Our Holiday Wish List

December 12, 2012

The holidays are in full swing, and if you’re not quite done with your shopping list, don’t worry—we’ve got you’ve covered! We scoured the web for presents both you and your dance friends will love. And if you’re still stumped, check out our guide to the gifts on every dancer’s wishlist. (It features more than 50 fab items!)

Oh, these Just For Kix boots are supposed to be worn in the studio? Whatever, I’m wearing them out, too! The style is punky, the sequins make ’em flashy and they’re comfy enough for hip hop dancing followed by a day of shopping—they are my dream shoes. Plus, we’re giving away a pair! —Alison Feller, editor in chief


This ballet slipper stocking from Discount Dance Supply may just be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Fill it with dance-themed goodies—and candy!—and it’s the perfect gift for any dancer. —Rachel Zar, managing editor





Every time our fashion editor Michael unpacks a box of beautiful new leotards for a Dance Spirit photo shoot, I whine about how leos are so much cooler now than they were when I was dancing. Case in point: This beauty by Bloch, with its cute little braid detail and sheer cap sleeves. My 16-year-old self is drooling. —Margaret Fuhrer, associate editor



There’s nothing better than a great pair of booty shorts, and I’m obsessed with these shorts from Capezio. Between the perfectly stretchy material and thick, low-rise waistband, they’re the comfiest booty shorts I own—great for the studio and the gym! —Michael Anne Bailey, assistant/fashion editor
