Cecchetti

The Cecchetti Method is a disciplined system of ballet instruction designed with careful regard for the laws of anatomy. This allows for:

  • Complete embodiment of the essential qualities of a great dancer
  • An understanding and emphasis of body line
  • Superior balance and poise
  • Strength and elasticity of the muscles
  • Indispensable ability to adapt quickly and fluidly to all styles of choreography
  • The Cecchetti trained student is better able to absorb the basic principles which govern the art rather than the mere imitation of an individual’s teaching style.

The Cecchetti Method offers:

  • Set Syllabi for pre-school through professional levels
  • Student examinations
  • Certification examinations
  • Teacher training courses

Based on international standards, examinations are designed to give students and instructors of the Cecchetti Method a greater sense of purpose while insuring that each level has been successfully accomplished before progressing to the next.
