We are pleased to be offering Cecchetti ballet examinations in the school again this year. Last year was our first session of Primary entries and it was a positive and rewarding experience for those involved.
All students in Primary ballet and those students in Power Movers who are turning 7 by December 31st may be invited to participate in this unique experience. Students chosen to participate will have shown an ability to meet the national standard of technical requirements set forth by the Cecchetti Society of Canada. They will also have the disposition necessary to complete a structured exam class in front of an examiner who will grade the students and issue a certificate and report. The report will outline the positive aspects of their dancing along with areas which need improvement. Invited students will be required to register for an extra ballet class every week starting in January until the exam in April. Invited students will be receiving an invitation in the mail in the coming weeks. Examinations are not necessary to move on to the next level at the RWBS, but are a great way to set goals.
