Smile, I read the article where you found this sentence. "Sprinting", means running very quickly and usually for a short distance. Because these men were wearing high-heeled women's shoes, they were probably not very stable on their feet and the author of this article described their awkward running as something resembling dancing. As a man, I cannot imagine trying to run in high-heeled women's shoes. When the sentence says, "Rocky Poeta took off...", it means that from the place where he started, Rocky ran quickly all the way to the courthouse.
