Road Test: It's in the Bag


Finding the perfect dance bag is a tall order. Not only does it have to hold all the necessities, but it goes everywhere from studio to theater and all places in between. It must do all this and look stylish at the same time. A difficult task? Six dancers from American Repertory Ballet welcomed the challenge of testing more than 15 styles when Pointe came to their studio in Princeton, New Jersey.

1 "This is a good-sized bag. When I am traveling, I would definitely use it. I like the flap covering the zipper. It's extra security" -Anitra Nurnberger on Capezio

2 "This is a very functional bag. There's a pocket on the outside, which would be for your water bottle. That's good because I always lose mine. And I like bright colors." -Bat Abbit on Melo 3 "This is nice because it has a thicker lining on the bottom, so that you can put heavy stuff in it. The mesh inside is good for shoes and even sweaty [clothes]. Anitra Numberger on Danskin 4 The color's cute, and the cloth is durable. And it's gray, which is good because if you pick up dirt, it doesn't really show." -Kymm Clayton on Walker Bags 5 "1 like the mesh, so odors don't stay in. It's a good size, and it can expand. You can put a lot of stuff in here, I carry a lot" -Anitra Nurnberger on Prima Soft 6 "I love the look, and I love the size. It's big enough, but not too big. This is all the room I would need. And it has these inside pockets, which I like." -BatAbbit on Diesel 7 "This is good for shoe stuff: Band-Aids, toe pads, tape, things like that. It's easy to close. I like that. -Kymm Clayton on Curtain Call 8 "This is similar to the dance bag I have now. The main pocket is big enough to fit as much as I need. It's a good bag. A-plus, Jansport." -Christopher Bandy on Jansport 9 "If I was just having class or a short rehearsal, this would be great. I like this material because if it rained, it would probably be all right." -Peggy Petteway on Bloch 10 "It's simple and that works. It's big and open, which is great for dancers. It has all the basic requirements. And everyone loves black." -Christopher Bandy on Leo's Dancewear 11 "The idea for a separate shoe compartment is good. It's really deep. It would hold a lot of clothes and makeup and all your shoes on top." -Rose Sue on Gaynor Minden 12 "It's a contemporary style. I like to pack light because I have a long commute to work, and the compartments are good for your clothes and shoes." -Rose Sue o Freed of London Inset: 13 "It's gorgeous. I would carry this as a purse or out, It's classy looking. It's a really nice purse that someone could decide is a dance bag." -Peggy Petteway on Levenger 14 "The design is nice. I like that it Can stand up, and the adjustable strap is always great. It'd also be great as an overnight bag." -Kymm Clayton on Horizon Designs 15 "It won't be wet if you have gross clothes. I have a lot of paperwork and it would be good for that because I could zip it up and not worry about stuff getting wet. …
