If you’re one of those people that can barely even stand to walk in heels, then taking an entire dance class centered around them can sound a little absurd – why would you ever? Trust me, I know.
I had the same thoughts as I grabbed my heels and walked into the DivaDance studio in Washington, D.C. I poked my head into the class and most of the students were already there, gathered in small groups. I quickly threw my things in a corner and joined a group of two, anticipating giving the trendy stiletto dance class a try.
DivaDance is one studio that offers dance classes centered on learning choreographed routines in heels. Jami Stigliano, the founder and CEO of DivaDance, says classes don’t focus on fitness – it’s more about having fun and focusing on the wellness benefits that don’t necessarily align with the physical benefits of a tough workout.
