HOW TO CHOOSE SHOES FOR DANCING?

So, you decided to start dancing, but do not know to go to you in sneakers or sandals. Or have to bring socks, and then how it goes…

Tell.

There are several important criteria that you should pay attention to when choosing:

heel (height and stability)
clasp (heel and foot fixation)
sole
external criterion.
Now more. The best option for club Latin classes will be ball shoes for the Latin American program. They combine all the necessary parameters, moreover, due to the convenient adjustable clasp, shoes will sit like a glove, besides there are many options for straps and heels. Don’t be afraid to try many options! But if you decide to take ball shoes, there is a very important point – the size! Shoes should be half the size. To fingers was back to back with the soles! This is necessary in order to be comfortable to pull the sock with supports and poses. Shoes the size of a little more will not give you this grace.

If you decide to do shoes from your wardrobe and not to resort to the help of professional stores, then you will approach sandals on a small (5-7 cm) heel with a clasp that will fix the leg well. So that when you step sandals or shoes do not squish. It is better to avoid large jewelry made of stones or metal jewelry on shoes, as you can injure yourself or a partner. Too high a heel is better to leave for dates too.

For Kizomba classes can also be suitable shoes for Argentine tango. They differ from the ballroom in that there is a rigid and stable sole. Since in tango the partner’s body is always at an angle and at a step a good emphasis in the leg is necessary, it is very convenient. For Kizomba is also suitable.

Why not sneakers?

If you are just starting to do salsa or bachata, then you can train in sneakers, but the feeling of the dance will be completely wrong! For Kizomba is quite critical! Statement of the case, including the hip, suggests an S-shaped bend of the body, and the easiest to achieve it with a heel. Step and technique will be given much easier, in the quality of dance will grow in been faster.

Not suitable for club latina – stepowski, shoes for flamenco shoes for folk dances (including the so-called teaching).

You can also meet jazz girls. More common of the two types of leather, soft as autumn boots and the second option crossbones type. And in those, and in other very conveniently. Very. However in krossovkah difficult to dance salsa, the sole does not slip and stall all the rotation, but otherwise, it’s convenient, of course. And then you might think that I recommend them for training, but no) the Partner should be feminine, and all the elements of the wardrobe, including shoes, should emphasize this, help in plastic and decorate the movement. It doesn’t matter that you dance. Partner dance is for, so we felt the power and feature flooring.
