TAP SHOES
Buying tap shoes can be confusing as there are many different styles of shoe and ‘tap’. Below is information that may help.

Primary Tap Shoes

  • For very young dancers any standard aluminium taps will do.
  • Shoes should have both heel and toe taps, as this encourages excellent technique right form the outset!
  • Taps can be bought separately but will then need to be fitted to the shoes. Not all cobblers know how to do this! A properly affixed tap should follow the contour of the shoe (both heel and toe).
  • Black leather or canvas shoes with a single bow or laces are suitable.
  • A low heel is essential.


Tap shoes for higher Grades and Vocational Exams

  • As dancers progress the quality of the taps will make a difference to the sound when dancing.
  • If possible invest in shoes that come with very good taps affixed.
  • ‘Bloch’ and ‘Capezio’ both make good quality, strong shoes.
  • Please buy ‘standard’ soled shoes as opposed to ‘split soles’, as they encourage good technique.
  • One of the most popular styles among both beginners and professionals is ‘The Oxford’ a lace up shoe with leather uppers.
  • A low, broad heel is best. Do not buy shoes with ‘cuban’ heels.


IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Do not buy ‘Jingle Taps’. These are not allowed in ISTD dance exams.
  • Please check shoes regularly as taps with very loose/ill fitting screws can do damage to the floor.


ONLINE
There are many online retailers. Please bear in mind that it can be especially complicated buying shoes online as sizes and manufacturers vary - you may find it easier to buy shoes from local dance stores.

Here are a few links to Online Dancewear companies that you may like to try for other items:
