What is special about a pair of ballroom dance shoes?
Flexibility, weight, support, grip and (for the ladies) heel placement.
Dance shoes are crucial to achieving proper technique as well as protecting the body. When dancing, the feet must be well supported and yet able to flex, point, glide and turn. Quality ballroom shoes provide both support and freedom of movement thanks to their hand selected lightweight leather and highly skilled, refined manufacturing process.
The suede soles of dance shoes are designed to give exactly the right amount of grip to allow light, controlled gliding and the heel shape, specifically the heel placement of women’s shoes is carefully engineered to improve balance and steadiness.
Achieving the right fit is a must for comfort and safety. At La Danse we hold a wide range of styles, widths and heel heights so that dancers can try on a variety of shoes to find the perfect style and fit.
