"Cecchetti-trained dancers have achieved great success throughout the
world. They are generally well-regarded for their purity of line and
for their ability to adapt easily to other forms of dance.
"The timeless Cecchetti Principles of grace, balance and line form the
basis of a sound training syllabus that has been developed to meet the
needs of today's modern child - teaching co-ordination, poise,
confidence, rhythmical sense and musicality while ensuring that the
process is still fun!
"The fully qualified, carefully trained and registered teachers of
Cecchetti Ballet Australian Inc. are committed to providing a stable
and secure foundation for each student's training - whether for purely
recreational enjoyment or as the beginnings of a career in dance. The
Cecchetti teacher training courses prepare them to teach with a safe
and secure technical base, sound knowledge of anatomy and basic
physical faults, good teaching practices and the historical background
of the art of classical ballet.
"The syllabus has been carefully structured to ensure that the student
receives a well-balanced training, with each grade for younger dancers
designed to build progressively to the senior levels. Two separate
examining streams have been formulated to meet the different needs and
requirements of recreational and professional dancers."
