Flip Flop into Summer

Looking for cute shoes this summer? Well look no more! Flip flops are a foot's best friend this time of year because of their versatility and simplicity. Whether paired with a cute bathing suit cover-up, a sundress, or a quick foot fix in between dance classes you have yourself ready and rocking for anything. But not so fast- before you shop, here are some helpful pointers!

Find a perfect match: Make sure your foot fits comfortably and doesn't go beyond the edges of your shoe. This will not only cause unwanted blisters but it's uncomfortable too!

Spoil your feet: Though flip-flops are a seasonal shoe, dig deep into your pocket and invest in a sturdy pair! Leather is always a good choice; they're cute, practical, and extremely durable. You'll get a lot of use out of them!

Don't over use: If your favorite flip-flop has a perfect indent of your foot, it's time to toss them away. This means you have little to no support and cushioning which may lead to future foot pain.

Bend and snap: When purchasing a new pair of flip-flops, be sure to bend them a little first. If they bend in half, don't get them!

 

So give your tired and cramped feet a break for a little while. Flip-flops are a great way to let your feet air out in between rehearsals so spoil your feet with luxury and style, don’t let anything get in your way this summer!

But how can you dance safely and productively in the great outdoors? We got pro tips from Mike Tyus of Jacob Jonas The Company and Xin Ying of Martha Graham Dance Company, both of whom were dancing outside long before COVID-19 hit.
