With the growing popularity of Hazelwood jazz classes, more and more discount retailers are carrying jazz shoes and other dance attire in their stores. You may even have found stores in the Hazelwood area that carry jazz shoes or shoes that mock the characteristics of jazz shoes.
Since most dance studios require special shoes for their jazz classes, it can be very tempting to try to save some money and avoid the special trip to a dance supply retailer by purchasing cheap jazz shoes from a discount retailer. However, you will want to be careful about falling for that temptation. The old adage that you get what you pay for is usually true. Your jazz shoes will need to last your for at least one dance season, so you want to be sure they are durable enough to withstand the workout they will get in each week’s classes.
In addition, having jazz shoes that fit properly will enable you to perform your jazz dance moves better and more comfortably. Most discount stores do not even have someone working in the shoe section, and when they do, it is not normally anyone who can properly measure your foot or who would know how to size you for your jazz shoes. Your jazz classes can quickly become an exercise in frustration if your shoes do not fit well or do not allow you to move properly.
When you take Hazelwood jazz classes at DK Dance Productions, we do require that you have jazz shoes. If you have questions about the best jazz shoes to buy or where to find them, we would be happy to help you. If you are interested in enrolling in jazz classes, we would love to discuss our program with you, as well.
