Question: What size heels do you wear?

I ask because this Saturday at Byfield Dance Experience, I’m hosting a Learn To Dance In HEELS Workshop. Taught by the one and only Esie Mensah!

You’ve seen her on So You Think You Can Dance Canada, with Keisha Chante, Jully Black, AND on MuchMusic:


It’s gonna be frickin’ fierce. I’m sure you know someone who could benefit from this kind of dance class.

But here’s the thing:

From past conversations with students and similar classes, not every lady has a pair of sexy heels they feel comfortable dancing in.

So I thought I’d ask…

…Can you bring an extra pair of solid heels this Saturday? Just in case a fellow fierce diva needs to borrow yours.

See the flyer BELOW and I’ll see you there,

PS: Best that you don’t bring a pair from ALDO. Sure they look great but let’s face it, they suck from a comfort perspective.

PPS: You’ll notice you need to CALL to RSVP. Number is at the link and on the flyer. If you don’t CALL, you might not get in. I’ll post some photos on my Twitter if you miss it… Not exactly the same but that’s what happens when you’re slow to respond!
