Which shoe should I choose for modern jazz or contemporary dance?

  • Because modern jazz dance has its origins in African-American dance, many dancers are barefoot. It is true that dancing while feeling the floor and its imperfections can completely change the way you stand. However, depending on the season and the place where you practice, the dance sock allows you to prevent the cold. For this, I suggest special socks for dance such as the Blochsox which supports the foot and facilitates rotation or the Toesox which have separate toes and crossed elastics on the instep like a ballet slipper.
  • With contemporary dance, the foot thongs, make it possible to keep the sensation of dancing barefoot but only protect the support surfaces of the metatarsus when rotating or sliding on uneven ground.
  • Nevertheless, for the Broadway and music-hall version of modern dance, the jazz shoe is really an integral part of the woman's modern jazz dance outfit. With or without heel, high or low, the modern jazz dance shoe is usually black, but can also be white or flesh. The height of the heel, when present, is light and measures 1 cm. When the heel measures more than 4 cm, it is worn in a jazz cabaret spirit. The dance Sneaker is also popular for street jazz, which gives your look a hip hop feel. For the show, the jazz shoe can include a lace. To prevent the risk of falling caused by an untied lace, many models are elasticated without laces.
