Southern California is the only dance studio in San Diego County and surrounding areas to offer annual Cecchetti International exams allowing the student to progress in ballet following an internationally accepted curriculum.
The Cecchetti method is a progressive system of training dancers from a pre-ballet beginning level to a professional level. It is designed with a careful regard to the laws of anatomy in order to prepare a dancer’s body to bear the physical demands of public performance, and embodies qualities that are essential to the dancer: balance, poise, strength, elevation, elasticity, musicality, and artistry. Throughout the years, this curriculum has produced a long list of very famous and accomplished ballet dancers.
Because the teacher certification focuses on instruction, by studying the basic principles which govern the art, students learn more than imitating an individual’s teaching style.
