The Tap Shoe
Tap Dance Shoes
A shoe outfitted with Taps(metallic plates that cover the sole and heel of the shoe) either rivetted or screwed on. Sound quality can change depending on thickness of sole or types of taps. Types of tap shoes are full sole, split-sole, slip-on, Mary Jane’s, heeled/character, and boots.
The Flamenco Shoe
Flamenco Dance Shoes
Though male flamenco dancers wear specific shoes as well the specific shoe discussed here is the one traditionally worn by women as the percussive element that accompanies flamenco music. These shoes are heeled similar to a character heel but have nails hammered into the heel and toe allowing for the dancers to create rhythmic structures as a part of the dance form.
The Social/Ballroom Shoe
Social/Ballroom Dance Shoes
Both worn by men and women these are highly stylish shoes designed to be flexible and nimble for the tight maneuvering done by couples on club and ballroom style floors. Often times the bottom of these shoes are made from suede allowing dancers to achieve multiple and sustained spins without placing excess torsion on the knee joint.
