What’s in a TRS teacher’s bag? Or Many Bags? Or cars?!

Around a year ago, Steph did a lovely blog about ‘prop’s in the car!’ This year, we have more teachers, therefore more props and who knows what in the car! Which is why I thought we’d give you a sneak peak into a TRS teachers car….

We got the teachers to send us photos of their very busy cars. If you have ever been a passenger in a dance teachers car you’ll know that it’s a jungle in there! Trying to squeeze between pompoms, feathers, balls, bean bags, hula hoops and so much more!

So what exactly do we have in our cars?

We created a ‘general list’ here for you:

  • Our favourite props – these are our go-to props. You maybe called to cover on short notice and you never know what or who you maybe teaching.
  • Speakers – essential for any dance teacher!
  • Spare clothes/shoes.
  • Hair ties – you always get the ones that break at the most inconvenient times!
  • Water – after all, it’s very thirsty work. Not just one bottle, often a large stash of water!
  • First aid kit
  • Food – yes, we get very hungry! And you can often spot us parked up in the car enjoying a spot of lunch! Who has time to go into a café?!
  • And due to the above… perhaps a lot of empty food wrappers! *pulls embarrassed face*
  • Notebooks and pens (basically we could put any stationary store to shame!)
  • Diary… wait… DIARIES.
  • TRS Teacher pack!
  • Laptops

And, if you are also like me… I have a few added extra’s in my car:

  • TRS Promotion Banner
  • Wellies, not just for the weather… great for gumboot dancing!
  • Boot Organiser (this has been a life saver!)
  • Merchandise… just think of me as the TRS postman, well postwoman.
  • BIN! Yes, as mentioned above, I got a bit tired of having a messy car… so I purchased a bin.

We are always on the go, so we basically live in our cars, and our work does too! But we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Maybe there’s a few extra you can think of? Let us know! And on the plus side, we can never get bored with all of these wonderful, colourful props to play with!
