For the Ladies…

First off ladies,  Kathy Reyes who was to be here for a special Ladies Bachata Styling class will not be in on Friday afterall.  So Sad…  which means our Friday, October 15th Bachata class will be our normal schedule.  Don’t be too sad though…check out October Workshop schedule for a visit from her dance partner, Alejandro Rey. 


Oh, ladies, I have fallen in love…again!  In shoe love!  I’ve never been much of a shoe girl.  In fact, in my closet are mostly running shoes and flip-flops, and I actually prefer to be barefoot whenever possible.  However all that has changed when I saw Burju Dance Shoe line at the Dallas Bachata Festival.  I wanted every single pair!  And just as I handed over my debit card to the dealer to finalize my purchase of two beautiful pairs, Bruce walked by giving me that “what are you doing?!” look.  (The fact that he didn’t stop me secures Bruce at the top of my love list!) One of the pairs I have are the Bronze ones pictured below.  Although each pair runs between $99-199, it is well worth it in how comfortable they are,  really, I think I could run a marathon in them!

Founded and designed by Dancer/Choreographer, Burju Perez, Burju shoes is a fashion-inspired shoe collection designed to bring comfort and style to one dance shoe. Burju, known worldwide for her amazing Latin choreographies and performances, has established her dance shoe line throughout the international Salsa and Latin dance community with amazing success and now she looks to expand those same distinctive yet comfortable designs to the everyday consumer.

Her exquisite customizable collection of dance shoes also caters to the “special occasion market” including weddings and proms. It’s every bride’s, bridesmaid’s, and party-goers’ dream to find and exceptional pair of shoes to carry her from day to night in style, without compromising her feet.

“We want stylish shoes with the comfort, engineering and athletic-ability of a dance shoe,” says Burju of the line, “There is no reason beautiful shoes can’t be comfortable. There’s something for everyone here and if you don’t see it, then design it for yourself and we’ll create the one of a kind, hand-crafted shoe just for you!”
