CLASSICAL BALLET – CECCHETTI METHOD
Classical ballet is the foundation for all forms of dance and is based on techniques developed over centuries. It is a disciplined art form that places great emphasis on the execution of movement.
Mathis Dance Studios provides ballet classes in the Cecchetti system, an internationally recognised syllabus, for every age group up until the senior levels (majors). The Cecchetti method is a form of classical ballet known for its timeless principles of grace, balance, beautiful lines, artistry and the sense of self within dance.
Our qualified Cecchetti teachers are committed to providing a stable and secure foundation for each student’s learning. Whether for recreational enjoyment or the beginnings of a career in dance, the syllabus is carefully structured to ensure each student’s training is progressed through the grades and meets the balance of age and ability.
We begin the Cecchetti syllabus from Pre-Primary (Foundation at school) then students advance through Primary and onto Grades 1 – 6.
From here, students can either take the major dance syllabus stream of Intermediate, Advanced 1, Advanced 2 and Diploma.
The Cecchetti Ballet syllabus is designed to teach ballet movements, terms and concepts, in a way that is appropriate for the children’s level of cognitive and physical development. Ballet helps children build strength, coordination and musicality, while engaging their imagination.
It teaches poise, correct posture, rhythmical sense and musicality, while ensuring the lessons remain fun!
Offered from school age.
