Get the proper sole. It is a good foundation for your dancing ability. Suede soles, new or well-brushed, give a good amount of traction, especially on the standard wooden ballroom dance floors. Suede is also known as chrome leather in some stores. Leather soles tend to be more slippery, but are a good option if you don't want to spend as much on a shoe.
Decide on the height you are comfortable with. Generally flats for both men and women have a 1 to 1 1/2 inch heel. Women's high-heels run between two to three inches.
Choose a style. Especially women. Latin dancing ballroom shoes tend to be higher with a slim heel and a much more flexible sole for all that fast twisting footwork. There are open toe styles and closed toe styles to choose from. The closed toe shoes give you extra protection when stepped on. Another thing to consider is that the edge of your toenails take a beating against your partner's shoes with all the close steps.
Choose shoes that are comfortable and have great support for your foot. They also need to hold up. Make sure there aren't any sharp edges that will press on your ankle. Look out for seams on the inside that can chafe your skin after long hours of practice. You can add arch supports for better comfort.

You may not realize it, but dancing and dance lessons are intense aerobic exercise. This fact may explain why ballroom dance has such a positive effect on ones health. I mean, would you rather spend an hour on the treadmill, or spend time doing some fun and exciting latin dancing? Dance lessons are not only great cardio, but truly a whole body workout. Many student report sore muscles after a night of dancing. Nothing is more satisfying than the feeling that you got a really good workout, even better if it didn't feel like work!! Dancing is considered one of the top five physical activities. The average adult can burn between 200 to 500 calories during an hour of dancing. Ballroom dance lessons increase stamina, flexibility, and posture. In fact, it has even shown to correct mild scoliosis in some children. If that isn't enough, dancing also releases endorphins (feel good chemicals) into your blood stream. A long stressful day at the office is nothing an hour at the ballroom dance studio can't fix! If you or someone you know has yet to experience the numerous benefits of ballroom dance lessons, send them this blog link and give us a call for information on our specials.
Imperial Ballroom, feel the passion......

Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012)
was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, the Guinness World Records cited her as the most-awarded female act of all time. Her awards include two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards, among a total of 415 career awards as of 2010. Houston was also one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos worldwide. Inspired by prominent soul singers in her family, including her mother Cissy Houston, cousins Dionne Warwick and Dee Dee Warwick, and her godmother Aretha Franklin, Houston began singing with her New Jersey church's junior gospel choir at age 11. After she began performing alongside her mother in night clubs in the New York City area, she was discovered by Arista Records label head Clive Davis. Houston released seven studio albums and three movie soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold certification.
Houston is the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits ("Saving All My Love for You", "How Will I Know", "Greatest Love of All", "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)", "Didn't We Almost Have It All", "So Emotional" and "Where Do Broken Hearts Go"). She is the second artist behind Elton John and the only female artist to have two number-one Billboard 200 Album awards (formerly "Top Pop Album") on the Billboard magazine year-end charts. Houston's 1985 debut album Whitney Houston became the best-selling debut album by a female act at the time of its release. The album was named Rolling Stone's best album of 1986, and was ranked at number 254 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Her second studio album Whitney (1987) became the first album by a female artist to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Houston's crossover appeal on the popular music charts as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for "How Will I Know", influenced several African-American female artists to follow in her footsteps.
Houston's first acting role was as the star of the feature film The Bodyguard (1992). The film's original soundtrack won the 1994 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Its lead single "I Will Always Love You", became the best-selling single by a female artist in music history. With the album, Houston became the first act (solo or group, male or female) to sell more than a million copies of an album within a single week period. The album makes her the only female act in the top 10 list of the best-selling albums of all time, at number four. Houston continued to star in movies and contribute to their soundtracks, including the films Waiting to Exhale (1995) and The Preacher's Wife (1996). The Preacher's Wife soundtrack became the best-selling gospel album in history. Three years after the release of her fourth studio album My Love Is Your Love (1998), she renewed her recording contract with Arista Records. She released her fifth studio album Just Whitney in 2002, and the Christmas-themed One Wish: The Holiday Album in 2003. In 2009, Houston released her seventh studio album, I Look to You.
On February 11, 2012, Houston died of currently unknown causes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
