The Mabel Ryan Awards

The Cecchetti Children’s Award and Mabel Ryan Awards are organised by the Cecchetti Group and Cecchetti Classical Ballet Faculty and are part of the annual Cecchetti Classical Ballet Awards.  The aim is to encourage dance quality and to demonstrate the high standard of children training in the Cecchetti Method.  Due to the popularity of these Awards, in 2015 the Children's Awards and the Mabel Ryan Awards will be two separate events.
