People should see their doctor and, perhaps, a physical therapist to have their pain issues diagnosed and treated properly. Pain is a warning signal that something may be wrong.

Dance shoes often don’t have the kind of cushioning and support that other exercise shoes offer. Style should not completely replace sensibility. Dancers should be careful about the footwear they select.

People can challenge themselves more than they should. As with any activity, pacing yourself, listening to your body and knowing your limits is important.
