Hey, I don't understand about the different heel heights in character ballet. Theres a Cuban heel and the normal heel, I think. WHat's the difference? and what heel should a 16 yr old grade 5 dancer wear? :)

In RAD, the small children wear a low heel, and the older students wear the cuban heel, which is about an inch. All the students in the grade 6 class I attend have the cuban heel, if that helps.

Thank so much, I thought the Cuban was for older, but I wasnt sure. See, I usually use my sister's character shoes but now her feet have grown and I have to get them on my own. I wanted to be sure I got the right ones.

Ask your teacher what she wants you to wear.
