Odds and Ends for this week's dance action in Tidewater

Hello Dancers... From our Weekly Newsletter

***********************************

Hello Dancers,

Thanks again to all those who came out to our dance last Sunday. A special
thanks to Ernie for helping out with the WCS lesson last week. Judy and I
got plenty of rest this week and are all set with a basic Night Club
Two-Step class at 6:30pm and a West Coast Swing class at 7:00pm.
*************************************************************
Last weekend we had a great time at the Atlantic Seashore Dance Faire in
Williamsburg. Although we were disappointed that fewer dancers took
advantage of this great local event we found plenty of opportunities to
play, learn and relax while attending.The music was great and there were so
many good dancers to watch and learn from. We have information and forms
from both the event and hotel for February 2004 and will bring them each
Sunday.
*************************************************************
 - Upcoming special events over the next few days:

Feb 14th - Roberto's Valentine dance. A romantic affair at a great price.
$25.00 per person. Paid reservations required. E mail or call for more
details. 757-877 0610. robertoinc@aol.com
++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Taking care of an important connection.

The connection of the dance shoes or boots and the dance floor. These all
important items often get completely ignored until we start dancing.
Although shoes and boots made for dancing can make your feet happier many
dancers feel just as comfortable in good street shoes. There are several
things to look for in a dance shoe or boot. How do you like the fit? Most
boots are worn tighter than shoes. Tight boots are ok as long as you have
some toe room. Too tight in the toe box and you soon develop sore spots on
the toes. Loose shoes are ok if you like your feet to breath but too loose
or you wind up with a heel blister. An older shoe can be made to last longer
by adding a pair of inner soles. Get a good pair made from cushioned suede.
All dress dance shoes have a glued on suede sole and heel. These can be
replaced by a good shoe shop when worn. Most dance boots come with a similar
leather sole but not glued on. The boots also have rubber heels unless
covered or ordered otherwise. Thankfully the rubber is non-marking. The
soles of both should be kept clean and sometimes brushed with a special
steel brush. Brush the soles and you slow down. Let them get slick and you
slide around. Keep them clean and brush or not depending on how you like the
feel. It's a good idea to keep an old pair for when you are dancing on a
dirty floor. Some dancers are now wearing dance sneakers. Some like them and
others complain about the rubber soles. A good alternative is to get a
bowling shoe. They are cheap and can be found in most department stores.
Judy found hers at a Super K-Mart. Lots of shaggers wear street shoes. If
you have a good pair with leather soles and heels they may work well for
you. The Lindy dancers like sneakers with tape on the soles. They may be
onto something judging by their dancing.

Many types of hard floors surfaces can used for dancing. To non-dancers one
is as good as the other but we know different. To us dancers wood floors are
the best and a wood floor that is not directly fastened to concrete is
better. Anything else may work but not for long. If you belong to a club
that has regular dances try to find out who maintains the floor. Hopefully
they take suggestions. A clean, dry floor is much better than a highly waxed
one. Some waxed floors can feel like glue was spread out. Some dancers carry
a little corn starch or baby powder. I have found that shuffleboard wax
works better but a little goes a long way. It's VERY slippery. Anything like
that added to the floor will clog up the shoes and get tracked everywhere.
It's best to not put it down unless everyone is ok with it.

The bottom line is that with a good wood dance floor and well fitting shoes
you are free to enjoy the dance rather than worry about your sore feet.
