How can I have a safer and better first time partner dancing experience?
Wear the proper footwear. In order to give you proper balance and coordination on the dance floor, your ballroom/Latin dance shoes must fit snug. It is important to brush the suede soles regularly with a proper suede brush to free them of any wax buildup from dance floors. If there is a buildup of wax and dirt on your shoes, they will become slippery and cause the soles to wear sooner. Please do not wear your dance shoes outdoors as they are designed specifically for dancing. They are a necessary part of your dancing and will enhance and make your dancing more enjoyable.
