Dance Teachers: Three Quick, Last Minute Convention Supplies

last minute convention supplies feat

We go to great lengths to be as prepared and organized as possible at every single event, but there are a few items we ALWAYS forget for conventions. As you’re packing up, make sure you include these last minute convention supplies!

Scissors

Every time we arrive at a convention and are distributing wristbands, we always forget to have scissors on hand to cut the extra band. I have scissors in the spare sewing kit, but they will not work on most wristband materials.

Some conventions or competitions give out scissors as part of registration. Ask and see if the one you’re attending does! If not, make sure to grab that pair of scissors on the way out the door.

Sharpie

There is another item that is great to have on hand for travel and community/competitive performances: a SHARPIE!

This comes in handy for labeling music, forms, costumes, etc. Add it to your must-bring list!

(P.S. Make that TWO Sharpies. Someone will absolutely ask you to borrow one, and you will absolutely never get it back.)

Mobile Battery/Charger

On long weekends of competition, performance, and convention classes, it is really easy to drain the power on your device(s).

Recently, we purchased a portable battery. This device is amazing for charging on the go!

It eliminates the necessity of dragging cords, finding outlets, etc.

There are many different brands, styles, and price points available- but definitely look into it! It will make your life much more convenient!
