NATIONAL CHARACTER

Character dance is a specific subdivision of classical dance. It is the stylized representation of a traditional folk or national dance, mostly from European countries, and uses movements and music which have been adapted for the theatre. 

Popular character dance adaptations for ballet also include the national dances of Hungary, Russia, Poland, Italy and Spain:  mazurka, flamenco, etc.
