Heels at ILHC 2011

After Sarah Breck’s famous post on “Why Women Should Wear Heels” I thought it would be fun (but only if you are a geek) to see what the women wore at ILHC. Interestingly and if I have done my sums right*:

ILHC 2011 Strictly Lindy Open – 100% of the women wore flat shoes

ILHC 2011 Classic – 80% of the women wore flat shoes

ILHC 2011 Showcase – 100% of the women wore flat shoes

Conclusive proof that wearing flat shoes makes you an ILHC competition winner  🙂 Even the people that I normally associate with heels wore flats in this competition.

That said I really want to be able to dance in heels because I am vain and there I times when I want to dress up and do the whole heels and elegance thing. I want to be able to have the choice to wear heels or flat shoes but right now balance, poise and confidence are all, sadly, lacking when I put on a pair of heels. I wish there was one of these workshops in London:

Apparently you can:
• Learn techniques for successful heel wearing.
• Feel better in heels of any height!
• Improve balance, poise and confidence.
• Be light! Walk tall and be beautiful.

Balance, poise and confidence oh how I wish that was me in heels!  Of course once I’ve learnt how to wear my heels and done a quick online lesson with Evita Arce and they will be no stopping me! Possibly time to stop daydreaming and start practicing!
