8 Holiday Gift Ideas for DancersT
is the season for secret Santas, gift exchanges and stocking stuffers! Good thing we Rockettes have done your holiday shopping for you—at least for that oh-so-special dancer in your life. From a water bottle that also doubles as a foam roller to cozy sweatshirts perfect for layering over dance clothes, here are our favorite holiday gift ideas:
“The ladies in my dressing room have gotten me obsessed with holiday candles from Bath & Body Works. I received one last year as my secret Santa gift, and I have bought them ever since. My favorite scent is the fresh balsam!” —Rockette Brittany W.
Lightweight Fleece Hoodie
Whether you’re snuggled up in this hoodie on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate or heading to the studio for a workout, this breathable gem is perfect for layering over dance clothes. Bonus? The thumbholes help keep your sleeves in place and your hands nice and toasty.
Foam Roller-Water Bottle
“Dehydrated and sore all at the same time? Why not tackle both issues at once! This water bottle does not only help us dancers stay hydrated, but it also doubles as a foam roller to help rid our bodies of the knots and kinks. Talk about multi-tasking!” —Rockette Jessie C.
Give your dancer’s feet a major break after a long day rehearsing and performing with these these super cozy sherpa slippers. They’re the perfect accessory for lazy weekends, snow days and tired tootsies.
“With a busy schedule and lots of running around, it’s easy to find yourself in a pickle with a nearly dead iPhone. This gift is perfect for pretty much anyone because let’s be real, the world is only getting busier! You’ll be the envy of the party with this as your holiday gift exchange present!” —Rockette Karen R.
ClassPass E-Gift Card
“What dance or fitness fanatic wouldn’t love the gift of fitness that keeps on giving? Whether you’re buying for a dancer, yogi or general sweat enthusiast, an e-gift card to ClassPass (available in over 39 cities!) will have them covered.” —Rockette Kristin J.
Horseshoe-Textured Hair Pins
“These hair pins can definitely work for anyone, but as a dancer with thick hair, they are a match made in heaven. The beautiful, brass hair pins are functional and can easily hold your hair in a bun, classic Rockette French twist or your favorite updo for holiday parties.” —Rockette Alicia L.
“As dancers, our bodies are our livelihood and we push them to the limits on a daily basis. What a better gift to give the dancer in your life than a spa day! Anything spa-related will leave your favorite dancer physically and mentally ready to take on the rest of the holiday season.” —Rockette Amanda M.
