Dance recital/gymnastics meet survival kit

This past weekend, our little gymnast had a recital at her dance and gymnastics academy.

She did a magnificent job and we couldn’t be more proud.

Today, I thought I’d share our backstage survival kit we created for her recital.

In Emorie’s bag, we included the following:


Your dancer/gymnast’s recital attire

Hair accessories or head pieces

A jacket or warm ups in case it’s cold


Detangling spray


A hairbrush or comb

Hair ties

Bobby pins

Make up and skin care:

Optional: lotion

Lipstick and eye makeup. Stage lights can drown out your child’s facial features. We just used mascara, lipstick and neutral eye shadow.

Miscellaneous: (and not pictured)


A water bottle

A small first aid kit

Safety pins

And lastly, don’t forget it’s customary to give flowers to your tiny performer.

I hope you have a wonderful Thursday.
