Cecchetti Ballet Program

Affinity Dance - Cecchetti Ballet Program, Surrey, Langley, BC


The Cecchetti Society is an international organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Cecchetti Method of Classical ballet and is committed to the highest standards of training for dancers and teachers.

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). Born into a family of professional dancers, Maestro Cecchetti had a distinguished career as a principal dancer on the international scene before becoming a teacher of renown. He taught in Russia, Poland, Italy and England and became the private instructor of Anna Pavlova and many other celebrated dancers. Cyril Beaumont published the Cecchetti theories, beginning in 1922. Beaumont was assisted in the transcription of the manuals by Cecchetti protégés. In 1924 the Cecchetti Society was incorporated as a branch of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing, with headquarters in London, England.

The Canadian Branch of the Cecchetti Society was founded in 1949 by Betty Oliphant, first ballet mistress of the National Ballet of Canada and co-founder with Celia Franca of the National Ballet of Canada. In 1996 the Cecchetti Society of Canada was federally incorporated as a non-profit organization with charitable status. The Cecchetti Society of Canada is a corporate member of Cecchetti International-Classical Ballet.

The Cecchetti method has been a major part of the professional training programs at Canadian dance institutions such as the National Ballet of Canada and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.

Students who are very interested in ballet and have the physical facility to perform the examination material are eligible to take the professional Cecchetti Ballet Examinations.
