Dance bags are a necessary item for any experienced dancer. Dancers frequently need to carry many different types of dance shoes, clothing options, accessories, snacks, and water bottles with them while taking classes, auditioning, or performing. A dance bag is different than a standard bag because it has compartments that are specially deigned to hold dance shoes and accessories.

Uses for Dance Bags

Dance bags are designed to work with a dancer's lifestyle. Some bags are designed for specific styles of dance. For instance, Capezio ABT bags are designed for ballerinas to store ballet shoes, pointe shoes, and pointe shoe accessories. On the other hand, Capezio Gold Premier bags are much larger and can store a variety of dance shoe styles in different compartments. The Gold Premier bag also features an inner pocket to store damp garments and additional pockets to hold various dance accessories.

Some dance bags are made specifically for certain age groups. Bags are available for children as well as for adults. Adult bags are typically larger and are available in black or neutral colors. Children's bags are available in many different colors and some will have pictures or patterns printed on the outside surface. Children's bags are also available in easy-to-carry styles such as backpacks and rolling duffel bags.

Some of the most popular brands of bags for dance include Capezio, Bloch, Body Wrappers, and Grishko. Many different styles of bags are available from these companies, including totes, duffel bags, backpacks, garment bags, and mesh drawstring bags. Some styles, such as the Grishko Netted Duffel Bag, have netted pockets which allow shoes and clothing to be separated and exposed to the air to minimize odor.
