Inside a Dance Studio is a blog hosted by Pegasus Studios with the aim of celebrating, discussing and learning about how dance can help support and foster healthy and happy children, adolescents and adults. This blog is inspired by our experiences as teachers and owners of Pegasus Studios, a dance studio primarily dedicated to art and health in children, from the ages of 2-20, give or take a few years!

Parent Toolbox: Everything you will need on exam day

Although most of this checklist is specifically for the exam candidates and not the parents, we’ve made sure to include a few things you might want to pack along with the list of what your child needs to have on the big day.
In the dance bag:
·         Uniform – everything washed, ironed, polished. New tights (or somewhat new) are good as they will be clean with no chance of runs.
o   Leotard
o   Tights or socks
o   Waistband
o   Ballet slippers
o   Character shoes (Grade 1+)
o   Character skirt (Grade 1+)
·         Hair Kit
o   Elastics
o   Pins
o   Hair net
o   Brush
o   Hair spray
·         Water bottle
·         A snack for after the exam – they take a lot of energy so a granola bar or piece of fruit is really nice for after
For Parents:
·         Camera
·         Coffee and book – once you arrive at the studio and the preparations begin it can be a lot of sitting and waiting
