Ballroom Competition Packing List

What to remember to bring to ballroom competitions.

Absolute essentials: Costume(s), dance shoes, wallet.

Basically everything else you can borrow or manage to do without, but these you really cannot forget. (I do suppose you can borrow a costume/shoes, but obviously pretty tricky.)

Everything else:

  • Clothing
  • Men: shirts, pants, vest, BLACK socks, tie(s), underwear
  • Women: dress, top, skirt, hosiery, undergarments, dance pants
  • Pajamas
  • Warm-up clothes, team jacket if applicable
  • Travel clothes (t-shirt, jeans, sweats, shoes & socks, outerwear)
  • Extra backup costume, backup shoes
  • Hair products: gel, spray, pins, decorations, comb, hairbrush, hair ties, hair net
  • Jewelry: earrings, bracelet, necklace, hair jewelry
  • Tanner
  • Towel if not staying in a hotel
  • Toiletries: toothbrush, toothpaste, moisturizer, face wash, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, antiperspirant/deodorant, razor, shaving cream

  • Makeup: foundation, powder, concealer, sponge, brushes, primer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, fake lashes, lash glue, blush, lipstick, lipliner, bronzer, highlighter, makeup remover, nail polish, glitter
