Fuego Dance Sneakers

These dance sneakers are truly revolutionizing the market. They are the lightest-weight dance sneakers available. I’ve got a pair myself, and they’re my favorite shoes to teach in when I’ve got hours to get through. 

All Fuego styles feature patented outsole technology including pivot points to help with spins and turns and a sole engineered for dancing on any surface. The dual pivot point on the bottom of Fuego sneakers lifts a dancer two millimeters off the ground, which boosts spin ability while reducing friction and torque on a dancer’s knees.

Giveaway winner receives: a free pair of sneakers in the style and color of choice

Jule Dancewear

Founded by former professional dancer, Julia Cinquimani, Jule Dancewear is a high-quality dancewear brand committed to producing dancewear that accommodates all body types.  Jule Dancwewear’s leotards focus on fashion and function in their sleek and comfortable designs. 

Jule is honestly my leotard obsession. I’ve got a collection of them, and each one is better than the last. They help me feel beautiful and confident. Dancewear really can have a transformative impact on how you feel as you’re dancing. Make sure you give Jule a try to see for yourself. 

Giveaway winner receives: a leotard of your choice
