Best heels for heels dance class

For Heels dance class, dancers and students wear high heels dance shoes. However, if you are a beginner, I recommend you to start with a lower heels. Here are bellow my personal recommendations for heels for heels dance class.

From my personal experience, I recommend starting with a 2 3/4 inch flared heel like Heel 1995#.

Flared heels are thinner in the middle but thicker on the ground, providing better stability than stiletto heels.

One you get confident, try a 3 1/3 inch flared heel (heel 5059#), 3 1/2 inch flared heel (heel 688#) or 4 inch flare heel (Heel 23349#).

When you are a more intermediate to advanced dancers, opt for a stiletto heels. Such as a 3 1/2 inch stiletto heels, 3 1/3 inch stiletto heels or a 4 inches stiletto heels.
