Girls Dance Bags
To have a little black dress in your wardrobe is not a surprise since it’s the iconic dress when it comes to fashion. For children, that extends to having a unicorn dress, a tutu one, or an Elsa dress. But nothing can rival a great bag your girl should have especially if she takes dance lessons.
Little dancers have a lot of things they carry around at their lessons, from tutus and dance shoes to hair accessories and personal items. For all those and other instances when they need to have a container with them, we recommend checking our dance bags for girls’ collection.
If you take a look at the list that says what a dance bag should have inside to make your little girls’ dance lesson comfortable, you’ll see that there are many items. From the most important such as dance shoes, extra tights, leotards, warm-ups, hairbrush, comb, elastic, pins, hairspray, towel, and deodorant for older girls to antiseptic wipes and lotions.
As a dancer, you need to be careful about what kind of bag you select and how you wear it so that there’s an equal distribution of weight on your shoulders. If the little one is still little, then she won’t be carrying her bag, therefore she could benefit from a duffle or a purse bag.
If the dancer is older, then a backpack is recommended for her dance lessons.
The straps should be wide and if they are also adjustable it’s a win situation.
The fabric from which the bag is made should be both breathable and sturdy.
However, it depends on how old the child is, how many lessons, and how often she’ll use the bag if she’s within walking distance from the location and will have to carry the bag herself or she’ll go with a parent. As you can see many variables should be considered when trying to buy a dance bag.
And if that advice is a simple one, choosing between all the bag types out there is no easy task.
Relax, we are here to help! Let’s explore together the wonderful world of girls’ dance bags!
Before we tell you more about our backpacks and why they are a great addition to your daughter’s collection of dance bags, let’s delve a little into the fascinating history of this particular type of bag.
Since the beginning of time, humans discovered they could carry things and people easier using their backs. At first, they would do that with the young ones, but in time they started carrying also wood, and other objects when they worked around the house.
It’s no wonder the idea of making a carrier for things that could sit well on our backs was immediately adopted.
The oldest backpack dated from 3300 B.C. and has been discovered in Italian Alps. And it surely wasn’t all glitz and ritzy as the ones we have on our website. Now, when we refer to the word backpack, it hasn’t been used until early 1900. It transformed a lot during the years and went from knapsack to rucksack and then to backpack.
The first users were the military than the explorers and finally the students.
Nowadays, backpacks are being used by kindergarten children, military personnel, hikers, mothers, and students without any specific function other than it looks good.
Our dance backpacks are something else entirely. With glitter and sequins, they can pass as any other accessory not only just a dance bag. Their volume is just enough so your little girl can use it to carry her dance gear and still be comfortable.

If we know the origin of backpacks, it’s only fair to enter into the brief history of bags. The first attested mention of bags was in Egyptian times. According to Wikipedia, many hieroglyphs show men wearing something you could call a bag around their waist.
The mention of men carrying their money or other personal items in things like pouches or drawstring bags can be found even in the Bible. With such a rich history, the bag can be considered one of the most used accessories of all time, along with shoes.
So how does a dance bag become such a wanted thing?
Little ballerinas and dancers need their gear with them. Either they have a dance lesson, or they have a show, personal things need to be carried in something.
Ballet, modern dance and other types of movement that allows her to express herself are forms of art. Therefore, personalized dance bags for little girls are not uncommon. In our bag section, you can find garment bags for competitions, tote bags with cute inscriptions and prints, tutu carriers so useful for transporting tutus in good shape, shoe bags for her precious dance shoes, and bag purses with beautiful sequins.
So when you need girls’ dance shoe bags or girls’ ballet dance bags, Sophia’s Style can provide them for you.
Duffle bags are what you might consider cute dance bags for girls. Why is that?
Well, for one, it comes in beautiful colors and patterns. The fabric while is a quality one, is also printed with words like ballerina, gymnast, and dance. And what little girl doesn’t love to give her bag a purpose? It’s like having girls’ personalized dance bags just for yourself. But why are these kinds of bags called duffle?
History says its naming comes from the town where the cloth that made the first duffle bag was produced: Duffle in Belgium. When you say duffle bag you automatically say cylindrical, large bag made of material and closed with a zipper.
The popularity of this kind of bag grew in the military also. In WW1 they tried making them work with military duties, but they were incommoding the soldiers, they were replaced by backpacks. However, in WW2, the duffle bags made a comeback and rebranded themselves as a sturdier bag. They were longer and bigger and soldiers could carry more of their stuff inside.
Nowadays we used them for traveling and for carrying dance shoes and other garments.
At Sophia’s Style, we have a great collection of duffle bags suitable as little girls’ dance bags.
From carrying their shoes and a spare change of clothes to making sure she has everything she needs for a competition, duffle bags are super versatile and useful.
Pearlescent or with rainbow glitter, from pink satin with themed prints, these duffle bags are made specifically as dance bags for little girls.
We love the colors and prints, the fabrics as well as their dimensions. They are appropriate for a little girl and still spacious enough so that she can carry all sorts of stuff inside.
