Hi this is Susan Hilferty, owner of Pole Fitness Miami located in Coral Gables, Florida. In this clip I am going to show you how to pole dance without heels. Now this is very important because your feet are exposed and how you actually point your feet is going to become essential when you are dancing in your bare feet. Now there is a right way and a wrong way. There is a lot of people that don't actually know how to point their feet and they might flex it. It really looks unattractive so the best way to actually point your foot is to actually flex your instep up first, okay and then arch the toes down so you can feel the instep getting as much stress as possible then you are going to curl the toes under to have a beautiful arch and this is really critical when you are dancing because it can really make it look very sensual but more polished and look like a professional when you are doing it rather than a flexed foot. So as an example when you are actually pointing your foot on the pole a good way to do it is when you come up just even take a basic pose, you are going to be arching your foot, bring it around like the letter four. We call this one the flamingo, arching the body down and pulling yourself up and then gracefully bringing that leg out and extend it, but the key is that pointed foot. So really try to focus in when you are dancing and see the foot as another muscle and you'll look great dancing without your heels. Thank you for watching this clip. This has been Susan Hilferty.
