One aspect of a dancers life that often gets overlooked but is incredibly important is the dance bag. Think of it as your survival kit holding all the items you'll need before during and, after your dance class or performance. So what should you have in your dance bag? Lets go through all the must have items together.
Leotards & Extra Clothing
The item that comes to mind is a leotard. Our collection offers a range of comfortable and high quality leotards that will make you shine on the dance floor. It's always an idea to carry a set in your bag because you never know when you might need a quick change. Additionally having a pair of tights and some cover up or warm up gear is highly advisable.
From Ballet Flats, to Jazz Shoes
The type of footwear you choose can greatly impact your dance routine. Depending on the style of dance you're doing different shoes may be necessary. For ballet it's essential to have ballet flats or pointe shoes. Jazz dancers should have jazz shoes while tap dancers require tap shoes. To keep them in condition it's an idea to store each type of shoe separately in compartments or bags.
A dancers hair should always be tidy and out of their face during performances. It's important to have hair ties, bobby pins and a hairbrush on hand. If you're performing, using hairspray or gel can help ensure your hairstyle stays intact throughout the performance.
First Aid Supplies
It's always wise to be prepared for accidents that may occur while dancing. Having a first aid kit with band aids, antiseptic wipes and pain relievers can be extremely helpful in situations.
Snacks & Hydration
To maintain energy levels during practice sessions or performances it's beneficial to have healthy snacks like nutrition bars or fruits on hand. Additionally don't forget to bring a water bottle, for hydration.
Reusable water bottles that come with built in filters are a way to make sure you always have access, to drinking water no matter where you are.
** Sewing Kit**; This comes in handy during those unexpected moments when a quick stitch can save the day.
**Notebook and Pen**; Keep these on hand to jot down choreography notes or any insights that come up during your class or performance.
**Music and Headphones**; Whether it's for a last minute rehearsal or to unwind having your favorite tunes can make a difference.
