Centre Organiser: Sarah Wells
The Cecchetti Centre was founded in 1983, as a tribute to Nora Roche, who taught at The Royal Ballet School for nearly a quarter of a century. A pupil of Margaret Craske, her own teaching was deeply rooted in the Cecchetti method and this played a formative role in the training of a whole generation of outstanding British dancers amongst themour Patrons Antoinette Sibley, Lesley Collier and Darcey Bussell. Together with other Cecchetti students and teachers from all over the world, their tribute to Nora Roche was to help raise the funds to establish a Cecchetti Centre in London.
The Centre has developed and has continued to flourish to the present day. Under the present Organiser, Sarah Wells, the Centre runs course at venues in central London and in regions.
