The YAA offers beginner, intermediate and advanced Cecchetti ballet classes. Ballet is the foundation of all dance. Correct body alignment, flexibility, and physical coordination will be stressed, producing strong, clean dancers enhanced by artistic expressiveness. It is recommended that ALL dancers study ballet and build a foundation in this first foremost core dance style before moving on to study stylized disciplines. For students ages 5+.
The focus of a Cecchetti Ballet class is learning the Cecchetti Syllabus as taught throughout the world. The syllabus is a series of exercises, performed to music, which must be memorized in order and demonstrated with correct technical skills, musicality and style. Students will also develop a solid understanding of theory and vocabulary suited to their level. Your child will gain physical strength, enhance their mental strength through memorization of terminology, steps and combinations, will gain self-confidence and positive attitudes.
As dancers/instructors who have been through this process and continue to learn, we are committed to this highly regarded syllabus. It is an excellent basis for students to receive a solid understanding of the dance discipline, while developing strong technique.
Ballet technique, performance ballet, pre-pointe and pointe classes are available at the Young at Arts.
