The Top 8 Dance Shoes Reviewed

Dancing isn’t just a past time for a Wednesday night when you're trying to lose a few extra pounds. Don't get me wrong, dancing is an excellent way to stay trim and limber, but it's way more than that.

Dancing can be that thing that gets you through the day. First, it can be that thing you look forward to. Second, it can even become your livelihood. But like with any sport or activity, the equipment you use is key, and your dancing shoes are the most important piece of equipment you can utilize regardless of whether you're a novice or professional.

Why Good Dance Shoes Are Important


Your dance shoes are your racquet if you were a tennis player, your cue if you were a snooker player and your ball if you were a basketball player.

Different dance styles have very much come into the public eye, especially with programs like "Dancing with the Stars', and this has done wonders for the activity. With the influx of interest in the sport, the demand for dance shoes has obviously seen a massive increase. 

That also means that it can be daunting to either find your first pair of dance shoes, or a reliable replacement to your old favorites. But never fear, I’ve compiled a list of the best dance shoes (regardless of your expertise) for swing, hip hop, and tap.
