Functional and stylish, the spacious, zip-top dance bag offers plenty of room in the main compartment for all of your dance gear and a zip-up bottom for your shoes. A small coin purse also accompanies this dance bag.
If you're like me and you don't need a lot of extra space, I would get this bag. It's cute, durable (I've had mine for about two years or so and there's no sign of wear and tear), and spacious enough for the necessities. I love it.
Where has this bag been all my life?! It's big and can hold all of my shoes, hair supplies, stretching bands, and so much more! I got the black and I highly recommended it for people who are going for a more professional look. I absolutely adore this bag.
i love the color of this dance bag and that it has a place for all your shoes. i bought this because my old dance bag that i bought from discount dance 4 years ago finally ripped. it was pink and zebra print duffel bag. i felt like it was time to grow up since i am now 16 years old. so this was perfect. my friend even said it was cute even though it was pink and she hates pink. shes also been looking for a new bag since hers ripped also. so i recommended her this one, as long as she does not get it in pink than were totally fine. but, if she gets it we could be best friend goals.
My daughter has had this bag for several years. It is roomy and very sturdy. Great pockets for hiding your cell phone, a coin purse for a little cash after class. She has loved it. And now as it's wearing out we are buying another. Love the new color choices, so hard to choose!
I would not recommend the black bag, only because it is so hard to see items inside the bag. Forget finding those black jazz shoes!
I order this tote style dance bag for my 7 1/2 year old daughter, in the black/teal color, to use for her dance, acrobatics, piano and voice classes (all at the same school so I wanted one bag that could hold it all). I read all of the great reviews before ordering but still wasn't expecting it to be all that it is for such a reasonable price! I was impressed. This bag is great. The material is durable and high quality, the separate bottom zipper compartment for shoes is also large enough to fit several pairs of shoes, there is a mesh pocket (non-zip) on the outside which my daughter uses to hold her water bottle, and there are also two outside patch pockets (non-zip), one on either side of the mess pocket on the front of the bag which are useful for things you need to grab quickly. The added touch of the removable key chain-like little zip coin purse is nice too. There is one average size side zip pocket on the inside and an elasticized, open bottom sleeve attached to the side of the inside which I think is specifically for holding a water bottle in place, The rest of the inside is a large open space (no compartments) and it truly does fit a lot! Although this isn't a cross body bag like some duffle dance bags, both shoulder straps are generously adjustable. I would not recommend this for a tiny child because it is a big bag. My daughter is in second grade and can now manage it but would have probably had a difficult time last year. This will definitely last and is perfect for tweens, teens and adults. It's not just a "dance" bag. This is truly a multi use tote bag and you will be very pleasantly surprised and impressed with what you get for the value! My daughter loves it and I'm thinking of ordering one for myself. So many uses and great quality!
Wow, this bag is huge for the $14 I spent on it! Well worth the price. The color is deep and gorgeous, and the bag fits all 6 pairs of dance shoes, a notebook for acting class, hairspray, and legwarmers, with room to spare. The material is thick and I can see this bag lasting for a long while. If you need a reliable and cute dance bag, this is for you.
LOVE this bag. So much room in the main compartment and decent pockets. I got black/black and the color is great for a teacher or otherwise serious dancer. Straps are adjustable which is a really handy detail, and the inside water bottle holder is actually a great size. I totally recommend this bag for anyone carrying a significant amount of gear.
I have had many dance bags in my life and this by far is the best! I ordered one for the new dance season and it was so comfortable and spacious that my Mom ordered one for when we go on trips. This bag looks like a $50 bag in person and it is soooooo large. I cant fit all three pairs of my dance shoes, my jacket, and a large spiral notebook in the main compartment there is also a large pocket on the inside which i can fit stuff such as hair accessories and a hand held compact mirror. The outside has a netted pocket which is perfect for holding water and it has such spacious pockets on each side! THIS BAG IS SO AMAZING AND SPACIOUS! Last but not least there is a compartment on the very bottom that I put my theraband , Stretching unit , and turn board. I love this bag. It is so durable so it will last me mannnnny years & the straps can be adjusted to fit to my taste and make me feel comfortable when I am carrying it.
