Wondering why you need to buy yourself a special pair of shoes for dancing when you can wear your favourite pair of blahniks?

Amber Ben | Designer / Director of Vivaz Dance, gives you 5 important reasons why you need to wear dance shoes for dancing - and not your regular street heels:

1. The sole is flexible.

2. The sole is not rubber and therefore doesnt stick to the floor causing injury and not enabling you to move freely.

3. Dance shoes are designed for comfort and support and to reduce the risk of injury.

4. The dance shoe heel is specifically positioned for your dance posture.

5. The straps and toe cage on dance shoes are designed to stop your foot from moving inside the shoe.
