What's In Your Dancebag?

Simon "Klassic" Xavier

My laptop
I never know what sort of mood I will be in when I teach, so I like to have all of my music at hand.
 
A pair of kicks
I like having that extra pair: one to look fresh in, another to get down in.
 
Another cap or fedora
I am a hat freak, to me each one has its own feel. Also I sweat a lot so I carry one just for chilling.
 
A shirt and sweat rag (maybe a second pair of pants)
Well, I sweat a lot and I may need to change my shirt during a session or a battle. The sweat rag just keeps the sweat out of my eyes.
