just so no one gets confused, character ballet is different from character dancing, and people use character shoes for many different things. at my studio we use them for jazz sometimes. They look good with certain costumes. U can also put taps on them, but then, as kirpy sad, they arent character shoes, they're tap shoes. kirpy is right about character dancing though, i just wanted to make it clear that there is also character ballet too.

character dance is always part of a decent ballet education i think as well as modern dance should be.

In our Ukrainian dance classes, we wear character shoes rather than boots (which we save for performances). Every dancer is required to have a red and a black pair. Sometimes, they are worn on stage as well.

Character was the bane of my life! I HATED it *l* until about grade seven, then I thought it was more fun. I especially loathed dotting steps. mleh.

We had really cool skirts at our school though, that we wore for exams. They had three red ribbons on them, and a little red lining underneath which was loose, so when you turned or lifted teh skirt, you got this flash of red like a real gypsy skirt :)

I really really liked the Grade 8 character, though I forget teh name of the one I did. Mazurka du salon?

I've taken character ballet for quite some time. It's very interesting, and I enjoyed it a lot. The music is very exciting and brilliant. It helps to have a really strong back for most of the works!
hi!

i took like a semi-intensive and there was character classes so i got shoes and my mom said she had an skirt but it didnt look like that and was way different. I think that is because she is a spanish dancer so she may have used it when she was younger or something

i think charecter would be fun and according to others at my studio that went away for summer and had carecter thy had alot of fun, but as of right now i have nothing but bad experiences (touchy, i mean every where they could get their hands) every body hated it and treid to stay as far as the could away from this guy, also he wore spandax and didnt have the greatest body in the world and smelled bad. my studio is trying to find a good teacher (went through 4 already, and they ask if we like them and watch a class with them too, but so far they havent found anybody yet)
