Team Talk Odette! #176 - A Ballerina's Ballet Bag
September 01, 2014

What does a ballerina keep in her ballet bag?

Well, there are definitely some main essentials which always have to stay in my ballet bag.

If you were going to have a sneak peak inside, you'd find - sewing kit, ouch pouches, therabands (for warming up and strengthening), water bottle, pen, ballet skirt, headphones, green tea bags, body spray, ballet flats and pointe shoes!

.... And, yes, my bag is always very heavy! But for 6 hours of dancing a day, you always need to be prepared.

You can make sure you have your ballet essentials with my checklist here -

You'll always find professional ballet dancers sewing, stretching, exercising or sleeping on any break they can get.

Have a great week!

Best wishes,
