Stage Makeup for Performers - Dance
Performers like dancers, skaters, gymnasts, pageant contestants, actors, singers, cheerleaders and musicians often perform live on stage.
Dance Makeup Case
For dance competitions, having a good quality makeup case SHANY Cosmetics SHANY Premium Collection Makeup Train Case, Hot Pink Diamond is essential.
I used to use a fish tackle box (plastic) and that worked well most of the time - but unhinged once or twice with makeup all over the floor - not good during the stressful time of a dance comp.
This case is fairly new and seems to be pretty sturdy - has great reviews as well. Compare those to a train case-caboodle.
