Character dance is part of the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus. It is a theatrical presentation of national dances from various countries, including Hungary, Poland and Russia. The character skirt resembles traditional national skirts of those countries. The length should sit at the middle of the calf for optimal ballet performance.
The colour of the ribbons is usually chosen by the teacher, but the range of colours is determined by the examination board. The Ballet Boutique stocks official Royal Academy of Dance character skirts featuring the RAD logo. We stock all four official colours - Pinks, Blues, Pastels and Brights.
