Being able to easily and safely turn and spin while maintaining balance is a crucial part of the dance.
The recommended option is to wear a pair of Ballroom shoes with a suede or felt sole.
A standard ladies dance shoe featuring a Cuban heel of 1 to 1.5 inches is a popular choice. The heel height should be comfortable. Anything higher than 1.5 inches could be challenging for beginners. Those who prefer a flat shoe with no heel might consider a slip-on jazz shoe.
