in.
Hip hop dancers know the benefits of having ballet-level stamina and jumping action. Ballet enthusiasts are usually right at home in modern dance, the modern dance posture check is loved by latin dancers and so it goes on.
So for once, your chance of buying the 'wrong' gift diminishes.
No gifts for dancers list would be complete without a contribution from the Royal Ballet. The diaries will give your dance friend a year-round ballet gift. And the Dancers book contains some absolutely wonderful behind the scenes photos of the Royal Ballet in rehearsal and performance, and is a firm favorite with the DanceClass.com staff. It's worth the price for the single photo of Claire Calvert alone.
These are just the cutest dance shoes that will be loved and appreciated by not only dancers but yoga, pilates and in fact any workout enthusiast, so you can't really go wrong here. Just make sure you get the sizing right so read up on the comments about fit to make sure you're on the right track.
One of the easiest gifts for dancers is more dance wear - we can never have enough. And the happy thing here is that you can be almost certain that the legwarmers will fit the dancer in your life.
And of course dance wear isn't just for inside the studio. These two dance inspired items with thrill dancers and non-dancers alike with their ultra feminine look.
We couldn't resist these fun little pieces, perfect for dance-mad teens and tweens. Just check sizing and refer to the comments for information that other customers have provided to make sure you get the right fit.
Of course, our own DVDs make fabulous gifts for the person in your life who longs to dance but who will never pluck up the courage to go to a class.
Super affordable and of course easy to wrap for those of you who get into a tangle with gift papar and ribbons, DVDs are the perfect small dance gift. Below, we've just selected the few dance themed DVDs that should be in every dance fan's collection.
Yes, we really have slipped in The Adjustment Bureau onto our list of dance dvd gifts.
OK, so this isn't an obvious choice. It's not about dance, it's a sci-fi drama from a short story by Philip K Dick. However, Emily Blunt's character Elise is a professional modern dancer and we get to see some really wonderful modern dance sequences in her rehearsals. The choreography is beautiful and accessible even to those with absolutely no knowledge of the dance and sits comfortably within the story. So it's the ideal film to settle down and watch with a total non-dancer. It has enough content to please the guys and girls equally and is an engaging drama, gorgeously filmed and with one of the best scores we've ever heard. It's our top pick for the DVD that'll please dance fans and dance-o-phobes alike.
So there you go - amongst our suggestions you should be able to find a gift, or at least some inspiration, for the dance lover in your life.
All that remains is for us here at DanceClass.com to wish you a joyful and dance-filled festive season.
