After many years of working and living in the dance world, we’ve picked up a few tricks here and there. In this post we’ll let you know 5 of our all-time favourite tips and tricks for everyday dancer problems.
1: Keeping Hair Pins in Place
Spraying bobby pins with hairspray before putting them into your hair makes them far more likely to stay in place.
2: Breaking in New Shoes
Using a blowdryer to heat the insides of new shoes before wearing them helps break them in much faster.
3: Treating a Blister
Oral anesthetic gel can numb small blisters, cuts, and bruises in a pinch.
4: Sewing a Tear
Dental floss can double as industrial-strength thread on any rips or tears that happen unexpectedly.
5: Massaging Sore Feet
Use a tennis ball to massage sore feet and muscles when your tools aren’t on hand.
