Programs & Age Divisions
We believe every student deserves the absolute best dance education. Our program is rooted in classical ballet, specifically through the system developed by Enrico Cecchetti. As a Cecchetti USA Certificated studio, our students move through levels with ballet exams each year. Exams are designed to give students a greater sense of purpose while ensuring that each level has been successfully accomplished before progressing to the next. Our program includes five divisions, each adding a NEW genre of dance training that builds upon the previous division.
Students increase their strength and control with speed and mental acuity. Introduction of more complex combinations, turns, batterie and balances. Focus is on maintaining alignment while dancing as well as building artistry and dynamics. Some students will begin pointe work in this division. Modern training begins at this level.
Students acquire heighten levels of strength, control and agility. Artistry is continued to be developed, while adding advanced principals and nuances to movement. Students obtain a comprehensible knowledge of the Cecchetti Method, theory and terminology. Dancers at this level are eligible to enter into the Cecchetti Major Exams 8-10 at teachers reccommendation.
