About us

I dance and teach in my SwayD boots every single day, and practically cry when I know I need to retire them to buy a new pair; I love them too much. #SeparationAnxiety~Hailee Vaughan

There are so many different nuances, thoughts, and personal opinions around this myth, around the idea of following. HOW DO I FEEL LIKE FOR MY PARTNER? Do we make the equal contribution to this dance? Do I, the follower, know better how leading should feel like? Etc, etc.

There are so many different nuances, thoughts, and personal opinions around this myth, around the idea of following. HOW DO I FEEL LIKE FOR MY PARTNER? Do we make the equal contribution to this dance? Do I, the follower, know better how leading should feel like? Etc, etc. ⠀ A dancer Tanya Karen in her article "THE MYTH OF “JUST FOLLOW” – & WHY IT’S WRONG" says: ⠀ "When I led with a talented follower, all of my moves would work perfectly. My partner would react instantly to any lead, they would do it smoothly, they would correctly interpret moves they hadn’t danced before… and they would make me feel (and look) amazing. ⠀ Their great frame, timing, and technique allowed me to invest less energy into each move so that, instead, I could think about the music and what I wanted to lead next. ⠀ And if I made a mistake, or simply had a sloppy lead, they would compensate for me and turn that error into something beautiful. ⠀ They would also inject their personality and creativity into the dance. They would understand the music, and they would add a piece of styling or footwork that complemented or developed what I had been suggesting. It was fun watching my followers’ interpretations and embellishments; together, we were co-creating a beautiful dance". ⠀ You could find more answers on your questions in her fine article. What is absolutely true, it's the fact that a couple dance is always a wonder for TWO. And balance of efforts tends to create harmony. 🌹 ⠀ ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ ⠀ ✅ Dance shoes for dancers by dancers ✅ Perfect for teaching, competing and performing ✅ Worldwide delivery ✅ Working hours: Mon-Fri 8.00-17.00 GMT+0 ✅ swayd.eu (Europe, UK) ✅ swaydshoes.com (worldwide) ⠀ #swayd #danceshoes #dancesandals #shoes #socialdance #westcoastswing #zouk #bachata #salsa #modernswing #contemporarydance #countrydance #linedance #motivation #solodance #dancearticle
