Do I have to have dance shoes? If so, where would you recommend getting them?
Ruth G. asked on Oct 9, 2012
Wear whatever you are comfortable moving in. Tango shoes are specialty dance shoes—often heels for ladies and dress shoes for men—that are made specifically for dancing tango. They are well balanced and have leather or suede soles to ensure ease of pivoting. You do not need tango shoes to dance tango, however most people find that they prefer them if they plan to continue studying tango for more than a few months. Other dance shoes (ballet flats, ballroom shoes) are also comfortable for dancing tango, and street shoes with a leather sole also work well--anything with smooth bottoms will help your turns.
