a. Kitri Rosas
She is very passionate and independent. Energetic and cheerful, she never stops moving and dancing! She has many friends because she gets along with everyone and loves to party. She is in love with Basil, a boy in her class.
She is a little rebellious, which is sometimes a problem. She can be too direct and cheeky so in ballet class she must control herself so as not to irritate the teacher. What’s more, if she gets angry, she can be explosive and quite stubborn.
On the other hand, when something gets into her head she doesn't stop until she succeeds! She loves challenges and never gives up. She is competitive but still celebrates others’ success.
When she has free time, she loves to spend it being outside in the sun and taking long rides on her scooter. In addition to dancing ballet, she is an excellent flamenco dancer. She is graceful, has rhythm and is very expressive. She was born to dance!
Passionate, independent, cheerful, friendly, adventurous, daring, competitive but celebrates the success of others.
Rebellious, explosive, daring, defies authority, very informal, stubborn.
b. Aurora Petipà
Sweet, romantic and naturally elegant, she attracts attention and sees life through rose-tinted glasses. She is very popular because she is very loving and has good manners.
She may be a bit conceited but she knows how to accept her mistakes and say "I'm sorry" from the heart. Sometimes she lets herself be influenced by the opinions of others and she finds it difficult to solve her own problems because she is indecisive. She seeks the support and advice of her friends and teachers.
She is very creative and has very good taste so she loves designing and creating her own clothes! And she has fun creating designs for her pet unicorns and friends too. Her parents don't like the idea because they are afraid of needles, but she secretly sews. She also loves being in her rose garden, surrounded by her favourite flowers.
She is usually late for class because she has fallen asleep or has got distracted! But she makes up for it with an excellent attitude as she’s a good listener who applies all the corrections. Although people believe that what she does is due to her great natural talent, she has really worked very hard to achieve that quality and control! And her artistic expression on stage is wonderful.
Sweet, elegant, creative, kind, she knows how to accept her mistakes.
Unpunctual, indecisive, easily influenced, has trouble solving her own problems, can be conceited.
c. Lilac Fay Lee
She is serious, responsible, caring and protective of everyone. Always busy, she is a perfectionist who wants to do the best in everything she does. Her leader spirit means she loves to organise and give orders and her creativity means she finds original solutions to problems.
Sometimes she can be too bossy or arrogant because she likes to have things her way. However, her friends love her very much because she is a very good friend who always has good intentions and gives excellent advice. She is very positive and finds the light even in the darkest situations.
She loves nature, animals and being outdoors. She is elegant and has an original way of dressing. She has an inner glow that gives her a certain mystery and she is a little reserved with her private life.
In class she is the leader of the group. Her teachers always put her in the front row and give her roles that require responsibility. She has beautiful lines and moves so elegantly that she seems to float!
Serious, responsible, protector, perfectionist, leader, organised, creative, good friend, positive, elegant.
Bossy, arrogant, uptight, too demanding, wants things her way.
d. Odette Swan
Romantic, dreamy and of a somewhat melancholic nature, she is very sentimental and easily moved. She is very compassionate so she cannot bear the suffering of others and always tries to keep her friends happy. This means she often does not say what she really wants.
She is so elegant that she unintentionally attracts attention wherever she goes, yet she is a little insecure and struggles to cope with her own problems.
She is fearful: she can't watch horror movies because she doesn't sleep for a month afterwards. Her twin sister Odile teases her endlessly for being easily scared yet too trusting of strangers, too dramatic and taking things too seriously.
When she is not at ballet class she is playing the violin or with her pet swan, Jack. She loves being near water and is an excellent swimmer.
She likes to convey deep emotions when she dances. For her, the artistic part of dance is more important than technique. She likes to dance to express herself, not to impress others.
Romantic, emotional, deep, artistic, expressive, elegant, serious, compassionate, empathetic, whimsical and dreamy.
Melancholic, hypersensitive, insecure, fearful, too trusting, avoids conflict, dramatic, escapes from problems.
e. Odile Swan
Tenacious and defiant, she is fierce as a rival. She doesn't stop until she gets what she wants and can be very aggressive. She is very independent but if she admires someone she can be influenced. This is dangerous if she keeps bad company.
She stays informed about current political, social and cultural affairs and is engaged in feminist causes. She can be very argumentative and loves to be right. Her strong personality can be intimidating!
She is very attractive. To differentiate herself from her twin, Odette, she likes to dress in dark colors and dye her hair black. She does not have much time for her ballet classmates because she thinks they are immature, although she plays the bass in Basil’s rock band. She prefers to spend time with people who have more alternative interests.
As a dancer she is very energetic and has great athletic ability. She is strong, powerful, and virtuous. Her teachers give her difficult variations and she nails them!
Strong, attractive, competitive, powerful, tenacious, energetic, intellectual, committed, athletic.
Aggressive, loves to be right, influential, fanatical, intimidating, she thinks she’s superior.
f. Esmeralda Dumas
She is the kindest and happiest girl in class! If she is not singing and dancing, she is whistling or humming (which can be a bit annoying for her classmates). She sings so well that Basil invited her to be a singer in his rock band.
Fearless and adventurous, she loves to travel and discover new places and cultures. She has friends everywhere in the world; every summer she goes to an intensive ballet course in a different country.
Her favorite color is green, and she loves to be stylish by wearing gold jewellery.
One of her interests is fortune-telling and her friends say her predictions are very accurate!
She is sincere and kind so never judge anyone by their appearance and always helps those who need it. However, people do sometimes take advantage of her good intentions. She is a little naive and overly optimistic so she doesn't like to see the negative side of people and situations. She can also be impulsive, which can be a problem when it comes to making sensible decisions.
She always knew that she wanted to be a dancer. She started ballet classes when she was only three years old and her exceptional talent was noticed. When she dances onstage she is hypnotic. Her movements are very precise and rhythmical so it is as if the music merges with her body!
Cheerful, kind, fearless, adventurous, never judges by appearances, helps those who need it, optimistic, stylish, has psychic powers, very talented.
Impulsive, loud, a little bit annoying, naive, too optimistic, lacks realism.
g. Coppélia Pouppée
A determined perfectionist who is always practising. She is very sweet and kind to everyone but because she has a shy and introverted personality no one knows what she really feels and thinks. She prefers solitude and entertaining herself, often reading books or playing alone with her beloved dolls and plushies.
She is very clever and imaginative but can be quite naive so she is easily fooled. It is difficult for her to relate to her friends and understand them because her way of thinking is unique. This runs in the family as her father is an eccentric inventor.
She dresses impeccably, is cheerful and always has a smile on her lips. She loves fruit and makes sure she eats a healthy diet of nourishing foods.
She follows her teachers' instructions so carefully – and perseveres with repeating movements so many times – that sometimes she seems like a robot. It is because she is a perfectionist, but she must remember not to be too hard on herself!
Sweet, happy, imaginative, educated, healthy, knows how to follow instructions, determined.
Very naive, shy, lonely, too much of a perfectionist.
