Character dance costumes can be a fantastic way to help performers inhabit their dance persona and to put on a great show. Whether delivering a performance that's got a popular and well known storyline or reinterpreting an old classic with a modern twist, all of the most famous characters have recognisable 'looks' which can be used on stage.
Themed dance costumes can also include seasonal performances. For Halloween shows, favourite costumes might include ghosts and vampires, witches and wizards, whilst summer shows might focus more on animals or well-known figures from history. Within this selection available here, there are costumes on offer covering a wide range of genres, from Robin Hood to Queen Victoria, Pinocchio to Scarlett O'Hara, Roman emperors, Grecian goddesses and everything else imaginable.
These are suitable for a number of dance styles, from modern and contemporary through to more classically inspired routines. Character ballet costumes generally tend to incorporate a skirt with movement, to enhance the grace of the dance. Other costumes are more figure flattering, useful for dance routines which are more rhythmic and gestural. Many of the costumes are suitable for younger dancers too, featuring tabard style pieces which are ideal for both boys and girls.
