Inside Her Bag...

Tyler attends University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston Salem, North Carolina where she is a high school junior in the pre-professional ballet program. Tyler lives on campus where her days may include academic classes, ballet and contemporary classes, costume fittings, rehearsals and performances. Let’s take a peek inside Tyler’s dance bag. 

Q+A with Tyler

Tell me about your dance bag.

I love using my Herschel Backpack as a dance bag! This is my first backpack dance bag.  I like that it stands upright, so it stays better organized and is easier to access.  I secure my mesh pointe shoe bag to the leather strap on the outside.  And a backpack style is great for crisscrossing the UNCSA campus.

What are the must haves for your dance bag?

A thera-band, extra pointe shoes, and a good snack.

What is your favorite studio snack?

Dark chocolate and cherries and almonds.

What is your favorite recovery food?

Almond milk.

Which pointe shoe do you wear?  

I wear Stellar Lights by Suffolk.  I get the shanks nailed to give me a custom fit.

Do you remember your first recital?

Yeah - I was a "black cat"! My favorite part was getting to wear a tail on stage

Share one thing we may not know about you.

Aside from dancing, I love to bake. Oatmeal bars, smoothie bowls, and homemade granola are some of my favorite things to whip up.
