Cecchetti Classical Ballet
The Cecchetti method of Classical Ballet offers a complete and well structured system of training which caters for the small child through to the professional dancer and the future teacher.
Enjoyment is of prime importance for a young child beginning to dance and the Class Examinations and Performance Awards provide ideal opportunities for those attending classes for recreational purposes on a once a week basis. For children wishing to study in greater depth, there are the more technically demanding Grade Examinations. In all the children's work a steady build up and safe practice are of great importance.
Election for the Cecchetti Classical Ballet committee opens this year. If you would like to be nominated or know of someone who should be nominated, please contact the ISTD Executive Assistant, Dawn James on email@example.com for further information.
