Cecchetti Syllabus: Recommended for all ballet students, this ballet training is based on the method developed by Maestro Enrico Cecchetti, renowned dancer and foremost teacher of the artists of the Imperial Russian Ballet and Serge Diaghilev's Ballet Russes.
Graded levels with appropriate examinations offered by the Cecchetti Council of America provide stimulus to the progress of the serious student. Cecchetti syllabus classes are offered in concert with ballet classes.
Pointe: Pointe work is introduced after the student has strong basic technique and after the legs are sufficiently developed. In all the advanced classes, students with the requisite physical and technical ability are encouraged to wear pointe shoes in order to make dancing en pointe feel and look natural and effortless.
