This is a vigorous sumptuous ballet class drawing largely on Cecchetti ballet technique - training exercises for strength and coordination that have an innately lavish dance quality that is very satisfying for dancers



Class music comes from a range of blues,soul, rock and pop, electro and classical to emphasise the quality aimed for in the exercise.



Following an hour of barre and centre exercises attendees are welcome to stay to learn excerpts from ballets including Romeo&Juliet and company rep.


General level - some ballet experience recommended.












"The Cecchetti work has given me strength, discipline and co-ordination. It wasn't until I got into the Royal Ballet Company that I realized how lucky I was to have had that training."

 - Darcy Bussell













From Fokine's 'Firebird', which was choreographed for the Diaghilev Ballets Russes, a company taught by Maestro Enrico Cecchetti
