BALLET

The foundation of all dance forms, ballet helps to build a strong base, clean technique and proper alignment, and is accompanied by classical music. Russian technique, also known as Vaganova, is a very expressive style of ballet. Focusing on upper body work and emphasizing musicality, dancers are encouraged to emote and perform through syllabus work.

Students will learn and perform a dance in the year end recital. Ages 3 & up.

 

 

 

VAGANOVA (RUSSIAN)
CECCHETTI (ITALIAN)

The Cecchetti method of ballet is a style of classical, theatrical dance based on the teachings of the great Italian ballet master Enrico Cecchetti (1850-1928). Graded examinations are scheduled, and qualified examiners are provided for students across Canada. The purpose of these examinations is to give teachers and students specific goals to work toward and to maintain standards of development consistent with international standards. The Cecchetti ballet class tuition is higher to cover the costs of the live pianist each week in class, along with extra classes and rehearsals which are mandatory for students.

Exams are optional. No choreography will be set in this class. Ages 7 & up.
