For the Teacher - DV Holiday Gift Guides

Dance teachers are the heart and soul of the ballroom world. They are with you every step of your dance journey! Treat your teacher this season for all their long hours of hard work, dedication & expertise!

1. No Bad Hair Days

Dance teachers can attest, they’re a busy group of people, dancing their way from one lesson to the next! A fun hair accessory is a great gift for a dance teacher to put their hair up and stay glamorous the whole time!

Our Pick: Anthropologie Hair Accessories

2. Muscle & Tension Release

Instructors are on their feet dancing all day long.  After hours of moving, this Alo Magnesium Spray is sure to ease any aches or pains. This ultimate post-teaching hero - with soothing magnesium, arnica and aromatherapy to promote calm and relaxed muscles. 

Our Pick: Alo Magnesium Reset Spray

3. Refreshing Candle

For those evenings after a long day at the studio, everyone loves to relax! Grab your dance teacher a candle to enjoy at home. 

Our Pick: Capri Blue Candles 

4. For the Teacher that Dances "Around the Clock"

We know we're punny 😜 Who needs numbers when you can use dancing to mark the time?

Our Pick: Ballroom Dance Clock 

5. Comfy Clothes for the Off-Days

Ballroom dance teachers are sleek, classy & stylish but when it's time to relax they want nothing but comfort!  A loungewear set is a perfect gift for any hardworking instructor. Not to mention, loungewear sets are great for traveling and hanging out in the airport!

Our Pick: Alo Loungewear

6. Foot Massager

Being on your feet all day can really take a toll on the body. Happy feet lead to better posture and mobility when dancing – a dance teacher would surely appreciate such a thoughtful and practical holiday gift!

Our Pick: Nekteck Shiatsu Foot Massager

8. Portable Muscle Massager

Along with their feet aching by the end of the day, ballroom instructors might need a quick & efficient way to release tension all throughout the body as well. A Theragun Mini is a portable, efficient and effective way to relax tight muscles or prepare the body as a warm up before teaching all day.

Our Pick: Theragun Mini

8. Cozy Socks

We think that these cozy socks would be a great addition to a candle or loungewear set for your favorite teacher or maybe even a stocking stuffer!

Our Pick: Sherpa Ballerina Slipper 

9. Simple Modern Classic Insulated Tumbler

The best studio water bottle, complete with a straw lid for cool drinks (gotta stay hydrated!) or a flip lid for warm drinks (sometimes you just need a coffee or tea at the studio!). This tumbler is awesome at keeping cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, and comes in many colors, so you can find the perfect color for your teacher!

Our Pick: Simple Modern Tumbler
