My daughter is five and wears a size 10 in street shoes. I recently enrolled her in tap and ballet but I have absolutely no clue as to what I’m supposed to get shoe wise. HELP?

How exciting that your daughter is beginning dance class. The first step is to speak to the dance teacher to see if there is a particular style of shoe that is preferred for the tap and ballet class. Studios often have dress codes, or a preferred shoe that will best fit the kind of dancing being done in class.

Once you have that information, you can view the shoes sorted by style on our website. If there is no teacher preference, here are some great articles with input from parents that can help you make a decision, as well as our best selling styles for beginner ballet and tap:
