Looking for a way to warm hearts – and toes – this holiday season? CDS has some great ideas to share, and a great sale* to help you keep within that frugal dancer budget too! We’re kicking off (pun intended of course) our late night sale Friday December 15, and staying open until 9pm so you can have extra time to shop your heart out! Here’s some gifts that any dancer (and even some non-dancer folks) will be happy to find under the tree. Let’s work our way up.

Warm toes = Happy Feet!

Bloch & Russian Pointe booties; kid’s on far right

It’s truly winter out there, and everyone deserves to have toasty feet. Indulge that special someone (or yourself) with a pair of warm and cozy booties. Whether puffy or fleecy, these booties can be worn over soft ballet slippers, pointe shoes, or bare feet for barre or warming up. You may find them making their way out of your dance bag and serving double duty when you’re relaxing at home. The non dancer in your life might also appreciate a pair-remember all those hours mom spent taking you to dance class and sitting through recitals?

Full Body Warmth – bottom

                Wear Moi  for dance, yoga, lounging


Your bottom half is feeling kinda jealous right now, hm? Now that the feet are feeling it let’s consider Wear Moi’s warm up pants. Cozy and comfortable, with several fun color combos, guaranteed to keep you warm in the chilliest studio! Kinda wonderful for relaxing in too.

Bloch’s shrug and sweater are great for studio or streetwear

It’s time for the ratty old sweatshirt to hit the trash! Treat your dancer’s top half to a sleek shrug or “jumper” (sweater to us non-Anglophiles). Bloch’s shrug is snug while still allowing for movement; their Orion knit jumper is super flattering and covers the torso for extra warmth. Either one is stylish enough to move out of the studio and onto the street-pair them with a t shirt, jeans or a simple dress and you’re ready to go.
