okay i get the feeling that not many people know about character dancing so here is some info. character dancing is part of RAD (royal acadamey of dancing) and in the grades 1 and upwards there is character dancing. it changes from grade to grade. in one grade it might be hungarian in another polish or russian. the picture above is a character skirt. on your feet you wear like tap shoes but withou the taps and are normally made out of canvas. i hope that people read this and get a clearer view of what it is.

Thanks so much for that! My ballet teacher told me we were starting Character next term and I think I was the only one with a blank/dumb expression on my face. Lol. Thank you and your skirt looks gorgeous.

Character dance is soooo much fun, it's really just a study of folk dances from Europe that I can tell, but things like the Mazerka and Tarantulas (I totally misspelled that) are very fun to learn, we learn them late in the year in our Intermediate level classes and even perform them sometimes at informal parent only recitals! I hope we eventually have a pure Character Dancing class, but we don't have an expert teacher for it yet, we only just got a permanently yearly Modern class (from a student of Martha Graham) recently, I hope Character is next!

actally, character shoes are not for character ballet. they are actually the mary jane style (2-3in heel) you will see mostly in musical theater

thnks for tht i really was kinda lost about character. cleared things up alot. im taking a class in ballet past and present forms from around the world and knowing about character will probably help alot.
