Charlotte, NC – November 7, 2012 – Katie Hughes,PhD, Owner of Dance Yourself Fit LLC recently attended the annual Curves Convention in Las Vegas, NV where over 2000 Curves franchise owners, managers and others gathered. The convention took place from October 19th-20th. At the convention, Dance Yourself Fit had a booth set up to showcase their best-selling traction modifiers, Slip-On Dancers®.
Dr. Hughes, the inventor of Slip-On Dancers®, was on hand to speak with the attendees about using this novel product.

“We love these events were we can meet with users of our product and learn what they love so we can continue to create products in colors they love that really meet their needs,” remarked Katie Hughes.

Slip-On Dancers® are an innovative, first-of-its-kind product that turns running shoes into dancing shoes, making twisting and turning easier while reducing the risk of knee injuries.  People who love dance and fitness programs love Slip-On Dancers® because they don’t have to buy dance shoes to participate.  You can use them whether you like to line dance or do a dance workout game on your XBox in the comfort of your own home.

This convention comes off the heels of a very successful showing at the Zumba Convention in Orlando, Florida, where over 6,500 Zumba instructors from across the nation learned more about Slip-On Dancers® and often, shared their experiences. Kate, a satisfied customer from Vermont, said, “I love using my Slip-On Dancers® when I teach Zumba classes on carpet. They allow me to keep my knees safe while still using my favorite sneakers!”
