Dance Shoes: Partner with the Right Pair
_Once you've picked a dance style, you'll want shoes to match. Use Groupon's guide to partner-dance shoes to get your career started on the right foot._
On the dance floor, gym shoes can turn into troublemakers. Even though they're designed for activity, their rubber soles can stick on dance floors and cause knee injuries or spontaneous outbreaks of dodge ball. On the other hand, everyday women's heels aren't supportive enough to cushion feet for hours of foxtrotting. That's why professional dancers wear specially designed shoes, often slipping on a new pair as they switch to dances such as the waltz and the tango.
**Practice sneakers:** These may be the best bet for dancers more interested in social than competitive dancing, or for those exploring several dance styles. Practice shoes look much like regular cloth sneakers, with flat heels and slip-on or lace-up styles, but they don't have rubber soles. Available for men and women, these casual kicks may also be worn for most jazz and hip-hop classes.
With all dance shoes, it's important that the fit be snug but not too tight. Dance shoes should never be worn outside the studio or their soles could become dirty, scuffed, or nibbled by squirrels when you’re not looking. Before your first class, it's a good idea to call ahead and ask what shoes would be appropriate to wear; the instructor may be able to suggest a few brands available nearby.
