The Physics of Dancing in High Heels

So Friday night was Senior ball!!!! I hope everyone had lots of fun. I sure did, and like many of the girls, came in high heels. However, I tried my best to stay in them for as long as possible, dancing in a knee-length dress in 3-inch heels. It's a lot harder than it sounds. When you wear high heels, the center of body mass vertically shifts upward. Because of this shift, your posture becomes unstable, and increasingly so as the height of the heel increases and with increased amounts of movement. Therefore, with the significant displacement of the center of mass and dancing, which involves lots of movement, its only a disaster waiting to happen. Thankfully, I ditched the heels before that happened, although a certain friend who was pretty in pink did have to face the physics. And the floor.
