Ballroom Dance Shoes:

If you don’t have ballroom shoes, wear comfortable shoes with a leather sole.  To ensure your shoes stay in place while dancing, we recommend shoes that lace-up or have an ankle strap.  High heels are not recommended as they may damage our floor.  (Ballroom dance heels are fine).  If you plan to dance regularly we recommend that you invest in proper dance shoes; they do make a difference, even for beginning dancers.  Ballroom dance shoes have flexible suede soles that make it easier to move and turn and they are remarkable more comfortable than dancing in street shoes.  Dance shoes also protect your partner.
Dance shoes are not required for Intro To Social Dance, Intro To Salsa & Bachata, or Shall We Dance.  If you continue dancing via group classes (FUNdamentals) or private lessons, ballroom dance shoes are required.
Before you purchase shoes please consult our Guide To Buying Dance Shoes