Woah! This bag is amazing! I love it so much! It's perfect for comps or recitals!! I would totally recommend it! It's big and it has a lot or pockets! I have the pink one and the color is beautiful! This bag wasn't really expensive and it was awesome quality!
I guess I skimmed over this bag when I was looking for a new dance bag. When I came back to look at it I did not think it would be the best bag, but I needed a new dance bag, and the price was right, so I ordered it. When I got it I was extremely surprised by the durability of the fabric. I love how it is not too bulky and big, but not so small that you can hardly carry anything. It's perfect for everyday dance class plus tons of extra room, and I catch myself wanting to dump all my dance stuff out of it and use it for a normal, everyday bag! I'm thinking about getting another one just for a daily school bag.
This bag is so great! For the price it can't be beat, not to mention all the colors you can choose from when ordering. I bought my daughter the Teal bag. She loves it. It holds all her shoes, clothing, lunch, snacks, money, books, etc for her dance classes. She takes at least 8 different type of dance classes and this bag holds it all. With the zipper closure, shoes and items won't fall out and get lost. I love it and would recommend it to everyone.
I ordered this bag for my daughter after I saw her dance BFF with one. These bags are huge! I love that the shoes, dance clothes, and water bottle/snacks can all be stored in separate zippered areas. We ordered the hot pink and it is just as bright as it is in the picture. My only concern is the zippers. They seem to be a little "sticky" and are hard to unzip at times. I am a little scared that my daughter may end up breaking them in between classes (break time at the studio), during quick shoe changes, or she will just leaving the zippers open and lose things in her bag. So far though, we are loving this bag!
This bag is awesome. It is the perfect size for an intermediate to advanced dancer. I have two pairs of jazz/contemporary shoes (tan & black), tap shoes, two pairs of foot undeez, ballet shoes, turning shoes, point shoes, a muscle roller, theraband, wallet, booty shorts, crop top, leg warmers, elastic, hair accessories, socks, a snack, and water in my bag, with room to spare. The only problem I have with this bag is the water bottle holder. It is not very big and is not capable of holding my water, but I can work around that. This is the perfect bag!
I love this bag! I got it a year ago, and it still looks brand new! It's pretty big. In just the main pocket, I can put 3 leotards, a sweater, 2 pairs of tights, my jazz, ballet and pointe shoes, and a water bottle. In the inside zipper pocket, I fit can bobby pins, a bun net, a mini can of hair spray, 2 elastics and a chapstick. In the bottom pocket, I can fit a tennis ball, a thera-band, an ace bandage, a sewing kit, elastic, toe tape, toe pads, and ribbons. In the coin purse, I put band-aids, some change, and a super mini earring holder. I the outside pockets, I can put snacks, false eyelashes (for performances) lamb's wool, foot undeez, and my phone. Its always really full, but I love it! it works so well!
I've had this bag for two years now and it still looks brand new. There's plenty of room for all of my things, and still some left over. I fit in the main pocket two pairs of pointe shoes, ballet flats, jazz shoes, a tennis ball, Thera-Band, tights, a leotard, hair ties, bobby pins, deodorant, contact solution, and perfume. In the front side pockets I put medical wrap, scissors, moleskin, and little snacks, The front mesh pocket I use for my keys and phone. Even at performance time I still fit everything I need. Supper durable, and worth your money.
I ordered this bag because my old bag was getting too small, and the strap broke. I loved the colors, the price and the size. When it came, it lived up to my expectations for everything but two features. I really love the colors, and it is SUPER durable. Also, I've found uses for all the little pockets! Here's what I use them for:
Bottom zip-open pouch: Because I use my dance bag also as a storage unit for all my dance clothes, I have lots. I keep my leotards in this pouch because I only need them once at the beginning of class and once at the end, and I discovered that you kinda have to tip your whole dance bag on its side to get at this part.
Outside cloth pocket #1: I keep my power bars in this pouch so they don't smell sweaty. Also, though the top doesn't close, I have found that when the middle is full, they don't fall out.
Outside mesh pocket: I keep any papers in her, folded up. For example, I had a photo I was giving one of my friends that I tucked in there. Though it gets a little squashed, it isn't too bad. It is a lot better than if I put it in the middle pocket.
