Classical Ballet: All ballet classes are based in the Cecchetti Method of classical ballet training. Emphasis is placed on correct technique, vocabulary & theories. Age & years of study does not ensure advancement to the next level. Students advance to the next level when they have achieved all requirements of current level.
Cecchetti Technical Exam classes: (Currently grades I through V) While not required, students who take CCA national examinations show marked improvement in dance abilities. Ballet exams are valuable for serious ballet students as they promote the development of strong technique, artistry, and quality of movement. The examining process gives each student a goal to work towards and allows them to achieve it. Achieving goals heightens self-esteem by allowing the dancer to graduate to the next level upon successful completion of the previous grade. The benefits of using a method which builds from one level to the next are important in developing a well-trained dancer.
