Dancers sit on the floor a lot and have a unique relationship with their feet. They touch their feet, massage them, inspect the toes, roll balls underneath them and all of us learn at a very young age to be meticulous about keeping our toe nails at a certain length. We know that our shoes need to be fitted perfectly but when you first start dancing does the dance shoe fit really matter? Absolutely, those shoes need to be an extension of your feet. We talk to the experts about why.
