Explore the world of Dance.
 
1.5 hour class

Designed to explore different cultures, Character dance is a specific subdivision of classical dance. It is the stylized representation of a traditional folk or nation dance, mostly from European countries, and uses movements and music that have been adapted for the theatre. Character dance is integral to most classical ballet repertoire and can be seen in all of the great full-length ballets. Danced usually in heeled shoes, these classes will start at the barre similar to a ballet class and finish in the centre where traditional dancers will be learnt. We recommend one-year prior experience or taking our beginners ballet programme first.
