    • stardancer

      hahahahaha....dancing with 2 left feet IS a bit more difficult ;)

      December 30

    • Scott Leadley

      Any comfortable flat or low heel that's not too slippery but allows you to pivot on the ball of your foot. Sneakers are a distinct second. You can dance in sneakers, sandals and high heels (in order of increasing difficulty), but it's harder to learn in them.
