What's In Your Dancebag?

Andrea Simpson-Fowler

Lip Balm

It is very dry in the Yukon.

Nail Files

To file down cracked and broken nails, which occur from time to time due to all of the random heavy and awkward lifting a studio owner has to do.

Toothbrush and Paste

Smiling is an integral and essential part of my extremely diverse job.

Ibuprofen

For stress headaches.

Chocolate

To make up for the stress headaches.

Vitamins

To make up for the chocolate habit.

Hair Clips

For flyaways. 

Asthma inhaler

Everyone here has a dog.

Socks

In case the studio floor is cold, or if I need less friction for pirouettes.

Memory stick

For easy transfer of video, music and photos.

Mini Flashlight

To find the studio keyhole during dark Yukon winters.

Stickers

For kids in the studio who need a distraction for the moment.

Andrea Simpson-Fowler has been dancing in the Yukon since 1981. She is the founder of Extremely Moving Youth Society and the Breakdancing Yukon Society. In 1999 she opened her own studio, Leaping Feats Creative. All of these organizations have a strong youth-centric mission, with a focus on excellence and outreach that has affected young Yukon dancers in many positive ways.
