Cecchetti Scholars Auditions for Entry 2019/20 

Auditions will be held on Saturday, 11th May 2019

The Cecchetti Classical Ballet scholarship scheme offers weekly classes for talented young dancers. As well as ballet, the programme includes body conditioning, pointe work, repertoire and performance work. It is designed to complement the training the student receives from their own teacher, with a view to strengthening technique and artistry and helping the student to reach their full potential. Scholarships are generously funded by The Cecchetti Society Trust.

Auditions for entry in 2019/20 will be held on Saturday 11th May 2019 at Arts Educational School, Chiswick. In order to apply for a scholarship, a student must have passed Grade 4 or Standard 5 in any method, but be receiving their current training with a Cecchetti teacher. Please encourage any students, male and female, that you feel would benefit from the scheme to audition.

Application forms, rules and regulations are available from Sharon Orme, Cecchetti Faculty Co-ordinator, email cecchetti@istd.org or telephone 07551 159471.
