Ballet Bag

Every ballerina needs a ballet bag to hold her dance shoes and hair supplies. They usually range in price from $15 to $30. Pay attention to size when buying dance bags. Younger kids usually don't need to pack a lot of items when they go to dance class. Older dancers will generally need a bigger bag.

Ballet Related T-shirts

T-shirts are often inexpensive gifts and it is easy to find ballet related t-shirts for younger girls. This is an especially good choice if you're looking for a gift in the $10 to $20 price range.

The doll comes with 27 pieces of mix and match clothes and shoes. It has a total of six outfits. It comes with a box to keep all the pieces neat and arranged. This item costs around $30, but it is a very sturdy toy. The pieces are made of thick wood and aren't easily damaged.

The Nucracker Illustrated Books

There are several beautifully illustrated books based on the story of The Nutcracker aimed at different age groups. The Nutcracker is a popular ballet that is widely performed during the Christmas season, so a book can be a great holiday gift. The original Nutcracker book was written by E. T. A. Hoffmann in 1816. It was titled The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The Nutcracker ballet was based on the book. The score was written by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
