Dance Center Evanston is the only studio in Evanston to prepare students for exams with the Cecchetti Council of America. For more information about the Cecchetti Method, visit the website of the Cecchetti Midwest Committee at cecchettimidwest.org.
For Fall 2020, all Cecchetti classes will be held in a hybrid model with students alternating each week between attending live in-person or online via Zoom. There is also an online only option for each class. Please see Calendar & Info page for more information.
Participation in Cecchetti classes is by invitation. All Cecchetti students are required to take non-syllabus classes as well. In Ballet 2A-Ballet 5, Cecchetti qualifies as one of the required Ballet classes. Cecchetti students also attend two workshops each year.
Cecchetti (pronounced Cha KEH tee) is a thorough and careful method of teaching classical ballet. Developed by Maestro Enrico Cecchetti in the late 1800s and codified in 1922, the method continues to flourish. The Cecchetti method focuses on strong technique, correct body alignment, and graceful quality.
