It is not necessary to buy shoes; however, having the correct form of footwear is always beneficial in dancing classes.

Irish Dancing

For Irish dancing, we use both light shoes (also called poms or ghillies) and heavy/hard shoes.

For Beginners, jazz/ballet shoes or runners (athletic shoes) may be worn. 

For Improvers / Intermediate/Advanced, dancers should have both light and heavy shoes.

Shoes can be purchased at Talbot Irish Dance Centre (63 Talbot St, Dublin 1), Fays Dance Shoes (Upper Dorset St, Dublin 1), or Dance World (various locations).

Sean-Nós Dancing

For sean-nós dancing, any shoe with a hard sole and low heel will do.

Some dancers prefer to wear set dancing shoes (hard leather soles) or tap shoes (steel pieces on the heels and toes). It's also possible to attach taps to a pair of shoes that you may already own.

Please do not wear runners, high heels, flats, or Irish dancing shoes (hard shoes), as these are unsuitable for sean-nós dancing.
