Jazz dance shoes, or in other words jazz shoes, belong to the dancer's basic equipment. It is important that they fit perfectly so that the feeling of dancing is as good as possible.
In this article, I`d like to help you choose the right jazz shoes.
As I have mentioned, high jazz shoes are often used by folk dancers, such as the Slovak Lúčnica. In contrast, for classical jazz dance, low shoes are used more often. Lacing or putting on laces is more of personal preference, although e.g. mothers and children of disco dance or majorettes prefer slip-on, without strings for practical reasons.
From the above, I would like to emphasize the suitability of the full sole for folk dancers. This type is more suitable for stepping on the heel more than jazz shoes with a split sole, especially for small dancers. There is also a difference in the suitability of the rubber sole for disco dances, majorettes and so on. This sole is more suitable for stability in acrobatic elements (jumps, impacts). Conversely, the suede sole is more suitable for styles that require slip and rotation.
Inside the shoe
Of course, the antibacterial insole is more comfortable and safer in terms of hygiene during training.
When choosing the right jazz shoes, choose according to what`s important to you. The style you are going to dance will tell you a lot. You can adjust other details as you wish. Check out examples of individual types of models of jazz shoes with my description in the attached video.
