Lyrical shoes are not a requirement to perform a lyrical dance. Lyrical dance in its purest form is completed in completely bare feet. Wearing a pair of shoes that are designed for lyrical moves make a considerable difference in the dancer’s performance. They are however not required footwear. There are some styles of lyrical shoes to choose from. The important thing for most performers is to find a pair of shoes that give the appearance of no shoes at all. The most important aspect of an invisible pair of shoes is the color. Find a color that matches your natural skin tone as closely as possible.
Next, go for the minimalist approach to lyrical footwear. The less material, the better, in most cases. You can get a pair of shoes for lyrical dance as tiny as a pair of shoes that only covers the balls of your feet. This style is often referred to as a thong. You won’t get very much support for your feet with a strap but what you will get is protection for the balls of your feet and a pair of shoes that will allow you to execute the spins that are so common in lyrical dance. Most of the protection for your feet in a pair of lyrical shoes is concentrated in the balls of the feet. That’s where you are going to need it most while dancing. That’s why a thing has become such a popular option. A shallow profile piece of footwear that is nearly impossible to detect during the dance routine.
The colors run the spectrum from skin tones to camouflage, to hot pink with rhinestones. For practice or performance, you can likely find a pair that will suit you. Another style of shoes for lyrical dance look similar to a couple of sandals. They are much bigger than the thong and are harder to hide than the rope as well. They do however offer your feet a fair amount of support for such low profile footwear. Comparing them to a pair of sandals isn’t a fair comparison. They look like a pair of slippers the way that the material is cut and formed to your foot but the profile of the shoe is much lower than a couple of sandals. They are a very functional pair of shoes for lyrical dance.
