It is so important that your feet and ankles are warm before you start your dance classes and that you keep them warm in between dance classes too. Warm Up Booties are very popular with everyone from students and teachers to professional ballet dancers wearing them!
We often start our dance classes with warm up exercises and certainly in a ballet class the first couple of exercises that you are likely to do are pliés and battement tendus. You need good mobility in your ankles for these steps so it makes very good sense for your ankles to be warm before you start the class!
Kimberley always wears her Tendu Warm Up Boots before she starts teaching. Not only is this safer for her body but it means that she can demonstrate the exercises to the best of her ability right from the beginning of her class.
Whenever Kimberley is teaching on our Ballet and Dance Courses she always recommends that the students wear their Warm Up Boots in between the classes as it stops them walking around in bare feet and it helps to keep their muscles warm in between classes too.
Our Tendu Warm Up boots have a lovely warm lining, which makes them very comfortable and I love the stylish trim on the top that looks great worn over my teaching leggings or tights.
They are so comfortable that Kimberley often wears them at home as slippers too!
