The Cecchetti Council of America is an organization dedicated to maintaining the standards and method of ballet training established by Cav. Enrico Cecchetti. The organization uses his teaching and writings in a sequence of grades, carefully measured as to degree of difficulty and physical development, and provides a system of accredited examinations to test the student’s proficiency within those grades. The Cecchetti method offers many rewards to the individual as each grade is successfully completed.
Students should realize that there is a specific goal to their Cecchetti class. Our goal is to take pride in the accomplishment of receiving a Cecchetti Certificate that was earned with hard work through self-discipline, commitment and dedication. It is guaranteed that each student will finish each examination with a feeling of personal fulfillment and satisfaction that will be carried through a lifetime.
Parents, students and instructors should realize that working toward the Cecchetti examinations will require determination and tenacity for all involved. Students will feel their bodies strengthen as well as their minds and have a great time doing so. There will be trying days, but the final result will leave each student with confidence, self-esteem and a rewarding experience that will be long lasting.
