The RWB School is pleased to be offering ballet exams in the Cecchetti Syllabus for select levels. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of 2 ballet classes per week of the same level to be considered for these exams. These decisions are made by the student’s ballet teacher and will be based on their progress, attendance and focus. Invitations will be sent out in the coming weeks. The exams will be in April and in preparation, a maximum of four Sunday exam rehearsals will be scheduled during the months prior. These Sunday exam rehearsals are mandatory and will take precedence over Festival rehearsals.
Upon completion of an examination, the student will receive a certificate and detailed report from the Cecchetti Society of Canada. Please be aware that ballet examinations are NOT mandatory to advance to the next RWB and Cecchetti level (with the exception of Intermediate). For more information please speak to your child’s ballet teacher.
Do you have a three-year-old who will not stop dancing around the house? Then why not register for a Creative Movement class!
The second session starts on January 12/13 and runs for 14 weeks. Students will gain an understanding of locomotion skills and musicality in a creative atmosphere which will provide an excellent foundation for subsequent dance classes. Parents will be invited to view their child’s class during the March Observation Week. The School Office will continue to accept registrations during the first week back, however space is limited. Class times are as follows:
Saturday 9:30-10:15am Miss Katie
Saturday 9:00-9:45am Miss Claire
Sunday 12:00-12:45pm Miss Katrin
