It’s almost dance nationals! If you’re a competition studio, this is what your year has been leading up to. Getting to travel to a new location and see other fantastic studios is always a great way to end the year (and be inspired for the next year).

Before you leave for nationals, teachers and studio owners need to plan for a lot. A ton actually. Here is a comprehensive checklist to look over before heading out of town:

Costume Checklist for Dancers

If you have time, create a checklist for your dancer’s costumes. That way when they pack, they can make sure they have each item.

Extras for Your Dancers

Chances are that someone will need a little extra help. Be sure to have things like:

  • Extra briefs, shorts, and/or tights
  • Safety pins (like, a lot)
  • Hair Ties
  • Bobby Pins
  • Hair Clips
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Sewing Kit
  • Bandaids
  • Athletic Tape
  • Ibuprofen
  • Makeup Wipes
  • Hairspray
  • Soft Bristled Brush

Other Important Things to Bring:

  • Bluetooth Speaker
  • Backup iPod (with music on the cloud)
  • Plenty of Studio Gear
  • Coffee/ Red Bull
  • Snacks for long auditorium days
  • Blankets for cold auditoriums
  • A bottle of wine (or two)

Don’t forget some of the more-obvious things too. Your phone charger, a decent camera, and your swim suit are other things you don’t want to forget!
