It's been two months since I bought my split-sole Bloch Wave Dance Sneakers, so I thought I'd share. When I was first looking into getting a pair, there was bugger all to be found that would have been useful to me, so maybe someone someday will profit from this post.

Have you ever gone to class only to find a different class entirely? Happened to me yesterday. Y. has departed for her extended holiday in the States, so we were expecting a sub in jazz.
