    21 Dance Must Haves

    Here is a list of items that I, as a dancer, think are essential to surviving long rehearsals and days at the studio. These items are great for any aspiring athlete, but they are also good for all sorts of other things!

    1. Warmups (like leg warmers, a puffy vest, or a light sweater)
    2. A muscle roller
    3. Tiger balm
    4. A Theraband
    5. Extra tights/leotard
    6. Snacks (bananas and trail mix are my go to)
    7. Makeup wipes
    8. Deodorant
    9. Bandaids
    10. Hair pins and a brush
    11. Hairspray
    12. Dance socks
    13. A notebook and pen to write down corrections
    14. Second skin squares for blisters
    15. Warm up booties
    16. A phone charger
    17. A book for breaks
    18. Hand sanitizer
    19. An extra mask to put on if yours gets too sweaty
    20. Icy hot patches
    21. Epsom salt baths for when you get home
