    • oh, that heel hang! So true, and without a line or blocks in her shoes to assist that – just in case – moment. The act is so simple with not much regard to form or choreography; then she pulls that heel drop. twice. I must say, I exhaled when she descended and I saw the net. Winnie, you are a hero for the working class and angles alike.
