Each day, the studio sees a lot of traffic. Each student has their dance bag, dance shoes, apparel, and other belongings. And, for many students, a lot of the items look exactly the same.
The only way to keep items organized and in proper ownership is for everything to be labeled! This way, if a student picks up the wrong item or it is left behind, the item can be easily located and returned to its owner.
Here are some tips for labeling:
(1) Label EVERYTHING. Shoes, leotards, tights, jackets, sweatshirts, t-shirts, water bottles, bags, etc.- everything is worthy of a label!
(2) Use a silver marker to label black items (such as jazz shoes or tap shoes).
(3) Use a sticker label on all belongings (e.g.Name Bubbles).
