What the hell to wear to the class was something of a challenge. The City Dance Academy website advised wearing heels. Given my vast collection of skyscraping footwear that wasn’t a problem so I opted for my strappy Vince Camuto sandals as while they might be high, unlike other stillies I own (and regularly wear) they don’t actually make my feet bleed. Top wise I figured a blouse wouldn’t work but wearing yoga gear might be a step too far. In the end I opted for a simple grey tank top, it turns out that for someone that wears that kind of thing about twice a year I have quite the collection. Of course Jogg Jeans had my bottom half covered and between their drop crotched coolness and my never worn wife beater I felt ready to unleash my inner J-Lo.
Ok, I’ll level with you, I wasn’t exactly Beyonce mark 2 but I tried bloody hard and nearly broke several limbs in the process. But this post isn’t about my booty shaking skills or lack thereof, it’s about the Diesel denim I was wearing. Given that the jeans look like, well jeans, I was ever so slightly dubious as to quite how easy they’d be to dance in. Well having shaken my tail feather hard for an hour in those bad boys I can confirm they are THAT COMFY. Kind of like wearing tracksuit bottoms, minus the element of tragic. I would not however advise doing a high impact dance class in jeans/trousers/anything other than a bikini in midsummer, especially if you’re going out straight afterwards and haven’t left yourself time to shower!
So, Jogg Jeans have passed my trial – you genuinely can work out in them – but the challenge isn’t over yet, oh no it isn’t. Next, the tables will turn and I’ll be challenged to style the jeans into my own wardrobe. Not entirely sure how this will work but one way or another, we shall find out!

Ps) If you live in London and fancy learning (or attempting to learn) to drop it like it’s hot then you MUST check out City Academy! Besides Diva Dance it also does singing, acting, musical theatre, comedy, filmmaking, screen, writing, life skills classes and fitness dance classes. Definitely LPA recommended!
