Gifts for teachers of adult students.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 

 

I am a mature adult working on my ISTS intermediate ballet during lockdown! I have various health issues and my teacher has been so supportive and helpful during this difficult time. She’s working so hard I wanted to get her a gift but something special. I don’t know too much about her personal life so it’s a bit difficult. Most ideas online seem to be for kids to give their teachers so I thought I would ask you guys for your help. Much appreciated xx

Do they have a garden? There are rose varieties named after famous ballet dancers - Anna Pavlova and Darcy Bussell spring to mind but I’m sure there would be others!

I have gratefully received a bottle wine from pupils over many years.  The advantage is that it doesn't have to be consumed immediately but can be saved for an appropriate occasion.

On another recent thread in this section.about gifts (I think it was about gifts for male dancers) there was a lovely candle company with some dance themed labels scented candles that look lovely! Based on Eakring in Nottinghamshire I recall....

My order from Ballet4Boyz came very quickly and was very well packaged.  It is a present for a friend.

I bought a Darcey Bussell for a ballet friend at Christmas and it has just produced its first bloom. You might find that the plants are only available at certain times of year. Good luck in your search.

David Austin Roses sell Darcey Bussell. It’s a prolific dark red, almost burgundy colour rose. We have two in our garden.

David Austin has the best roses in my experience.  The quality and service are both excellent.  I got my father their Ballerina rose https://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/ballerina which is absolutely beautiful.  I should say my father is not a ballerina but as it was from me and I love doing ballet, it seemed apt and Darcey Bussell needs more sun than their garden gets. 

 

Danse de feu https://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/danse-de-feu is another of their dance themed ones which is beautiful but it's a climber so it needs more space and a climbing frame.
