Basic Ballroom Shoe

 

So what makes a shoe a basic ballroom dance shoe? Basic ballroom dance shoes are designed to be suitable for multiple types of dance from the tango to the Viennese Waltz. Beginner shoes are perfect for those who are just getting familiar with dance and want to try a bit of everything without having to commit to specific shoes for each class that are potentially pricey.

Basic ballroom shoes should be comfortable, sturdy, flexible, and supportive with a thick heel. Many people, women especially, think they are ready for the thin, sexy heels that they see in the movies but this can be potentially dangerous for them as they learn different steps and move in ways that they're not used to.

SJ Dancewears is offering beginner ballroom dance shoes again for anyone who is interested in trying a professional class, dancing as an activity on a cruise, or even just spending some one on one time with a significant other by trying something new. Stop in today for a professional fitting!

Join us in our support of the 93rd Annual City of Palo Alto May Fête Children's Parade on Saturday, May 2nd in downtown Palo Alto on University Avenue.

Palo Alto Parade

 

The parade has a message near and dear to the hearts of many -- put an end to bullying. The May Fête committee is encouraging children to be unique, to be free, and to be themselves. The committee also helps teach children and teens how to accept others for what they are and how not to alienate people. The goal of the parade is to get the community one step closer to acceptance for all different types of classes, races, genders, looks, lifestyles, beliefs, preferences, and everything that makes a person beautifully unique.

The theme of this year is UFO for the acronym unique, free, yOu. Floats will be embracing this theme with fun space creations and surely some aliens. Guests are encouraged to join in the fun and festivities by taking part in the parade and dressing up along with the theme. Don't forget to stop by one of our locations in San Jose, Santa Cruz, or Marin to get some green tights or fun makeup for an alien costume!

What You Should Know About the Complexities of Competitive Dance

American Idol...So You Think You Can Dance...Dancing With The Stars... here are some things you should know about the complexities of competitive dance.

competitive dance

Competitive Dance Costumes

 

Everything you would see on these shows usually falls under the category of competitive dance. A group of people (or a single person) perform a choreography from a self-selected dance category, and they perform it before a group of judges. The song that the group (or person) dances to is a portion of the full song, and they are usually stopped about a minute or so into the song to receive comments and marks from the judges.

Now some judges may be a bit blunt, and tell it like it is...whether your dance routine was flawless or terribly flawed...but more judges than not tend to be nice about it, and they “let you down gently” if your dance routine had problems, or they may sing high praise if your routine was spectacular.

Competitive Dance Costumes

 

Having the perfect competitive dance costume will also help your performance shine. Make sure you come to San Jose Dancwear and visit our large selection of dancewear, accessories, makeup and more.

One thing to also keep in mind is that the judges watch every move you make. Every twist, every twirl, and even every cock of the head, and their final mark also reflects how fluid you were.

There is a great deal of pressure when it comes to competitive dance, and if a competitor is told that their road to the end is at an end, you may be devastated by it but it's important to keep your head up high and keep on practicing as next year, they might have a different answer for you.

Competitive dance isn’t called that for nothing. Do you think you have what it takes? Is your wardrobe prepared? Check out San Jose Dancewear today!