Outside cloth pocket #2: I keep small, miscellaneous items in here.
Clip on coin pouch: I keep a clear plastic tin of bobby pins and my hair net in this part. It's convenient, because I can un-clip it when I wanna use it, then clip it back on so it doesn't get lost.
Interior top zip pouch: I keep my pack of pain killers, my phone, any money I have and any gift cards or other very important small objects
Main part: I have big zippy pouches in which I keep my tights, warm-ups and shoes respectively. I also have my mesh drawstring pointe shoes bag, and my street clothes. Though the bag can become a black hole, there are pockets for small things, and the mesh bags help me stay organized.
The two things I have a problem with are the water bottle holder and the strap. The water bottle holder is almost impossible to use if you push the bottle in from the top, yet it is awkward to get at it from the bottom. Also, it doesn't fit fat water bottles, like the nalgenes I use. The strap's length doesn't bother me, but the edges of the material cut into my shoulder. I'm thinking about sewing a fleece sleeve to cover that part, but I'm still disappointed.
Overall, the pros way out weigh the cons, and I recommend this bag to anyone and everyone!
My daughter needed a new dance bag, because...well....her old one smelled like feet. I ordered this one for her, based pretty much only on the price, not knowing what to expect. I was DELIGHTED with this bag, and so was she!!!
It is actually larger than I had expected, and she can pack it full of all her dance needs. It has a nylon "cuff" inside to hold her water bottle upright, which is perfect. The zippers are durable, and the straps are adjustable. The color is gorgeous!! The true genius, is the zippered bottom, which will hold her ballet slippers and pointe shoes with ease, keeping them away from the interior of the bag....no more smell:):)!!! I was happy enough with this bag for her dance needs, that I ordered one for myself, just as a tote bag for work!!!!
Get this bag, you won't regret it for a second. The straps are both adjustable, it's got lots of outside pockets for your water bottle, wallet, glasses, and I like to use the mesh one for my phone. Plus it has a D ring, so you can just clip your keys to it and not have to dig for them. The best part is the bottom zips so you can put your shoes on bottom and not get your clothes dirty. Plus there's tons of room for you to put your towels and an extra change of clothes if you need it.
Great bag it's bigger than I thought which makes me love it even more! I ordered the pink and it's super cute. Since there's still some room I'll probably have to buy more dance stuff! Yay! Overall awesome bag for the price, and the color is true to the site. I love it!
I have the bag in green and it's really nice. The color is true to the picture, perhaps a shade darker. I love it because it's huge. I always had problems with my previous bags that they were too small. This bag fits everything and I don't have to change what's in it, I just always carry it all! I don't have any classes after one another, so usually it's pretty empty. I normally carry a t-shirt, two pairs of shorts, two pairs of thights, a shrug, a water bottle, a deodorant, hair accessories and three pairs of shoes. The shoe compartment is great because it keeps the smell away and there's space for 6-7 pairs of shoes! I also like the coin purse because I keep all my hair pins there.
Negatives: the front pockets don't close up, so somethings may fall out
there is only one pocket on the inside
THE STRAPS: it's nice that they are adjustable but even when they are at their longest, I can barely put it over my head on the other shoulder. I have to walk half an hour to dance and it's really uncomportably to carry the bag in my hand or have it costantly slip off my shoulder.
Overall, amazing bag for such little money
My daughter had outgrown her little dance bag as she is taking more classes now. this one is perfect t put her school clothes in when she changes has place to keep her dance shoes safe and a place for her water bottle. She loves it and best part was it didn't break the bank.
Pros: great price, holds lots of stuff, has lots of pockets.
Cons: the straps are only just barely long enough to be a crossbody. I sometimes have to walk to class, and it's kinda uncomfortable lugging this around for a half hour, lol. I like how it has some pockets, but I think they could be better. I wish the front pockets had zippers or something because they're almost useless (I've almost lost toe pads and things because of them falling out without me noticing when I'm trying to access the bottom compartment). Also, the water bottle pocket is too small to fit anything but a disposable plastic water bottle.
