This class helps you break down the way you walk and dance, so that you can be more comfortable and effective in your motion while wearing skyscraping heels. This is a class on making your footwork look footloose and fancy-free while wearing fabulous, but frightfully fantastic footwear. Students will receive a handout, but should also bring notebook and pen. Students should wear comfortable movable clothes that expose at least ankles and knees, but don't need to wear full workout attire. Students should bring high heels that they want to perform in.
