My sensei at the ballroom dojo has requested (mandatory request) that i buy some proper dance shoes. So i’ve been on the hunt. Like everything in life, dance shoes are not cheap and I just found out i need two pairs to really call myself a ballroom samurai.
These modern dance shoes have a small heal and look like work shoes or golf shoes. The one to the right is on sale for only $200.00 to $80.00. A bargain! The only disadvantage to these shoes, the clerk told me, was that they stand out. No kidding!
Latin Ballroom Dance Shoes
Check out the heal on those puppies! There is just something wrong about this type of shoe. It looks like something Liberachi would wear. I think i’ll just be avoiding the Latin style dance for a while until i get good enough to be able to pull off a style of shoe like this. The lady at the store also told me that Japanese men prefer these types of shoes with high heals because the women wear super high heals when they dance which make the men feel short. Luckily i don’t have this problem. These ones are also on sale from $200.00 to $80.00.
I’m going ballroom dancing tomorrow night and then out for a nomihodai (all you can drink party) afterwards. So far i’ve met a bunch of interesting people. For example, a pilot for JFORCE, an immigration lawyer and foreign start up company lawyer, a veterinarian, and a graphic designer. No one speaks English so it’s a good chance for me to brush up on my Japanese. So far I’ve been studying the Tango, Waltz, Blues, Jitterbug, Samba, Salsa, and the Mambo. It’s great fun and awesome exercise.
