Practical Tips for Wearing Your Heels to Class
Wearing 6-inch heels can take a bit of getting used to and can have an effect on your feet and calves. There are a few things you can do to minimise the effects.
Train Your Feet
As tempting as it may be to head off to pole class as soon as your new heels arrive on the doorstep, breaking them in is essential if you want to avoid twisted ankles, blisters etc. Don’t go from dancing on tiptoes to wearing 6-inch heels overnight. Take time to train your feet and calves. Take about 10-15 minutes each day to practice standing and eventually walking in your new shoes. Train yourself to walk in them before you head to class and start doing your pole walks, hip dip to pirouettes in them. If you take the time you will feel more confident dancing in them and you will be more capable of manoeuvring around the pole in them.
Massage and Stretch
After the class massage and stretch your feet and calves. Use a foam roller under your foot while you’re sitting down. Simply roll the sole of one foot around on it whilst you stand up. repeat on the other foot. Then sit down and massage the back of each calve by rolling it backwards and forwards over the sides and back of each calf. Your calves will thank you when you next go for a massage. A calf massage after wearing 6-inch heels for months and months can lead to short tight calves.