Other than that, it is a nice bag. :)
I love this bag! I have plenty of bags too, big ones and this one is the best. Used for training and teaching class. Change of clothes, water, lunch bag, therabands, yoga blocks (yes plural), arnica gel, wrist wraps, tape and sticky spray. I got the black and it looks very professional. Only thing that is annoying is the adjustable straps, they get all tangled up when you grab them without looking closely...still best bag ever! Plenty of pockets on the outside too
I love this bag. It holds all of my shoes in the bottom compartment witch surprised my! It holds my ballet flats, pointe shoes, and tap shoes! I got it in pink the color is great, have a few other compartments inside. It also turned out to be a bit larger than I expected which I like. So overall a wonderful bag.
I recieved my bag in purple in the mail today and I was surprised at how big it was. I love it though, it has more compartments than the picture shows, and is made of a great material. The only complaint I have is that the straps are quite bulky, though they've been in a box for 7 days, so I can smooth them down. Holds way more stuff than I have- guess I'!l have to purchase some dancewear!!!
I bought this bag for myself, added our logo patch to it and now 6 of my dancers have the same bag I LOVE it! Somehow it's like magic because as much stuff as I put in it - it all fits. The bag is big and bright and sensible I highly recommend it.
I use this bag for only a few months as a dance bag. The lack of any internal compartments and only one outside pocket made it too much of an annoyance to keep track of things. I like to have my car keys, cell phone, some hair pins, and a Powerbar very handy instead of having to dig around. So after I couldn't find my keys for several minutes (they'd fallen into a spare pair of shoes), I retired this bag from dance and used it for travel. It's excellent as an airport carryon bag. The bottom compartment that you can't really see (there's a zipper around the very bottom) is the perfect spot to stow magazines until you're through security.
I can't live without this bag for dance! This bag is big enough to hold multiple pairs of tights , leotards, skirts, and shorts. It also holds my water bottle (though the special water bottle holder isn't the best), stitch kit, ballet shoes, toe pads, pointe shoes, tap shoes, jazz shoes and a billion other things. It's not bulky either even with all the stuff I put in it! The turquoise is pretty and all the pockets are useful. One thing I don't like is the shoe storage on the bottom because the zipper is hard to get to work and kind of inconvenient because of all the stuff I put in the normal bag part so I just don't use the shoe pocket. Otherwise......LOVE IT !!!!!!
I loved this bag when I saw it online! I'm the type of dancer who likes LOTS of room for skirts, shorts, warmups, 5 pairs of shoes, 3 pairs of leg warmers, an extra leotard, extra tights, water bottle, toe tape, pain relievers, stretch bands, massaging balls, sewing kits etc. for my long dance days. I've had countless bags and have been told that I look like I'm carrying a body in them because of how big and full they are. ^_^ I think all of my junk comes in hand quite a lot considering people are always asking me for things (: I love the design of this bag, I got it in the Teal color, when I got it I was so happy, I still love the color and the design. But I had to downsize on all of my stuff a lot! It's a very narrow bag, and I was hoping it would have lots of pockets inside, but it doesn't. It has 3 pockets in the front on the outside that are about 5X7" inches, the bottom of the bag opens up and it just a plain flat pouch that's about a foot long, the inside has one zip up pouch that is about 3X3" inches, and there is a little water bottle holder also in the inside but it doesn't have a bottom so I didn't find much use for it considering that every time I put my water bottle or hairspray in it it would fall out. ): The straps lengthen to VERY long to VERY short, right in between is perfect to me! I do consider myself a bag expertise (>^_^)> and I would rate this bag overall 4 stars, its durability is wonderful, no scratches or snags or stains and I have had it for about 3 months. I do love this bag and I hope to keep it for at least another year or two but I would like to have the tiniest bit of more room/pockets because I have ended up carrying my own little purse for other extra things. If you just go to a class with nothing but shoes and a skirt and water this is perfect. But if you're anything like me you might have to consider downsizing slightly. But I do highly recommend this bag to the average dancer! ^_^ Definitely something to think about.
I've been dancing my whole like and used a lot of bags, but this is the best yet! We use these for the dance team at my school and all the girls love them! Everything fits plus more. Everything we've had was black and gold this year we got to pick our favorite colors and its cute!
