Showtime Dance Shoes
I’m a huge advocate for implementing these habits in our youth, when they become adults they will have some amazing memories of feeling confident while learning something new. “Dance is a fantastic way to get fit; not only is it fun, it really gets the heart pumping,” says Julian Omidi, co-founder of the Children’s Obesity Fund. She is exactly right as we all know that dance is a sport, it is competitive, strenuous, exhilarating, and takes impeccable coordination. All of those skills can be taught and the moves can be perfected with practice. Dance is a celebration of the body and this industry is only going to grow bigger and bigger with our youth getting more involved as time goes on.
Showtime Dance Shoes offers a wide variety of Ballroom Dance Shoes.

The Atlanta Open 2013 was located in Midtown at the beautiful Hyatt Regency. As we walked up from the parking level we heard the sounds of classic jazz pouring from the street as a local musician sat outside playing the saxophone. Welcome to Atlanta. Later that day we watched dancers; I couldn’t help but think about the dedication these people have. They live and breathe for this, it is not just a hobby, it is a lifestyle. When the professionals started dancing together that evening I was astounded at how many dancers were twirling past one another yet no collisions? Impressive to say the least (they must of been wearing some good dance shoes.)
I was a dancer myself for many years, but I did tap, jazz and hip hop… this type of dancing was exhausting just to watch. Legs in the air, slip spin, lunge, dash, twirl, split… I don’t know how the women even see straight. It never bores me watching them though. I am always thoroughly entertained by these amazingly talented ladies and gentlemen.
I can’t wait to see what is in store for Atlantic City this weekend at http://americanstarball.com/

To most people Ballroom Dance is what you get when watching B list celebrities compete on “Dancing with the stars.” Those of us who know a little more about the behind scenes pressure, know that the hair, dress, and fabulous ballroom shoes are only a fraction of the big picture. This form of dance is precise and constantly evolving. As choreographers mend the traditional ballroom moves into the more modern international latin style dances.
The definition of ballroom dance also depends on the era: balls have featured popular dances of the day such as the Minuet, Quadrille, Polonaise, Polka, Mazurka, and others, which are now considered “historical” but there are influences of the styles have have stayed around.
Due to the many different styles of ballroom dance, there are also tons of custom dresses and shoes that dancers get to chose from. Showtime Dance Shoes is known world wide for their wide selection of Dance Shoes. FB International is an incredible company that provides custom dresses for their ballroom clients. http://www.fbinternationaldance.com/
