Where There

Shoe Sliders



I now have shoe sliders available. These are the kind that slip

over the toe of your shoe with a strap around the back of your heel. Suggested Donation $15.00 per pair.

If you want me to ship them to you, just add $5 (for as many as you want). When you make a donation, indicate "shoe slider" and then send me an email (or use the "Contact Us" page) and send me your address, the number of slider pairs, what size (medium or large) and your preferred color. I need your email address so I can contact you if I have any questions. 

New Theme For April and Until We're Done!

"Better When I'm Dancing"

(Thank you, Julia, for our theme dance!)

Useful ideas

for classes 

during Covid

1. Vinyl / linoleum scraps to put over the concrete for a better dancing surface. Suggested size 6'x8'.

You can get scraps and custom cuts at Home Depot and Lowes. My scrap piece cost $25.00.

Not all stores have scraps but you can call around to find out: Home Depot

3. Whatever shoes or dance socks you used for dancing on regular surfaces work well on vinyl but the addition

of wearing "shoe sliders" over your shoes makes movement even easier. (see above)

4. For those times when we have to wear masks, the following inserts give you a little extra

breathing room: Mask Inserts on Amazon

5. Tip from Takako. Wrap painters tape around the toes of your shoes: Link to Tape Tip

It is suggested that you bring your own chair to sit in during breaks.
