Personally, I would bring at least 6 leotards for a 3-8 week intensive. One for each day of the week that you will be dancing. :)

that was a great list! thanks...i always seem to forget something. Last year it was an alarm clock! oops! well one thing i do suggest is to not pack all of your dance stuff in the suitcase but put a leo, tights, pair of pointe shoes, and flats in you carry one incase for some reason your luggage is lost! its a long shot but i would always rather be safe then sorry.



YOU, my dear, are very clever and organised
This happened to me once, it was tragic :(

Great list! However, there were a lot of unneccesary things such as crepe paper, candles (danger!), a bath mat, or a bath squeegie. But it's still useful for some people I'm sure...but I don't think that many things really need to be packed...aren't we there to dance, after all?
I really appreciate this list because I would have totally forgot about hangers (so important!), a matress pad, and shower shoes.
Some critical things to add are FEMININE PRODUCTS!!!!!, Therabands, and face masks/treatments, such as zit cream.

I'm packing for Cecchetti Int'l Camp from July 12-25th in Holland MI so this is soso helpful. :)

Oh A Few Other Things That I Find Useful: (Sorry If These Things were already on the list but I didn't pay attention to them)

-Mini Fan or Regular Fan (summer's hot, dancing makes you hotter)
-Garbage Can ( Some SI's don't provide them and you don't wanna always have to go to the bathroom each time you need them)
-Plastic Or A Bunch Of Paper Cups For Rinsing After You Brush Your teeth
-Bug Spray
-Ice Pack (For Injuries)

Also If You Have Had An Injury This Past Year It Might Be Helpful To Bring Whatever You Need So If You Feel It Acting Up Again, Your Covered (like a tenser bandage). But if it's really hurting tell the teacher or whoever is there to help you!!!!

Sorry, One Last Thing Is HAND SANITIZER! You'll never know how many people have danced on that barre..
I don't want to be a freak or scare you but Swine Flu is getting more popular and I know that every dancer wants to stay safe :)

You are amazing, thanks so much! I've never been to an SI (hopefully next year though!), but I've used this list and edited it a bit to pack for fine arts camp, conventions and competitions, and plain old vacations :)

Great!! I am using this for my packing. The only thing that I would add that wasnt mentioned would be a character skirt (some intensives have character classes) and an extension cord.

I have to agree with firebird_ that this list is far too excessive. Even if you crossed out a lot of these things, I think it would still be too excessive. If you took all or even most of these things with you, I have a feeling that you'd need at least three, perhaps as many as four, suitcases plus a large trunk to hold all of those things. Keep in mind that at the SI, you're going to be sharing a small dorm room with several other dancers. The dorm rooms are not apartment-size. There won't be room in the dorms for any of those things on your entertainment list, nor for a whole store of office supplies.

I'm not American so this might have been covered under another name but...

A 'camping clothesline' (made from thin strands of elastic wound round itself- you thread your things between the elastic and the tension holds them there) is really helpful to dry little things like leos and tights in your room because you don't need pegs.
