Traveling with multiple dance costumes & accessories can be a hassle. The Rac n Roll eliminates the stress of fighting with multiple dance costumes and accessories. We've put together answers to the top questions our dance parents ask about how to pick the right Rac n Roll ...
What is it?
It’s a dressing room on wheels! Which means eliminating the stress of fighting for change room space at competitions and dance recitals. The Rac N Roll is key to being organized throughout the competitive dance season - it's the duffel bag that dance moms swear by.
How Many Costumes Does the Rac n Roll Hold?
Of course the amount of costumes that the Rac N Roll can hold depends on the size and weight of each costume. We suggest setting up the Rac N Roll at home with your costumes hanging on the rod to see how much space you will need before you get to the competition venue. Don’t forget to include important things like warm-up clothes, makeup, and accessories etc.
Here are the sizes and their details:
Carry-on Rac N Roll
The smallest of the Rac N Roll Bags, the carryon measures in at 20 x 14 x 10 inches with a rack height of 48 inches, and can hold up to 5 costumes.
Medium Rac N Roll
The medium Rac N Roll bag measures in at 28 x 16 x 14 inches with a rack height of 48 inches, and can hold up to 8 costumes
Large Rac N Roll
The Largest of the Rac N Roll bags, it measures in at 31 x 16 x 14 inches with a rack height of 54 inches, and can carry up to 15 costumes.
Which Size Is Best To Buy?
The Carryon is good for once dancer or for families who often fly for competitions and thus need to consider luggage sizes. The medium size is great for families that have one dancer, or two dancers who only have a couple costumes each for competitions. The large size is more suited to dancers who have several costumes, especially bulky costumes, or families with more than one dancer who will be sharing the bag.
Once the two arms are in place, squares on the bottom of the hanging rod pop into place with the tops of the two collapsible arms. Make sure that all of the pieces are secure and you are ready to hang your costumes!
How Does The Rac N Roll Work?
You might be wondering how can you actually use this? We've found this great video where Jade shows you!"
When traveling between dance competitions and recitals, it is best to utilize the interior and exterior pockets to organize shoes and accessories so that they can be found quickly and are not sliding around the large inside compartment of the duffel.
The "d" shaped metal rings help hold costumes in place. Putting the costumes you need first on top and the last costumes on the bottom helps in case something happens and you are late for the recital/competition. That way you can just grab the first costume and get ready while your coach/teacher/parent sets the rest of the bag up for you.
When setting it up make sure that each arm slides all the way into the square opening, or you will end up with a lopsided hanging rod.
What Accessories Go with A Rac N Roll?
The best part about the Rac N Roll is that it is compatible with several add-ons that help dance moms and dads be even more organized for competition! Here are our 3 favourite accessories.
The Rac N Roll Mirror
The Rac N Roll hanging mirror is a perfect add-on to the rolling bag, since mirrors are usually just as rare to find as changing space!
This mirror attaches to the side of the rack at a great height to check your makeup and hair before going on stage. It also has a zippered pouch to keep emergency brushes, hair spray, double sided tape etc. so they’re easy to find when you need them most.
The Rac N Roll Cosmetic Case
The Rac N Roll cosmetic case is also a hanging accessory - which means it is easy to organize and quick to find.
Individual zippered see-through pouches are ideal to keep jewelry and makeup in so you can easily find them during quick changes! It also includes a small mirror that is perfect for a quick check of hair and makeup.
The Multi-Pocket Clear Garment Bag
A multi-pocket clear garment bag is an amazing bag that has clear zippered pouches--perfect for separate storage of accessories, tights, and shoes. Plus, you can put the dancer's name, studio, and which routine the costume is for in the name tag slot, so costume changes go really quick!
