What is character dancing?

Character dance is part of the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus and is the theatrical presentation of national dance from Hungary, Russia and Poland. As a syllabus dance there is a strict uniform code for the dancer, which includes a Character skirt and Character shoes.

What is a Character skirt?

What is a character skirt?The character skirt resembles the traditional national skirts, its length goes just below the knee and its drape is flowing. It is black in colour but with ribbons just above the hem, again harking back to the traditional styles worn by the national dancers of Hungary, Russia and Poland.

The colour of the ribbons is usually chosen by the dance teacher, but the range of colours is determined by the examination board. For the range of available colours visit our website.

What are Character shoes?

What are Character shoes?Character shoes can be leather, or more usually canvas, with either a low, Cuban or high heel up to 3 inches. The character shoe also typically has an elasticated strap over the instep to secure the foot during dancing. The soles can be hard leather or, as is the case with RAD syllabus, soft suede in either grey or black.
