Cecchetti Classical Ballet
The History of Cecchetti Classical Ballet
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 working with professional dancers including Pavlova and Nijinsky, that is as relevant today as it was when first created. His influence on British Ballet has been far reaching. The Cecchetti principles of training continue to produce outstanding artistic and technically accomplished dancers, able to work with today’s directors across a spectrum of ballet and contemporary companies.
Cecchetti Classical Ballet Exams and Qualifications
Cecchetti Classical Ballet offers examinations and qualifications for children, students and teachers that are nationally and internationally recognised for their excellence. Enjoyment is of prime importance for a young child beginning to dance and the Class Examinations are ideal 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. Vocational examinations for older students and those at vocational schools are soundly based on Cecchetti principles and promote strength and co-ordination, together with a quality of movement which is second to none. The Enrico Cecchetti Diploma is the culmination of a study of the method and is for the professional dancer.
