School is out, recital is over, SUMMER IS HERE and it's time for your dance intensive! You may be traveling across the country for a Summer Intensive program, so that means a lot of prepping and packing. This can be stressful, but Covet Dance is here to keep you prepared!
Keep reading for our "Top 5 Packing Essentials" and don't forget to download and print "The Complete Summer Intensive Checklist"!
The perfect garments to wear over your leotard and tights before starting a day of training. An embroidered sweatshirt paired with joggers is a great way to stay on-trend while keeping your muscles warm!
2. Lunch Bag
Dancers are BUSY on rehearsal days, but it should always be the #1 priority to keep your body fueled with healthy snacks. This bag is perfect for Summer Intensive, as it includes an insulated cooler to keep your food and drinks fresh.
3. First Aid and Self Care
Instead of individually packing bandages, ice packs and muscle recovery products... try one of our kits! Keep a "Dancer Problems Kit" in your dance bag, and be ready to rehab and relax at the end of the night with our "Dance Apothecary Set".
4. Skin Care
Although Summer Intensive is jam packed with classes and rehearsals, there are sometimes opportunities for auditions or performances. Applying stage makeup is always exciting on these special occasions, but don't forget to take care of your skin... especially when you're breaking a sweat! Use "Dance Off" to remove makeup and treat acne, then follow up with "Triple Threat" to cleanse your face.
There's nothing worse than smelly dance clothes... but there's ESPECIALLY nothing worse than a smelly costume you can't throw in the machine! Use this advanced odor neutralizer to spray on your tutu and tights when you're in a hurry.
