The art of movement is more than a hobby or profession, it's a passion. Anyone who knows a dancer understands just how much the craft becomes an integral part of everyday life. So what to get that dancer for a special occasion? There are so many great gifts that celebrate the art of dance, whether you are shopping for the holidays, a birthday, or the perfect gift to commemorate a big performance.

From jazz to hip-hop, contemporary to classical, every genre of dance should be celebrated with a fun gift. Photography lovers might love inspirational images taken by dance photographers like Jordan Matter and the NYC Dance Project. Or, if you also have a fashionista on your hands, a funky pair of dance leggings, hand-knit leg warmers, or a trinket dish to hold accessories might do the trick. Take a look at our curated list of gifts for dancers to find the perfect present, whether buying gear for a budding ballerina or an accomplished contemporary dancer.

These 30 creative dance gift ideas will keep the favorite dancer in your life twirling with delight.
