After several performances, you start to get the hang of what you can skip and what you need to bring for every performance. But for all of my first year students, here is a quick list of what are some essentials at every performance.

Remember to bring each item for each region that you are dancing. Make sure to write your name on all of your own belongings so they don't get lost.
