What to Pack for the Twinkle Star Dance Annual Conference

What to Pack for Twinkle Star Dance Conference

Amanda Scott

We've gotten some messages this week from attendees about being excited for the Twinkle Star Dance Annual Conference July 12-14 in Orlando (and trust me I am right there with you, I can not wait)! Outside of the link to book the extended rate on discounted hotel rooms, the most common question is “What do I wear?”

We are here to help! One of my favorite things to do when I am traveling (for work or for play) is making a packing list so I am happy to share some insight into what I am bringing to Orlando below:

A Night Under the Stars.jpg

Cocktail Party

First, what I’m wearing to the Revolution Dancewear “A Night Under the Stars” Cocktail Party. I like to start with special events because the season of life I am in right now requires me to wear more “just went to the gym” and “my hair is mostly dry shampoo” looks than I care to admit. Plus, I am in desperate need of a night out. For the cocktail party, I’m currently debating between an embellished cocktail dress or a bold jumpsuit, but either are appropriate.

Business Classes & Seminars.jpg

Business Seminars, Dance Studio Owner Only Sessions, and Workshops

If you are planning on attending the Dance Studio Owner Only sessions, Business Seminars or our brand new Workshops (where you actually set your studio calendar, assign your dress code, and create your shows) I encourage you to pack your own version of a “power suit.” That way when you decide to take the leap and make a change in your business you feel like a boss, too. I’m bringing my favorite white blazer to throw on when I am presenting, but I also love the feminine details of a lace top paired with trousers.

Disney Performing Arts Experience and Movement Classes

This is probably the easiest to pack for because the majority of my drawers are overfilled with black leggings; sorry Marie Kondo they all bring me joy. I plan on throwing in my favorite leggings, athletic top, and zip up jacket. Since, I know we will “be twinkling” I am packing a leotard and my trusty black ballet skirt. For my feet, I’m bringing tennis shoes for Fire It Up and Hip Hop classes as well as my Tap, Ballet, and Jazz shoes.

Meals and After Hours

Having traveled with Tiffany to dance teacher conferences once or twice, I know she lives for grabbing dinner out once classes wrap up for the day. I also know she also has an outfit change before said dinner out so I am going to follow suit. Since we are in Florida I am all about packing a Maxi dress. They work great for by the pool as a coverup, but add some statement earrings and a bold lip and you’re dinner ready in a flash.

I hope this helps you while you are packing for Orlando! Don’t forget to register for the Twinkle Star Dance Annual Conference July 12-14 here.
