Want to start dancing for all of the amazing health benefits? (Think, improved balance, brain cognition, heart, lung, muscle, and joint improvements.) If you’re new to dancing or even if you used to be a pro, the shoes you wear make a huge difference to how smoothly your steps will go.

This week, we’re highlighting our favorite dance shoes – for both women AND the guys – that are perfect if you’re brand new to dancing or just need a new pair for that night on the town.

For the Guys

Gogodance Men’s Ballroom Dance Shoes

If you’re looking for a dressier shoe when you take your partner out to spin around the dance floor, these are perfect! Made of premium leather, these shoes are flexible and breathable. The anti-slip sole helps you to stay confident while you move around the dance floor. At only $34.92 (or lower), these shoes are a steal! Take note of the size you’re getting – many of the reviews suggest you order a half size up.
