Adult Character Dance


Character Dance is a sub-branch within the classical umbrella of dance. Often introduced to more intermediate and advanced level ballet students with a solid understanding of classical ballet foundations.  International character dance draws on cultural folk dances from Europe including Ukraine, Moldova, Poland, Hungary etc and reimagines them in a classical ballet setting (see this video as an example!).

Done in a small heeled shoe (Character Shoe) for both men and women, and with a skirt, character dance gives classical ballet students the opportunity expand their classical practice, and performance.

We recommend use of black canvas character shoes, lower heels leather or canvas shoes. Clothes: Black leotard, tights and skirt preferably (optional)
