Looking for a gift for the dancer in your life? No need to worry! Here is The Ballet Barre’s list of the top 5 gifts that will make any dancer leap for joy.
Even when her pointe shoes are tucked away in a dance bag, any ballerina can be found practicing her tendues and jetes around the house. So why not keep pointe shoes on your feet all the time? These pointe shoe socks from Discount Dance Supply are the perfect gift for the 24/7 ballerina. Or, for double duty, she can wear them over her real pointe shoes to keep her toes pretty in pink!
