This is great! ... Our Annual ballet production is in 1 week and a half! I keep a clear plastic trundle box for costume pieces and a metal makeupcase full of ballet things during the year and I was thinking it's about time to get them out and organize my stuff... Very helpful to be able to compare ...

This is a VERY nice post..but I dont agree with what you said about the clear earrings...

If you just get your ears pierced, you have to keep the same ones in when you get them pierced for atleast six weeks.

So...I don't recommend the clear earrings for if you just got your ears pierced....etc.

I like the whole baby powder idea for changing tights when your sweaty.....when they stick to your skin it's the worst. As for the whole bring an extra pair of tights thing... I learned that the hard way. We were running late for a competition and I accidently grabbed my little sisters tights instead. When I was frantically changing into them, the ENTIRE croch ripped apart.

So basically, I think I'll print this thing off and use it for a checklist :)

great post, I always forget the clear nail polish and I ALWAYS make runs in my tights.

There is one thing that has not been mentioned (i think) and it's body glitters (of course only if you are allowed to wear some because some studios don't allow them)

something else we all forget: homework... (on purpose most of time) when we're at these long competitions where you only dance at 9:00 am and the awards are like at 2:00pm and you have tons of homework to do... I know it sounds really boring and it's fun to watch other numbers but remember that you'll be tired after you are back home and you won't really feel like doing those homework until 2:00 in the morning ;) so bring some music if it helps you concentrate, find a quiet spot and bring your homework with you.

thank you thank you thank you!!!! even though ive been competing for 5 years now, i still forget little things all the time. even when i go back and triple check everything, i always find that there's something missing in my bag, from my costume, for my hairpiece, or my makeup. even my friends have the same problems. i should print out that list so i can have something extra to refer to.

if youre going to an outside competition like a state or county fair - chairs that are comfortable, blankets, sweaters, sunscreen, and bug spray are all necessary! haha! even if its supposed to be a nice day. just leave the blanket and stuff in the trunk of your car if it is nice out, but then if it starts to get bad, then youre prepared.
