Name: Cecchetti Ballet & Character Dance Workshop
Date: June 17, 2019 - June 21, 2019
Footlight Dance Centre is a Cecchetti Ballet school, based in the teachings of Enrico Cecchetti (1850-1928). Our teaching is based on a graded system of advancement, levels 1-7. I hold professional Grade 6, a Licentiate member of the method. The Cecchetti Method offers a teacher a completely balanced and analyzed system of theory and execution for the planned development of a student. Students are advanced into class levels on the basis of technical mastery of specific steps, understanding of alignment/center, use of the French terminology, musicality and interpretation of the music. Taking Summer Classes in the Cecchetti Method gives a student the ability to understand in more depth their study of ballet. THIS IS A PERFECT WAY TO PROGRESS in a short period of time! If you have never taken Cecchetti grades, you must start with Level 1-2. Each level also includes a character class, like folk dancing, this traditional class prepares dancers for the classical ballets.
