Cecchetti Choreographic Competition
Sunday 6th March 2016

Anya Linden Studio Theatre, Rambert School,
St Margaret’s Drive, Twickenham, TW1 1QN

The Cecchetti Children’s Choreographic Competition is a very popular, long established event and young dancers studying the Cecchetti method have the opportunity to develop their skills in the world of choreography.

The Choreographic Competition was for many years under the organisation of Barbara Geoghegan - the earliest programme is dated 1963. Cyril Beaumont was one of the first adjudicators and Ena Child was invited to adjudicate the musicality of the competitors.  Susan Handy, Juliet Locks and Wendy Mitchell in their turn all lead, developed and promoted the Competition and the current organisers are Claire Hern and Belinda Payne, who work with the support of the Cecchetti Group and their Chair, Elizabeth James.  Today adjudicators include dance artists or respected members of the teaching profession who bring their own choreographic experience and expertise to inform their adjudication.

The Choreographic Competition has three sections, and each section is sub-divided into solos, duets and groups.
