Attention Cecchetti IV Students

As part of your Cecchetti IV syllabus, you will be required to perform a one minute long choreographed routine during your examination. Separate preparation time and assistance with your routines are a must and private lessons are highly encouraged in order to be certain all appropriate elements are included in the routine. We only offer a ½ hour private class to students preparing for this level. This is ONLY available to Grade IV students who are working on their solo dance (NOT for syllabus work). Private lesson times are available and can be scheduled through the office.

Cecchetti Exam Participants

Exam participants will be chosen prior to January 31st. Participants will be evaluated and reviewed prior this date. Only examinees that are completed ready, physically and mentally, will be asked to participate in the February 23rd, 24th and 25th, 2018 exam session and need to pay exam fees. If your student is ready to participate in exams, we ask to please submit a written note for any conflicts with your schedule during exam weekend by Feb. 1st. Students will be notified by our office or Miss Kristen if their names were submitted for exams.

All exam students (excluding Primary 3) will also be required to attend a Mandatory Theory Workshop held on Saturday, January 21st at AADbK. Students not participating in February exams are encouraged to attend as well! Tuition for Theory Study session will be due Saturday, January 13th, 2018. A late fee of an additional $15.00 will apply after the due date.