I bought this bag about a year ago because I needed a bigger bag for all my stuff. I take 6 different dance classes so it adds up to a lot of shoes and clothes. This fits all of it! The bottom compartment holds flat stuff like ballet shoes but isn't really tall enough for large things like tap shoes. Overall this bag is perfect and I love it!!
The picture does absolutely nothing for this bag! It's so much better in person! I don't know why, it looks the same in person but the picture isn't convincing. It's just so much better.. Anyway I got it in pink and it's the perfect size for me! I'm 5'2" and really tiny but I can still carry this bag around without it being too big. My only problem is that it doesn't have shoulder pads but it's fine.. Well in storage matters, it fits everything I need which is 4 pairs of shoes (not on pointe yet), 2 pairs of tights, an extra leo, all the things I need for hair and buns, theraband, money (the coin purse comes in great handy!), jazz pants, street clothes for if I'm going out right after, a bunch of extra ballet shorts and soffee shorts, little makeup bag, stitch kit, legwarmers, a skirt, and much more!!!!! Well basically if you're someone like me who has about 10 hours of dance a week, this bag is great for you!
I bought this dance bag in black and i'll just say now it was an amazing deal! It is a bit bigger than i thought it would be but that's okay, i'll get used to it! I used the schoe compartment for my pointe shoes and put the rest of my shoes in the main part of the bag. It works out really well. But another problem is that i wish they put padding on the straps, it hurts my shoulders sometimes, i don't know, maybe i'll make my own strap pads haha!
This bag is durable and super convenient. It has lots of pockets for accessories, snacks and water. The shoe compartment on bottom is roomy enough for 3 + pairs of children's shoes with plenty of room to spare.
This holds a lot of stuff without being bulky. During and intensive I put ballet shoes, pointe shoes, toe pads, foot paw-things, jazz shoes, 3 water bottles, a lunch box, legwarmers, and a camera in there. Before I got that bag I carried the lunch box and water bottles and was constantly losing it. I just left the legwarmers and camera at home. I got the black one and decorated it in puffy paint to make it prettier.
This is a great bag! We use this bag as our studio dance bag. Love the compartments and it is just a perfect size for the younger dancers. It is very durable and has a great look about it. The bottom compartment is just one of the great things about it. We use it in both pink and black, the students' choice! Both equally popular. I travel a lot and I use it basically every day.
I got this bag to use as a book bag for grad school, since I had one similar that I got in junior high when I was dancing. That bag lasted me through my first year of grad school and a couple of trips to Europe, until the lining began to wear out. This model is an improvement in many ways, especially with the adjustable straps, zip bottom (very good for holding books), and the water bottle holding pocket inside (it works really well for an umbrella). It can hold several books, notebooks, and my laptop. My only complaint was that the mesh front pocket ended up ripping in the bottom very early on, but it can still hold my travel coffee mug. However, it is still an awesome bag and people are amazed when they find out the price!
I love this bag. I can store all of my dance gear in it without any problems. I bought it because of the great reviews and price. Boy were the other buyers right, this bag is absolutely fabulous. The picture does this bag very little justice. It's much larger and the pink is much prettier. This is a great buy.
This bag is GREAT. It's real durable material. It has more compartments than the website leads on, so it's perfect for classes or on the go. It has SO much room inside, perfect for multiple dance classes, plus in pink, it's uber cute.
Sorry girls, in my last review, I said shoulder pads. It must have been wishful thinking because it needs some. The plastic adjusters are right where your shoulder is, kinda uncomfy, but that is sooo minor compared to how awesome this bag really is. EVEREST had poor teachers in mind when they made this discounted bag!!!
I love the style of this bag, however, I need one that is cross-body...does this bag have a cross body strap?
This bag does not come with a longer strap that can attach. - DDS Customer Service (08/12/2013)
It becomes just barely long enough to be a cross-body. - Anna2 (01/05/2014)
It has two straps. But you could drop them low and wear it cross body style if you wanted to. I wear it short and over my shoulder, but I did wear mine cross body a few times. - Rarasaurous (05/27/2014)
While the straps on this bag are adjustable, I would not consider them to be long enough for cross body. - Dancemomof1 (07/05/2014)
It's over the shoulder, and the straps are adjustable, but I doubt you could make them long enough to wear as a cross body bag ? also, it has double straps which would make it hard. - Colygirl (04/24/2015)
I need a bag that isn't too big but will hold all my stuff.
