Cecchetti Exam Classes

Cecchetti Council LogoCecchetti Ballet (8-18)

The Cecchetti method of ballet training is a rigorous system with careful regard for the laws of anatomy, designed to endow the body with all the qualities essential to the dancer… balance, poise, strength, elevation, elasticity, etc. The student is taught to think of the movement of the foot, leg, arm, and head, not as something apart, but in relation to the whole body. The students enrolled in these classes are provided a system of accredited examinations. The examinations test the technical and artistic accomplishments of student candidates and offers students an opportunity to demonstrate their technical ability and understanding of the material. Each level provides attainable goals that build self-confidence in their developmental progress and successful achievements. Students must be enrolled and participating in a regular BDA ballet class to be eligible for this Cecchetti class.
