Cecchetti Classical ballet has a rich heritage and history.

Enrico Cecchetti (1850 - 1928) was one of the most important influences on the foundations of modern Classical Ballet training. He evolved a method of training in the 19th Century that is as relevant today as it was when first created.  His influence on British Ballet has been far reaching and resulted in the creation of The Cecchetti Society and the Cecchetti Ballet Faculty of the ISTD.  The Cecchetti principles of training continue to produce outstanding artistic and technically accomplished dancers, able to work with today‚Äôs directors across a spectrum of ballet and contemporary companies.
