Competition season is coming up quick.  Make sure you’re prepared with these tips from the seasoned staff of MDC.

Tip One: Make a checklist.

Prior to competition write down everything you need for each of your dance routines . This way as you pack you can check off everything you need without the terrible feeling that you forgot something .

Some things to include on your checklist are ….

Bobby pins , hairspray , elastics, dance shoes , ALL your costumes , a water bottle and maybe even some backstage snacks. And of course anything else your dance teacher told you to bring .

Tip Two: Pack your bag the night before

You don’t want to be running around like a crazy person the day of competition. Especially if it’s an early morning.  Have your checklist ready and pack your bag the night before to avoid the last minute rush out the door. This way you can start your competition day stress free!


Tip Three: HAVE FUN

This may just be the most important tip of all . Remember with all the hustle and bustle that competition season brings the most important thing to take away from it is not a medal or a big trophy but the memories of a good time.
