You might be dancing for a few more hours a day than you are used to at a Summer School. It's a good idea to include some gentle stretching each day to make sure your muscles don't get too tight as the week progresses. Why not pack a Tendu Stretch Loop - great for stretching in the box splits or for gentle hamstring stretches.
The Foot Roller is also a great item to pop in your dance bag as it's perfect for gently massaging sore or tired foot muscles. Or try a foam roller for gently massaging tired leg or back muscles.

Spare Tights or Socks
Don't forget to pack spare tights or dance socks! If you're going to be doing a lot of dance classes at your Summer School, consider packing a pair or two of the new Compressions Dance Tights by Silky Dance... Designed to help make dancer's legs feel less tired after long periods of dancing, these tights feature graduated support technology, which has been medically proven to enhance blood circulation to the legs and muscles.
