Packing for a Ballroom dance competition trip can be stressful, especially if it's your first time. When I first started competing, I was guilty of constantly over-packing, since I always found myself needing things in the heat of the action that I didn't anticipate. Years later, packing for a dance trip still presents a challenge, since there's always a lot of clothing and shoes to bring even if you're only taking things you're sure you'll use. Hopefully this list will help you figure out what you need to bring to your next competition. Some things might not apply.
