Best Clothing for Tap Dancers

What to wear when you are tap dancing and where you can buy dancing apparel.

What to Wear for Tap Dancing:

  • The best apparel for tap dancing is comfortable clothing that does not restrict your body's movement in any way.

  • Some tap dancers prefer funky, street-style dancewear, some prefer to wear more elegant apparel, and others prefer their favorite exercise clothing.

  • If you're unsure about what to wear to your first tap dancing class, stretchy exercise clothing is always a good choice

What NOT to Wear for Tap Dancing:

Floor length skirts and boot-style long pants are not suitable for tap dancing because bending your knees, even slightly, can make them drag on the floor and cause you to trip. Those items of clothing also cover your ankles and feet so no one can see your dancing feet, and you can't see them yourself in a dance studio mirror.
