    We strongly suggest wearing shoes that are already broken in, so if you are thinking of getting a new pair, check out some of our sponsors NOW so you have time to break them in. We suggest shoes that fit well, leather boots will be common so will dance shoes - both work great. The biggest suggestion we have is nothing with solid rubber bottoms. We have had students suggest toms, dance shoes, walmart brand shoes with soft bottoms.

    Yes, but be safe and make sure both partners agree to doing the lifts. Every guest will sign a release form before the event to attend.
