I really love character! Unfortunately, my studio right now doesn't offer character classes, but I love it when I'm at an intensive or trying another studio and I can go to a class.

I do RAD Graded (I'm in Grade 7 now) as well as the Vocationals (I'm in Intermediate now) and in the Graded Character is part of it, together with Free Movement. I really enjoy both Character and Free Movement. The only problem is that I'm a very Classical person, if you know what I mean. I'm very good using the style and stuff in Character, but Free Movement isn't so "free" when I do it :P. But Character is the best! The skirts and the Cuban Heeled shoes and the whole "thing"! Jazz and Modern classes are a different story... But that's not relevant to this post. Sorry is this was long.

Love.

I love character! It just clicks for me and I think it's so much fun. The skirts are also a blast to dance in.

Don't really like the character work in RAD. The ones in Swan lake, Sleeping beauty, etc are nice though :)

I don't mind character, in the lower grades its quite easy... We dont have a separate class for it at my studio, we cover ballet, character and free movement all in one class, sometimes the character gets missed out. Sometimes, the BALLET (including barre work!!!) gets missed out to fit in character!! I hate those days lol, I love classical and barre :P

I love character! Especially character variations =D

When I was in full-time training my school had character workshops like 2 to 3 times a year, where we focus on a couple of character variations for a whole week or two, and I really enjoy it! Apart from that, character classes are one of my favourite too. I had this teacher who came from a well-known character dance school in Moscow, I forgot what the school was called. She made class really fun, so I guess that's one of the reasons I enjoy it. We get to do a lot more of actual character dance compared to RAD character steps. In RAD I enjoy the character dances =P

I, personall, dislike it because its so... not ballet-ish and I am frusterated that we do this in one of my ballet classes, because I signed up to dance as a ballerina!

I miss it. I used to love in in the RAD ballet grades when I was young, and I use to have a character class. But now I barely ever do it. It's very sad.

I personally am a fan of character, but it really is just up to a persons opinion as my friend doesnt care for it at all.

I really don't like learning character, but I like performing it once I actually get it. It's just really hard for me to pick up... like the other day in class we were learning a step, and I just COULDN'T do it, and I had to copy other people.

I used to hat charactre earlier, but one day my charactre teacher called me her star student so after I had to love it. I also love the accents, beat, music, and steps. And of course, the swirly skirts!!

I adore character! How can you not?! "I hate character"?! *Weeps*
I do it in my RAD grade 5 and 6 classes. You can be so many people in character dances - a dignified lady of the palace court in a polonaise, proud and slightly disdainful in the mazurka, you get to toss your head!
How could you not find it so much fun?!