Will this bag hold- two extra pairs of tights, 2 extra leotards, nude leotard, ballet shoes, street shoes, street clothes, a pair of booty shorts, a crop top, sports bra, water bottle, and a small make-up bag. And does it have a zipper pocket to put foot undeez in so they wont get lost in the main part of the bag.
Unfortunately since we do not have the exact items in front of us we cannot make a guarantee that the bag could contain everything. However, it is a large bag at 16 ?"W x 14"H x 7"D. And it does have a bottom compartment where you could have your foot undeez separately. - DDS Customer Service (06/25/2013)
I think it will fit all of that. This bag is not as roomy as the reviews would make you think. It's plenty for a dancer of only one or two disciplines, but for me, I have 4 pairs of ballet flats, two pairs pointe shoes, two pairs jazz shoes, two pairs lyrical shoes, tap shoes and split sole sneakers that I carry with me--that among my sewing kit and therabands and other things makes it hard to shut after I've been rummaging in it through classes.
Yes, it has a zipper pocket on the inside and a zippered coin purse on the outside. - Anna2 (01/05/2014)
Right now I have three pairs of ballet shoes, two pairs of toe pads (inside the small zipper pouch) three Leo's, three booty shorts, two wrap skirts, three Paris of tights, my pointe shoe kit, small makeup bag, bottle of body spray, big B&BW body cream, a large warm up sweater, a face towel, three pairs of leg warmers inside of mine, plus the pockets on the outside hold my huge wallet, phone, and I use two water bottles in each side pocket so I don't have to leave the classroom to get more. The big pocket on the bottom is awesome for shoes, so you don't get you stuff dirty. I call my bag the bottomless pit, because even with all that stuff I could fit more into it! - Rarasaurous (05/27/2014)
I think this bag should hold all of your gear. It is definitely roomier than expected, from the picture. There IS a zippered pocket inside for foot undeez!!! - Dancemomof1 (07/05/2014)
I use this bag a lot and it smells really bad because of my shoes. I have those odor eliminator pouches from DDS but it still smells pretty bad.
You may call customer service at 1-800-470-1664 for further assistance and return the item for a refund - DDS Customer Service (01/03/2013)
I had a bag that unfortunately got sprayed by a cat, but I got the smell out! First pull everything out for about a week and put it outside to "air out." After that make sure your order eliminator pouches are still good and working. Clean out your shoes as best you can and - put unused dryer sheets in them - every time you put them back in your bag. Also, keep the dryer sheets in your shoes whenever you aren't wearing them and hopefully your problem is solved! - Msmindy (06/15/2013)
Purchase a scent bud from bath and body works! - Paigeh (07/11/2013)
Dryer sheets!! Works wonders! - Anna2 (01/05/2014)

Are there different compartments inside this bag? Or is it just one big open space?
It has one large compartment with a small compartment with zipper on one side on the inside. - DDS Customer Service (10/15/2012)
Yes, there is 1 tiny compartment that's about 3X3 inches, and a water bottle holder also on the inside, but the water bottle holder doesn't have a bottom so if you put a water bottle or hairspray in it it may fall out. Do mind that there is also 3 5X6 inch pockets in the front, and one 12 inch pocket on the bottom. (: I hope this helps. I got this bag and I loved it overall. - 22ballerina4life (11/04/2012)
There is a water bottle pocket but its flimsy and It doesn't even fit my bottle. There is one smaller pocket that actually holds a lot and the shoe pocket on the bottom. There are also the three pockets on the outside. - Ballet2day (02/20/2013)
Yes it is really cute there is the bottom part you can see in the pic that opens up, inside there are two top open pocket for like a cell phone or wallet there is also a side section in the bag with elastic on top to hold your water bottle upright and a small zipper pocket at the top of the back of the bag as well. It is an amazing bag that somehow I can't stuff - it has always held everything no matter what I try to put in it! I LOVE this bag. - Msmindy (06/15/2013)
