The Diamond Valley Dance Academy is registered with Cecchetti Ballet Australia and accordingly all classical ballet classes are based on the Cecchetti syllabus from Pre-Primary to Advanced levels.
Maestro Enrico Cecchetti was a wonderful teacher, dancer and choreographer who taught supreme dancers, Anna Pavlova and Vaslav Nijinsky in Europe and Russia. His teaching methods were codified in the 1920's, and although they have been modernised over the years, the beautiful arm and head qualities, professional structure and complex exercises remain an integral part of the Cecchetti syllabus today.
Cecchetti Ballet Australia is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) providing national qualifications for its registered teachers, including Certificate IV in Teaching of Cecchetti Method of Classical Ballet. Teacher training is available on completion of the appropriate level of the Cecchetti Syllabus.
