Yes, it is that time of year once again. Whether you are a student who wants to pick up something special for your dance teacher, or a dancer buying a gift for a friend, it can be hard to find just the right thing. Here are some suggestions to help get you started:
ABT has autographed shoes for sale on their site. These would make a great gift for a dancer or balletomane. Both men’s and women’s shoes are available.
NYCB has calendars, bags, books and CDs for sale through their online store.
HD Wear is a cutting-edge t-shirt company that offers fresh new designs. Started by the creator or Ballet for Men and his girlfriend, you are sure to find something fun here.
The Joffrey has some nice items in their store, such as Nutcracker ornaments, Joffrey note cards and even a Joffrey water bottle.
My advertisers also have some products you may want to check out for dancers and dance teachers. Balletband is a great stretching aid, Up, Down & All Around is a smart choice for those who are just getting started with little ones, Dance Teacher Press has some great tools for teachers and Behind Barres offers some top-notch ballet class music.
I also have four Enesco Ballerina Statues for sale. Please send me an e-mail at info (at) catherineltully.com if you’d like to see the others not listed on the site.
