Ballroom & Latin dancing has traditionally been seen as an upper-middle class activity. The price of related products reflects this. Thanks to dance programmes like Strictly Come Dancing, more people are joining the dance community!

Let’s make Ballroom & Latin dancing accessible to all!

“I started university in 2014 and joined the Salsa Society. I wanted a pair of dance shoes to get started, but realised just how expensive they were! So, in 2015, I created Shut Up & Dance to provide affordable dance shoes for hobbyists like myself. We have come far in making dancing accessible, but we have much further to go!”
