Math Challenge May 1

In the May Pole dance dancers dance in a circle each holding a colored ribbon attached to the pole; the ribbons are wrapped around the pole as they dance. The dancers may then retrace their steps exactly in order to unravel the ribbons. If there are 5 pink ribbons, 5 blue ribbons, 5 yellow ribbons, and 5 green ribbons, how many ribbons are there all together?
