Cheap dance bags can help you keep all of your dancing gear organized, or provide a unique and fun gift to your teammates and/or students over the holidays.

Handy, Cheap Dance Bags

It's easy to go into a dance boutique or peruse online and drop a large amount of cash on a dance bag that may boast itself to be elite or high performance. However, in the end, the reality is all bags are just bags, and you might find yourself wasting money you could have spent on dance items where quality really does matter. On the flip side, you need some sort of bag to carry your dance shoes, warm up clothes and other items in, which means you need to find an economical solution. This is where cheap dance bags come into play - economical, fun and creative.

Purchasing

If you're going to be in an overpriced dance shop for other reasons, you may as well check out their bag selection. Sometimes there are great sales, especially right at the end of the season, where you can find the tote bag of your dreams that will work perfectly for your busy rehearsal schedule. However, if you do not find a winner within your price range, do not lose heart. There are many more options available.

Mainstream Stores

If you have a favorite style or pop culture character, visit a store that may carry such a selection. If you love floral prints, for example, you may want to try the luggage section of your department store for a quilted tote featuring a soft flowery design. If you love Mickey Mouse, then why not visit the Disney store or look online? Many Disney characters are licensed for bags that would serve well as a dance bag.

While every region of the U.S. varies, here is a generalized list of stores that may carry a bag that can work well for dance:

  • Target
  • Wal-Mart
  • Sears
  • Journeys
  • Kmart
  • Disney Store
  • Capezio
  • Kohl's
  • Macy's

These are just a few of the stores where totes will be readily available for purchase.

Getting Crafty

If you cannot find a cheap bag you are in love with, you can still save money and get the look you want for minimal cost. Visit your local craft store and ask to see their selection of blank canvas bags. They will usually come in a few colors - black, white and natural. If your store has a particularly large selection, you may find totes in primary or neon colors as well.

Spend some time looking through the store and discovering the various things you can use to design your own bag. Puff paint, iron on transfers, buttons, patches and pins are popular choices. Take enough time to discover items that make you uniquely you, and then incorporate them into your bag. When your craft project is complete, you will have a special bag you love and no one can imitate.

You can also purchase enough dance bags for your entire dance team or teaching studio, and create a personalized bag for each dancer you work with. This unique and personal gift will be welcomed during the holidays or during special dance school occasions. Your students or teammates will be honored you took the special time to think of them individually, customizing each bag to their own likes and dislikes. You'll score points with your dance contemporaries, and they will leave with a bag they will always cherish. Little will they know how economical of a gift it really was.

Dance bags don't have to be anything special. From a solid canvas sack to a top of the line dance shoe bag found on clearance, there is always a way to get exactly what you're looking for with a little patience and perseverance.
