Ballet is characterized by light, graceful, fluid movements. We follow the Cecchetti syllabus in ballet to ensure that our students progress safely through the different levels of ballet dancing. Cecchetti training is a rigorous method which pays careful attention to the laws of anatomy. It develops all of the qualities essential to the dancer: balance, poise, strength, elevation, elasticity, “ballon”, etc. It is classic in its purity and clear-cut style.
