    Heel height for standard shoes

    For me it is not the height of the heel but it is important for me to have the "flare heel." That way, I have more of a base to distribute my weight. I am more comfortable and stable with a flare heel at 2.5 than a pointy one at 2 inch.

    Cancelling Competition

    Latingal, that is simply horrible. Seen as how it was not your fault that you couldn't compete, as your pro was injured, why didn't he contact the competition himself and explain the situation? I have never had a problem getting refunded and trust me, I have had a lot of injuries and...

    Cancelling Competition

    I have had to cancel competitions numerous times before due to injuries and illness (hopitalization) and have always gotten either full refund or credit for the following year. I have never ever participated in franchise competitions though, so I cannot speak regarding those, sorry. Hope you...

    Rhinestoning Shoes

    I want to add a little rhinestone accent to my shoes but I want the color to match the shoe color rather than be crystal AB or crystal. Any advice as to what the best match for a nude color swarovski would be? I was thinking maybe the Light Topaz color but was sure some of the experts here...

    Ballet Beautiful

    I have seen this before and I remember thinking the prices were so expensive. I cannot speak for the quality of her teaching. IMHO, I don't think a beginner should start ballet online. As ballet is a technique-based dance, it requires a strong foundation and I do not believe that virtual...

    City's Dance Sport Challenge

    Dec 15th...Who's going? IIRC, last year they did not post the heat lists until very close to the competition, like the day before. Also, according to the website, they are still accepting entries, so I am curious regarding when...

    Comp Organization--Stuff We Like - Stuff We Don't Like

    HATE HATE HATE comps that do not allow outside photography. Also do not appreciate places that only have one, very crowded area to practice before (esp. when that one area has a floor that is not at all conducive for dancing.)

    Pro-Am Partner New York

    My coach says it is easier for a girl to find a husband than a dancing partner!. (In my personal experience I have found it to be true!) Now that your teacher is on the lookout, I am sure someone with come along. Also, go to some of the ballroom practice parties in your area (even the studios...
