Although this post is about my “tango dance bag” I generally tend to keep all of this stuff in my bag unless I am going to work (I work as a personal chef and have a separate bag for that). This is just the dance related stuff!
PLEASE NOTE THE REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE AND THINK ABOUT BRINGING YOUR OWN CUP TO MILONGAS INSTEAD OF WASTING A DISPOSABLE CUP EVERY TIME YOU DRINK WINE!!!!
If you go out 3 times a week and use a cup x 52 weeks = 156 CUPS
Say 50 people do the same. Just 50. That’s 7,800 cups a year. That’s probably a low estimate. Think about how many cups that is all over the world just from tango. I’m not saying go vegan paleo gluten free I can only eat cardboard macrobiotic. But it’s just one straw said 7 billion people.
The obvious addition. I can forget everything else on this list as long as I have my shoes.
Flat dance shoes
Just in case my ankle hurts I need to switch into flats.
I generally always change into something less restricting than street clothes. Although some people can dance in pants I just don’t really like it. (Leggings are comfy though.)
I keep a mini perfume in my bag for that point in the night when I’m a little too warm and gross. Perfect time to use up those perfume samples!
I don’t know why I pack makeup to do touch ups. I never do…. I guess I like to have the option to fix my eyeliner on the right side of my face.
Ladies will understand. This tape prevents wardrobe malfunctions. Very handy.
Extra pair of contacts/ eye drops
Just in case…
In case my eyes are too irritated from contacts.
I need my Dentyne Ice in Peppermint. I’m a gum snob. Actually I was traumatized with other mint flavors as the solution to car sickness when I was younger…
Just in case, when they come in handy they reeeally come in handy
Even in the dead of winter there usually comes a point in the night that I need to dig out my fan!
I have two kinds of foot rollers that I use. I liked to keep this green one in my bag to use after I dance, the other one is a ball with spikes that I use at home.
I carry a small bottle of baby powder in case the floor is too sticky.
Mini water bottle
There are typically plastic cups available because of wine, but I don’t want to waste plastic!
I always try to keep some kind of bar in my bag because I will be hungry at the end of the night for sure. Better than a 3am french fry run at McDonalds (my guilty pleasure)…
Tango is the reason I still carry cash.
