It is always tricky buying gifts for people at Christmas, especially if you're a non-dancer!!!
Do you have a sister, friend or daughter that is passionate about dance?
In this post we´ve put together some of the most popular gifts, ranging from flamenco skirts, to accessories, along with Flamencista suggestions to avoid disappointments this festive season..
It's vitally important that dancing shoes and dance costumes fit perfectly, because if they're too tight they'll restrict movement, and if they're too loose they may snag, fall off or cause accidents.
So unless you know your dancer's exact size, it's wise to steer clear of buying flamenco shoes, dresses or skirts. Don't worry, there are plenty of other choices!
If however, know the exact size, you can find the perfect flamenco shoe in a variation of sizes, colours and fabrics, or you can customise it the way you want...

If you're looking for something low cost for a female flamenco dancer, a good option is something for her hair. You may think the obvious choice is a traditional Spanish peineta (hair comb), but not all dancers wear them - and teachers sometimes won't let students wear them, because they are usually dancing in a large group, and a comb falling on the ground can cause accidents.
Flower slides can be pinned more securely to the hair, so they're a more popular choice for students and can look gorgeous, especially if you buy two or three in toning colours.
A fan is another clever choice, because fans get damaged easily so most dancers need to replace them regularly. You will need to find a specialist flamenco shop to buy a proper flamenco fan. You may see fans for sale elsewhere, but they are usually either Chinese (which doesn't open and close smoothly), or they are too small. A real flamenco fan is big - as long as your forearm. Smaller ones are just for display on her dressing table, or for use on a hot day!
Tip: try to find out what colours her costumes are, so you can pick a fan in a suitable shade.

Flamenco dancers do not wear necklaces or bracelets - but they love pins and brooches, as they can decorate a plain leotard or worn outside the studio on a scarf or coat...
