What is in a Dance Bag

August 28, 2015

 

My dance bag has changed since I was in a ballet company to the life as a teacher and freelancer, but not by much. As a dancer or a physical person one should be prepared for anything, the realities of life will not give you what you need; you have to find a way of fixing those issues. Dancers get bruises, blisters, ingrown toes nails, tight to pulled muscles and everything beyond and in between. So here is what a dancer should carry in there dance bag to be prepared for anything that life throws at them.

 

Hair:

-Brush or comb                         -Pins of all kinds (bobby and hair)                                                                      --Nets                                            -spray bottle of water or hair spray   

-Flower or bow to feel extra special

 

 

Pointe/Ballet shoes and Feet:

-stich kit or dental floss                      -lighter                                    -extra ribbons and elastics                         -toe tape (medical/masking)              -band aides                           -second skin  -oral gel(to numb toes)       -Tinactin(corns)                                    -golf ball(s)                            -toe nail clippers

-Preperation H (bring down swelling when one cannot ice feet) 

-scisscors

 

 

Body:

-tennis balls                                  -Thera Band           -The Stick/rolling pin           -mineral ice/tigerbalm         -arnica (bruises)                           -KT tape for shin splints                                      -leg warmers

-onesie/full body warm-ups      -socks/booties                                        

 

 

 

Extra:

When in audition or performance season a dancer should always carry some light make up and stud earrings to throw on if forgotten. 

 

Snacks!!! Sometimes eating a full meal cannot happen when on the go or in between rehearsals. Having snacks will save you if you forgot your meal or cannot dance on  a full stomach. 

 

Water!!! Even more important than food: water. Dancers and those who are physically active need to keep rehydrating inbetween and after physical excersise.

 

I hope this helped and will inspire you to carry around some extra band aids and water to stay fit and fabulous!
