an ideal shape or action, when worn continuously, impose upon both muscle and bone,
causing imbalances throughout our body"
[Liz Koch in Core Awareness: Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise and Dance]
Stiletto Detox IMPROVERS
"Everyone should look after their feet, especially tango dancers who wear high heels. Stiletto Detox is a great way to give your feet a bit of TLC in a friendly and fun atmosphere - highly recommended!" [Jo]
Read Amy's review on the Stiletto Detox INTRODUCTION class she attended in April:
"Tucked away in a peaceful studio behind the dancefloor in Conway Hall is a class transforming the feet of all who enter it. Stiletto Detox, the brainchild of Adriana Pegorer, uses beautifully simple methods to alleviate pain, retrain muscles and unlock a freer feeling to movement in general and dance in particular.
A well known tanguera in the UK and abroad, Adriana has been studying dance and movement practices for 20 years, qualifying in Pilates amongst others, and blending successful methods into her teaching of both Argentine tango and contact tango. She uses her specialism in feet to help dancers, runners and athletes, office workers and the elderly.
As a devotee of foot rolling, I was curious to see what more I could learn about foot health for tango. I went along to Stiletto Detox on a Friday evening to find out what it’s all about....."

*** SPECIAL launch OFFER ***
ONE COMPLIMENTARY EXERCISE BALL!!
The Stiletto Detox INTRODUCTION classes aim to soften and expand the articulations and tissues in the foot with emphasis on the ball of the foot and ankle. Each 45 minutes will lead you through a set of exercises from a standing and sitting position, sometimes with the use of a small soft *complimentary* ball. You can stay for 2 classes if you want the opportunity to get deeper into the work.
The Stiletto Detox IMPROVERS will start in May. You need to have attended at least 5 INTRODUCTION classes.
No need to get changed! Just take off your coat and shoes and you are ready to go! You can exercise barefoot or in socks/tights.
These classes are for anybody who wish to neutralize the effects of wearing high heels as well as the effects of standing/sitting for many hours a day.
