The Cecchetti Method is an internationally recognized system of classical ballet training, endorsed by the Cecchetti Society of Canada, Cecchetti International Classical Ballet and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance, London England. Exam classes are for those serious students who wish to concentrate on increased levels of technique and artistry. Classes will cover the International Syllabi set out by the Cecchetti Society of Canada. Dancers are expected to achieve at a high level of proficiency. We are proud to offer classes in both the Cecchetti Grades and Standards systems, which allows for appropriate placement of most serious students based on their individual capabilities. Exams are available in both streams. Students must have passed Junior 3 and be registered in Junior 4 or higher to begin Cecchetti exam classes. All Cecchetti students from Gr. 1 to Advanced will participate in our large group dance at the year end recital, lovingly referred to as “the Cecchetti Dance.”

  • Grades/Standards 1 - 3 1.25 to 1.5 hours per week
