Character for Ballet

All of the great full length ballets include Character dance, which is a stylized version of classical dance with roots in traditional folk dance and national dances.   Influenced mostly by European countries where ballet originated, Character class allows students to learn the typical styles of Character dance seen in ballets like Coppélia, Swan Lake, Raymonda, and Nutcracker to name a few.
