The 2020 Dancer Gift Guide

We are heading into the last part of the year, which also happens to be the most festive part of the year! In preparation for the holidays, I've asked the Studio A community to share some dance-related products that are on their wishlists this year, and they did not disappoint!

Keep scrolling to see 10 items that'll make the perfect gift for any dancer in your life.

With a full holiday shop, Luckyleo Dancewear is your one stop shop for all of your custom leotard needs. For anyone looking to accessorize in the studio, they also have skirts, headbands, and face masks.

With a color for every audition and class, the original "slinky skirts" by NYC-based dancer Abigail Mentzer are taking over dance studios everywhere. Be sure to follow AMD's Instagram page for exclusive discounts and giveaways.

Created by NYC performer Wendy Watt, Curtain Call Cosmetics features hand-mixed colors inspired by your favorite Broadway characters. Each product is cruelty free, vegan, 10 Free, and Made in the USA. 5% of each purchase supports Beagle Freedom Project, a non-profit that rescues animals used in experimental research.

Made especially for dancers, this Bloch face mask (available in 6 colors!) will keep you safe in the studio, while still allowing you to breathe. PLUS, Bloch is donating 10% of all face mask sales to registered charities supporting performing arts professionals during COVID-19. It's a win-win!

Update your casting profiles with a fresh new set of headshots. Choosing a photographer is a personal choice, but here are a few recommended by the Studio A community: @maljpetphoto, @sub_urban_photo, @justinpatterson, @billybcreative, and @corinnelouiephoto.

This lightweight ballet barre from Vita Vibe is the perfect upgrade for your at-home ballet class. Freestanding or wall-mounted; aluminum or wood - the choice is yours!

This ring light from Lipety is the perfect addition to your self-tape supply kit. With a built-in phone holder, dimmer, and USB cord, you'll look your best in all the virtual submissions of 2021.

Roll Recovery's R8 massage roller is a DIY deep tissue massage. This compact, FDA-approved device will help you recover from your workouts and dance classes in no time.

Practice your 16-bar cut without disrupting your roommates or neighbors. This Belt Box sound dampener muffles your voice up to 30dB, making your loudest notes sound like a whisper. It's also waterproof for all you shower singers out there!

Is one of your new year's resolutions to take more dance classes? Whether the classes are online or in person, a Broadway Dance Center (or any studio!) gift card will always come in handy.
