March Rivoli

I’m so excited to be back in the Ballroom and more specifically at the Rivoli ballroom social again.  I missed February as my friends were getting married – don’t get me wrong, that was most excellent, but it did leave a big-old-gap between Rivoli visits.  However, that did also mean that I was as excited as a child at Christmas before this visit.

There were a good few of the regulars there thankfully – so I managed to spend nearly all of the 4+hrs dancing ~ sweaty fun!






New Ballroom Shoes

I got my first pair of ballroom shoes before Christmas, but today is the first time I’ve been able to wear them because I’ve had problems with my feet ~ Morton’s Neuroma. 

As a result my osteopath banned me from wearing heels for a month. One month turned into two, then three, then four. It’s only now, nearly five months on that I’m slowly working my way back into heels. But into Ballroom, rather than Latin shoes that I’ve been wearing since I started dancing two years ago, as I’m studying for Ballroom Latin Medal test… and potentially competing..! And for those, I definitely need to be in heels,not flat jazz shoes. 

These little badgers are so bright and clean, they scream for attention across the dance floor.  Several people today asked if they were new. Oh so very very shiny and new.
