2. Shopping for Groovy Dance Shoes



Sorry Groovers & Groovettes, Groove does not sell dance shoes. However, here are some suggestions where you may find the right kind of shoes for you...
     •  Salseros – You may opt for Dance Sneakers or Dance Shoes.
     •  Salseras – You may opt for Dance Sneakers or Dance Heels with ankle straps.
     •  Exotic & Pole Dancers – You may purchase dance heels with ankle straps similar to those
        worn by Salseras or purchase affordable heels at Charles & Keith/ Heatwave or any shoe
        store that strikes your fancy. Just ensure that your shoes have ankle straps.
     •  Belly Dancer – You do not have to fret about footwear as you typically perform your dance
        patterns barefooted.
     •  Hip-Hop, MTV Groove & Reggaeton Enthusiasts – Trendy trainers like those offered by
        Adidas are ideal for dancing. Or, look out for dance sneakers by Bloch/ Capezio
        (read section on dance sneakers below).
     •  Jazz Dancers – You may wish to try Dance Sneakers or Jazz sneakers.
     •  Yogis – Yogis do your yoga training barefooted.

Dance Sneakers & Jazz Shoes
Dance sneakers are often characterized by split soles. Instead of a continuous piece of sole, the sole of each shoe is segmented to the front section and the back section (with no sole under the middle section of the foot).

Jazz Shoes
Jazz shoes are great for long hours of dance classes, and whenever you intend to spend long hours dancing. They're suitable for well, Jazz, or even, Salsa classes. Jazz shoes are characterized by extremely thin and flexible soles, and hence offer dancers a good feel of the floor.

You may find these shoes at the local stores listed below or, you may shop online for more choices.

Dance Heels
Dance Sneakers and Jazz Shoes may be comfortable footwear but a Salsera’s favourite pair of shoes is the ankle-strapped dance heels which make her dance moves more sensual. Local stores offer ready-made dance heels with leather or suede soles to facilitate spinning. What’s more? At Leapin’ Lizard or Denon Shoes Company, you may even custom-make your own dance heels according to the design you fancy! Expect to pay around S$50 to over S$100 for a pair.

6. Groovy Links to Exotic & Pole Dance Around the World



Gone for a holiday and afraid you’d get rusty with your Exotic and Pole Dancing? Here are our tried and tested recommendations for overseas classes. You may also find information about purchasing a portable pole through these links, or you may place an order with Groove for portable poles @ SGD$690.00.

Exotic & Pole Dance Courses Overseas

Australia

Pole Fitness Australia
Website: http://www.polefitnessaustralia.com

Description: Pole Fitness Australia, Queensland's first pole dancing studio, now operates three studios in BRISBANE and on the GOLD COAST. Quite certainly, you’ll find one near the area, you’re holidaying.

Pole Diva’s
Website: http://www.poledivas.com.au/

Description: Pole Diva’s has devised a ground breaking movement that combines the techniques of gymnastics, yoga and dance, perfected by the sensual movement of traditional stripping moves, for that extra bit of spice!

Pole Diva’s enables women to unleash their inner sex goddess without any inhibitions in a relaxed and comfortable environment. This is a fantastic new way to get a great work out and a fit body whilst inspiring your inner feline poweress to come out and play!

Jamilla
Website: http://www.jamilla.com.au/

Description: Other than holding the esteemed title of Miss Pole Dance Australia 2005, Jamilla has a string of credible certifications/ qualifications which make her the teacher to learn pole dance from. If you are ever around Sydney, try to sneak a few exotic/ pole dance classes from her.

Japan

Lu Nagata's Pole Dancing School
Website: http://www.lupoledance.com/

Description: The main difference between Tokyo and New York, where Lu (the owner of lupoledance) was studying for a year and a half, is that “New York has a long history and culture of stripping, so pole dancing is not seen as something legitimate - it's not accepted as something you do for fitness," she explains. "Whereas in Japan, it's a new thing. We don't have these ingrained associations, so a lot of people come for health, dancing and fun."

Accordingly, Lu's svelte figure can be seen gracing the pages of various women's fitness and general interest magazines, giving advice on body maintenance. Her classes, too, appeal to a wide demographic. This website offers links to Salsa sites in USA, UK and Asia.

Lu speaks fluent English, so you’d have no problem catching up in her classes.

London

Website: http://www.verticaldance.com/

Description: Our instructors swear by the classes offered by this school. Structured quite closely to the syllabus we offer at Groove, this is the place to go to get your pole dance fix when in London. This site also offers links to purchase portable poles.

Website: http://www.sfactor.com/

New York

Exotic Dance Central
Website: http://www.exoticdancecentral.com/

Description: They offer Exotic & Pole Dance crash courses for those on short holidays. Classes are small and hence conducive for learning. Easily accessible by the Subway, Exotic Dance Central also offers Belly Dance Courses and Aerobics Striptease courses.

New York

Aradia Fitness
Website: http://www.aradiafitness.com/

Description: Aradia Fitness is the first Pole Dancing Fitness Studio in Canada. This school has taught thousands of women to pole dance, lap dance and get fit with their classes, workshops, portable dance poles, pole dancing parties, bachelorette parties and ladies night out parties.
