since i can't select 2 options on the poll, i'll just reply:

i wear jazz oxfords near competition/concert/recital time, though i tend to go barefoot a lot of the time - i feel a lot more connected to the floor. though i also went through a phase about 5 years ago when i would only wear jazz sneakers :S

I love wearing jazz oxfords in class. They make turns and stuff so much easier. Plus mine are leather with some sort of cloth in the middle which makes it fit so nice and comfy. However, I do like dancing barefoot when I'm practicing. I feel really connected to the floor and my feet can do so much more. But then I can't turn as well.

I love barefeet. It strengthens my feet for ballet and I just LOVE feeling the floor. I also hate in the jazz boots, how they wrinkle when you point. I'm mainly a ballet and lyrical dancer, so lines are so important to me, and the arch just feels ruined by the wrinkled leather. So I'm all for undeez, foot thongs, and dance paws.

jazz oxfords when I'm at the studio. :)
barefoot while practicing back home. :)
i think barefoot is way nice because you feel so connected to the floor, but sadly you can't turn properly.

For jazz class I mainly wear Capezio Split-Sole Slip-on jazz shoes, but sometimes I wear dance paws. I also wear dance sneakers, but mainly when i practice at home and for hip-hop.

I wear split sole jazz boots (Bloch) most of the time, which I love. But now for competition, I'm wearing tan Capezio Pedinis (these:www.discountdance.com . . .), which I'm still getting used to, but I do like them.

For modern class I go barefoot, and sometimes for jazz too. Mostly for class I wear Capezio oxfords. But, for dance team, we're outdoors so sneakers make the most sense. I just got new ones, and they're amazing!

Depends.
If I go to a workshop I usually end up wearing my sneakers the entire day.

I have a pair of oxfords. However, I don't really use them all that much. I prefer dancing barefoot or sometimes even with socks on. It really depends what you prefer. If you are not sure, experiment with what you like best. Just make sure that you can dance in dance shoes since recital dances are typically danced in shoes =)

I prefer to dance in foot undeez, I find them really comfortable and easy to turn in. We do wear them for most of our dances this year as well.

I don't know exactly what kind of jazz shoes I wear is called. But I love jazz anyway! LOL :)

I'm not very used to dancing barefoot. I should try it some time later. Only 1 hour and 15 minutes till my jazz class. :)

I started jazz before ballet and I can say it helps me with ballet. :)

Uhm...can anyone show me what these jazz shoes look like? Or what they're specifically for? :) Thanks. :)

My jazz teacher makes us go barefoot or with toe undeez or whatever they're called most of the time.
Dunno why.
I personally think it's easier than with shoes.
