Also, tap dance may be a vocation and career choice for some people as well.
Whatever your motivation is for becoming involved in tap dancing, there are certain guidelines which should be followed when selecting these type of dance shoes. Fit, and the sound a particular tap shoe creates are of the utmost importance. However, before considering these two important issues, one must also decide on a price level for their shoes.
Many new dancers are of the opinion that they should spend a great deal of money on their first pair of shoes, and nothing could be further from being correct. In fact, the new or aspiring tap artist should make every effort to hold down the cost of their first pair of shoes, until they determine through experience whether this style of dance is something they actually want to continue to pursue. Although Bloch tap shoes do vary in price, you can feel confident that the price range which is being offered will satisfy your initial budgetary requirements.
The fit of your tap shoes relates directly to how comfortably they fit. They should fit snugly but not overly tight or loose. Remember, in many instances taps are sold separately and must be attached to your shoes. There are also tap shoes available where the taps are attached with rivets. It is also important to note that there is a difference between tap shoes which have solid heels versus those that have hollow heels. Each will produce their own distinctive sound. With that said, you will discover that some experimentation will be necessary to find a tap sound that you’re satisfied with.
The style of the shoe you select is certainly one of personal preference. Just give consideration to the fact that you may have your tap shoes for some time, and if you really don’t like their appearance you should continue to shop until you find the pair that suits your tastes. Bloch offers a large selection of tap shoes, and in fact there are 29 different shoes to choose from. Each with their own distinctive look, and they are available for women, girls, and men.
