Skirts, shirts, warm-ups, bags–I could go on and on. CDT even has a great new drawstring bag that is perfect for storing dance shoes. Need a great stocking stuffer? Fuzzy socks! Nothing is better after a long day of dance than putting on a pair of nice soft, fuzzy socks to show your feet some love.

Dancers love to perform, but they also enjoying watching others perform. Watching other performing artists in their element can be a great learning experience for dancers as well as inspire them to continue to grow in their dancing. Consider getting your dancers tickets to a dance production or musical. Chattanooga has many great performing companies stop in town throughout the whole year. It’s definitely worth checking out the Patten Series at UTC and the new Broadway Series at the Tivoli.
Dancers are always looking to improve and grow in their craft, and nothing helps them more than private lessons. They are a great way for dancers to get the extra personalized attention they need to help their technique reach the next level. Private lessons can also increase a dancer’s self-confidence since they will be getting one on one feedback and encouragement.
I hope these gift ideas help you find the perfect gift for your dancer this holiday season. Happy shopping!
