    but if you're looking for something with more support, Bloch is a good way to go.

    I personally loved capezio. I felt that they really had a good sound and feel to them. Definitely try on a few different brands and try them out. It's important that they're comfortable because if they don't fit right, tricks like toe stands could be difficult. Get the opinion of your dance teacher as well, he/she will have some good pointers. Hope that helped! You'll love tap. It was my favorite! Sooo much fun! Good luck! :)

    Bloch is a really good shoe for beginners. There are lots of different styles that you can choose from.

    Go to your local dancewear shop and try on as many pairs as possible :)

    Since your just starting out, don't get a really high heel like this: http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-185-curtain-call....

    Something like this: http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-177-tap-on.aspx

    or this is ideal: http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-181-tapflex.aspx

    I hope this helps :)

    definitely capezio!! but DO NOT get 3 screwed shoes because they dont have sound boards under the taps and it sounds like sh-it. get the one screwed capezio shoes!!!!
