Footwear

   INFO FOR BEGINNERS:  

   For your comfort, safety, & our peace of mind (!) please wear shoes that are :  

 a    comfortable    

  b    that have heel and ankle support    

  c     that slide on the floor so you can turn, but are not too slippery!   

  d     that have a fairly broad heel i.e. not stilettos    

e.g. 
 

  a    trainers may be comfortable, but the soles usually grip too much

 to be suitable. 

  b    Flimsy slingbacks or mules are not suitable. Although they may

 feel cool on a hot day, there is no support for your ankle and you can

easily turn awkwardly and twist it.


  d     Stilettos of any sort are not suitable - (they do dreadful things to 

your back and cause damage to wooden floors - also to other's feet if 

you happen to step on someone by accident!!)

There are some steps where you need to take the weight on the heel,

so a broad heel base and a lowish heel are good here.



  IT'S NOT NECESSARY TO BUY SPECIAL DANCE SHOES. 

  THE MAIN THING IS THAT THEY ARE SAFE & COMFORTABLE & 

  SUITABLE FOR YOUR FEET. PLEASE ASK US IF YOU'RE NOT 

  SURE.
