It is quite common that followers have balance problems. Untrained feet are usually weak in the ankle, metatarse, and toes. Wearing high heels will be always an extra challenge for ladies.
Be in control of your high heels and not your stilettos control you.
A short but regular workout for your feet will make a big difference.
1. Ankle warm up.
Rotate your feet, one after the other, clockwise and counterclockwise, 10 x each. These smooth circles will be beneficial for your embellishments.
2. Flexibility for your toes.
Spread your toes as much as you can. Try to “grab” the floor. Work out with a towel. Each foot to repeat 10 x.
Point and flex your toes. This exercise helps you to create a nice and well-defined detail in your walk or in your embellishments.
10 x point and flex on each foot.
3. Strengthen the metatarse.
Go on the balls of your foot, one after the other and then both feet together. You may even strengthen the impact by lifting 1 foot, that all bodyweight is in the foot that does the exercise. 10 x each, please.
4. Give your toes an extra workout
Press into your toes even more. Shall you feel pain, do not force it, please. Repeat several times.
This exercise will give extra power to your toes to stabilize your foot when it gets wobbly.For example, you are wearing old shoes which are a little worn out.
Trained and untrained metatarse shown in the 2 pictures below.
5. Awareness of movement.
The development of movement in the walk is in this order:
toe – metatarse – heel and heel – metatarse – toe
Focus on this order of event and practice.
When you step, start with a soft touch from the toes, then using the metatarse and finally settle the heel on the floor.
When you lift your foot you start from the heel over the metatarse and last are the toes to lift from the floor.
The toe is the first contact to touch and the last to leave the floor.
Practice this exercise mindfully to muscle memorize the whole process. Repeat 5 x each foot, departing and arriving.
This exercise will not only give you stability in the tango walk but is also the basic pattern in many of embellishments.
Soon you will love your feet and start to enjoy not only your stilettos but also your ladies technique workout.
