Summer dance intensives are an exciting part of a dancer’s growth and development. You meet lots of other students that share your love of dance, you work with master teachers and you learn to become a bit more independent. It’s a great experience!
Going into the program with the right tools and supplies can alleviate some of the nerves that have a natural tendency to intermingle with your excitement.
In addition to any required program items, here is our suggested packing list (yes, you may need a large suitcase!):
Leotards: At least one per day. Check with your program to see if certain colors or styles are required. Bring your favorites that make you feel confident!
Tights: Lots! You will enjoy the feeling of a fresh pair mid-way through the day. Do not wear any tights with holes, stains, etc.
Wrap Skirt (check your program to see if there are required colors) and/or rehearsal skirt
Pointe Shoes: Plan on several pairs. They will wear out quicker in the summer humidity. Be sure to rotate them to let them rest and re-harden between wearings.
