Holiday Gift Guide Day 2: Making Dancing Feet Happy

HEAD’S UP: Where did the year go? Already? Yes, the Yuletide Season is in swing. And, yes, once again you are bewitched, bothered and bewildered. What to get auntie, grandpa, madea, nana, papa … little Virginia? Don’t get yourself into a lather when the elves at VEVLYN’S PEN are on the case. Continuing every other day or so through 24 Dec., we will introduce one or a series of products, items and brands that we believe is worthy of consideration as a holiday gift(s).


you're a fan of the cancelled "Bunheads" (see video at top) or the film, "Black Swan," you are familiar with the dark side of dance.

But there is a bright side, from fabulous costumes to nifty shoes. (Not the film "Red Shoes," which will just take us back to the aforementioned gloom.)

Ballroom Katusha 2.5" heel comes in multiple colors. ( Photos from Capezio Web site.

No it's jazz shoes, dance sneakers, character shoes, that we're talkin' 'bout. Because a dancer's feet, like the waitress' in "Most Happy Fella," suffer (My feet, my poor, poor feet.") There is such a variety of style and comfort to soothe away the pain.

Brite Lites Dansneaker is also available in black-pink and black-sky blue. (

Capezio is sort of the first name in dancewear, of course, and their dance shoes are coveted by pros and amateurs alike.

Travis Spectator 1" Heel. (

So if you are a "star" or a "star dancer," you will want to don a pair of their ballroom beauties or sport a little jazz number if/when invited to ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

Capezio dance shoes are supportive and supple, so the Latin Dancer can Salsa with grace. Swivel on a dime, turn and Cha cha on with ease.

The Jr. Tyette Child also comes in black and pink. (

Men need not be left out. There are jazz shoes and ballroom oxfords for them, too. There are even little Mary Jane-like tap shoes for the creative kid.

Get on your feet and dance!
