Hi, again folks. Here's a question that everyone probably has their own answer to, but I'd like to hear more. Who has practice shoes and why? Are they advisable if you're only dancing socially? Also, what type of practice shoes? I've read in other threads about dancing sneakers and actual practice shoes, but what's the best course of action if you're dancing ballroom, latin, street latin and swing? Currently I use my only pair of dancing shoes (Supadance, Latin T-bar) for all dancing, about 12 hours each week. I've only got the one pair of shoes as do most people I dance with (who don't do competitions) and only ever dance socially and during lessons. I figure I don't need practice shoes because all I ever do is practice, so technically the pair I have are my practice shoes...warped logic, but you know what I mean, eh? If that's the case, is there any benefit in investing in a pair of dance sneakers such as the ones on sale at Bloch?
