What is a heel spin?
I'd just said this to myself out loud when I read your post. I'm curious too.
Probably meant a heel turn?
probably... but I assume nothing anymore...
sorry must not be a prolific problem but a lot of girls, in my experience, when they first start dancing and are required to turn or spin especially in a stationary free spin do so on their heel not the ball of their foot and the slight (normally) grippiness of the heel guard prevents this. not a heel turn which an actual step in the standard dance and looks quite nice.
huh. I can't imagine spinning and not lifting my heel, even when I first started out. Hustle was one of the first dances I learned. Lots of turning!
Yeah.....since day one, my spins have always been on my toes. I can't imagine try to do them on my heels.
Sounds like it would be even harder to me
Spinning on my heels happened to me when I was still getting used to my practice shoes. Definitely not good for the feet. I found that it had to do with having a shorter, wider heel than I was used to. Luckily, I nipped it in the bud because I knew it was a bad habit.
