Every Dancer Needs The Right Tools For The Job
If you are taking dance classes, appropriate footwear is essential. You can't very well run in ice skates, nor can you reach your full potential in dance if you don't have the right tools for the job. Often students attend class wearing regular street shoes which are heavy, inflexible and allow no breathing or wiggle room for your feet. Dance shoes are lightweight, flexible and give your foot plenty of freedom to move while keeping your heel securely locked in place. Often made of suede/leather, they allow for smooth, frictionless turning and pivoting, unlike street shoes with rubber soles that cause friction and unnecessary pressure on the knees and ankles.
