Tap Dance Shoes
Tap dance has seen a resurgence in popularity throughout recent years, perhaps thanks in part to movies such as ‘Billy Elliot’ and ‘Happy Feet’, or popular theatre musicals like ‘Singin’ In The Rain’. Whatever the cause, more and more people of all ages and backgrounds are strapping on tap shoes and learning to dance.Health Benefits of Tap Dancing
The numerous health benefits of tap dancing can’t be overstated. In addition to improving a person's cardiovascular health, tap dancing can also improve your coordination, flexibility and muscle memory, meaning your mind is getting just as much of a workout as your body.For Kids and Adults!
Tap dancing can be a fantastic hobby for both kids and adults - in fact, adults will generally learn tap faster than children! If you know your right from your left, you can walk and you can sing basic children’s songs, then you have the necessary coordination and rhythm for tap dancing.How to Choose the Right Tap Dance Shoes
It’s important to choose the right style of tap shoes for your level of ability. Beginners are better suited to the classic “Mary Jane” style of tap shoe because they provide extra support, whilst experienced dancers looking to challenge themselves will generally progress to a tap show with a heel, or a split-sole tap shoe which produces more sounds. Capezio tap dance shoes have been on the market for over 100 years, making dance shoes in an assortment of these styles for both men and women. Bloch tap shoes are also hugely respected in Australia thanks to their long association with the Royal Academy of Dance in Australia.
