Training in the Cecchetti Method not only gave me solid technique, it opened up a whole new world for me in teaching, dancing, and the artistry of Ballet. Kim Grover-Haskin, Ph.D.
Southwest CCA members want to help you improve your ballet technique and see you become a recognized professional. We actively prepare young dancers through the Cecchetti syllabus method. At each level of the syllabus, dancers have the opportunity to test their knowledge of core theory and show technical accomplishment. As an active community of educators, the Southwest CCA holds these exams consistently throughout the year. Students and teachers can plan their professional growth with their coaches.

Enrico Cecchetti demonstrated genius talent early in his life. At the tender age of five, he appeared in Il Giocatore, and two years later had his American debut, alongside his parents, at the Philadelphia Academy of Music as part of a special Italian troupe assembled for the theater’s grand opening.
