Every day I hear girls say how beautiful heels are and how good their legs look when they wear heels. But in reality, when girls in Holland (except maybe Rotterdam) go out, they always wear sneakers of flats. Their feet can’t handle it. I gotta admit, my feet aren’t Beyonces feet either, but I do love wearing high heels mucho.
Dancing in high heels is a bit different than walking in high heels. Dancing is faster and you really need to control your body (or feet in this case). When you are a dancer and a fan of high heels, you gotta pay a visit to Yanis Marshall’s dance classes.
Yanis Marshall is a young choreographer, dancer and teacher. He went to Rosella Hightower School of Dance in Cannes, France. He went to New York and nowadays he is back in Paris, teaching the world the art of dance in high heels.
Why high heels? The answer is simple: “Why not?” Heels are his favorite accessory in dance.
I have been You-Tubing him for the past hours and I adore him. His moves are fabulous and he really owns the high heels.
I really love the idea of danceclasses in high heels. I’ve been dancing for over 20 years and I hardly ever dance in high heels. Even in Salsa and Zouk most of the times I danced on flats. This looks way more fabulous and makes the performance fierce. I love it!
