Dance shoes are an essential item to most dancers and will probably take up valuable space in your wardrobe. Ballet shoes not only in pink but also black, white, and other colours. Then for the more advanced ballerina you will need pointe and demi pointe shoes and all the paraphernalia that goes with them. The tapper will need tap shoes, the modern dancer needs jazz shoes (split sole and full sole), character / national shoes, foot thongs, Irish dancing shoes and warm up booties for before you even hit the dance floor!
