How to: Pack a good dance bag

Picture of How to: Pack a good dance bag
Many dancers do the old "I might need it... chuck her in!" But this is how to pack a good dance bag. The bag below looks like my bag, but mine is purple. I usually take my own photos, but I am packing for a dance seminar so I don't have it here :(

Step 1: What do you do?

You first need to identify what you do. If you just do hip-hop, why are you packing tap shoes?

Step 2: The Essentials

For whatever you do, these are the essentials-
~ Sweat towel
~ Medical kit
~ After dance clothes (tracksuit or hoddie and pants)
~ After dance shoes (thongs or 'flip flops' as some call them)
~ Dance pants

These are the essentials I recomend. You may be thinking "Pants? Why do I need pants when I just do ballet?" Well, the amount of times my fellow classmates and I have been caught out with a e.g. surprise exercise class is a lot. Running around in just a leotard and tights is not appealing.  Trust me. ^_^ 

Step 3: Packing For Jazz

Contemporary is a bit tricky to pack for as some teachers prefer some shoes others prefer different ones. This is a basic list of what you should pack-
~ foot thongs
~ ballet shoes (old ones)
~ Pointe shoes ( old ones and only of you do Pointe already)

Step 6: Packing For Ballet

~ Ballet flats

~ Pointe shoes (only if you are already on Pointe)
~ therapy band
