1. Dance Skirts
Give a fashionable dance gift this year with one of our newly developed Move Dance floral ballet skirts. Choose the black version for versatile wearing, the navy version for some subtle colour and the grey for some winter sparkle.
2. Sewing Kits
3. Ballet Shoes
Treat a ballet dancer to a new pair of ballet shoes this Christmas - we're sure they're going to need them! Our prima pick is of course our specially developed Move Dance Light Pro ballet shoes (left below) for dance students and pros. You can get a more durable pair here with our Move Dance Pro ballet shoes (right below) if the dancer you're gifting prefers a thicker feel.
4. Dance Bags
Pick a dance bag that's small and afforable, but will actually be loved by a dancer to store all their little bits and bobs like those many hair pins! Our prima pick is the Ballet Rosa velour bag.
Looking for gifts for gym lovers that will really make them smile this year? Our Christmas gifts selection has training some gorgeous leotards to make an extra special present this year, along with a few other fun bits of kit.
We’ve picked out our personal favourite sparkly and colourful print from the new Alegra Gym Limited Edition collection that we bring out each winter season. It comes in three different styles, meaning that a gymnast could have one of the tank versions for training and the long sleeved version for comps! Our top pick from this print is the all-over-printed (AOP) leo because it's irresistibly trendy for gym.
Read more about the full Alegra Gym Limited Edition leotards collection on the blog if you're looking for a different look for your gymnastics leotard.
This cool gym brand have brought a few slogan hoodies and T-shirts out that are comfy for gym training or wearing outside of class. This one's our fave...
Everyone loves a bit of indulgence around Christmas time, so spoil the dancer in your life with some premium gifts for their main present this year. We’ve asked our dancer friends to shop our Christmas Gift Guide 2018 and added their favourite items to this wishlist to inspire your Christmas shopping.
Dancer Lucy is holding the gorgeous Skye doll in this blog's feature image! Skye is love at first sight for all little dancers who we've introduced to her so far. She's their very own mini me, with three different hair colour options and ballerina tutu outfits to harmonise. Match Skye's outfit to your little dancer's very own with Bloch's Kai tutus.
Bloch bring out a gorgeous seasonal collection every year for the winter period. This year, Bloch Holiday features decadent checked mesh, opulent styles and indulgent colours. A little bit over the price a dancer might want to spend on themselves, a leotard from the Bloch Holiday collection makes the perfect gift. Here’s our favourite - it comes in 3 colours!
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or the dancer in your life (or even any human being full stop), you NEED a pair of Bloch booties. A pioneer in the world of dance, Bloch’s booties are irresistibly comforting for tired dancing feet but also help keep feet and ankles warm before and during class. We haven’t met a dancer of any age yet who doesn’t love them - whether they wear them as slippers around the house or during dance class, this is a crowd-pleasing gift that suits everyone.
Ever a favourite, every dancer and gymnast needs a stylish yet reliable to get them through each dance school year. The dance students we chatted with have got plenty of big, bulky and scuffed looking holdalls that they’ve carted between classes for years, so it’s no surprise that they’ve picked some of our more premium bags for their Christmas wishlist 2018. Coming in under £30, these gifts will hint at luxury without costing you too much.
Dance Warm-Ups, Knitwear & Layers
Warm-ups and knitwear are always a cosy treat for a dancer, but especially valuable around the colder Christmas months. Our dance warm-ups and knitwear range is huge, so we've picked out a couple of favourites for you here.
