Cecchetti children’s Award & let's make a competition information
The Cecchetti Children’s Awards are organised by the Cecchetti Group and Cecchetti Classical Ballet Faculty. The aim is to encourage dance quality and to demonstrate the high standard of children training in the Cecchetti Method and are an opportunity for young children to gain experience of performing and competing in a friendly atmosphere.
Let’s Make a Competition is a workshop for aspiring young dancers who have not yet taken part in a Cecchetti Classical Ballet competition - London or Regional Awards. Children will participate in a class and rehearsals during the day. They will be taught exercises that will be performed to parents and teachers at the end of the day in a format representing a competition. An invited guest will watch the performance and will give encouragement and advice at the end to all the children participating. No prior
knowledge is required as all work will be taught during the classes and rehearsals. The day will give the young dancers an insight into what it is like to participate and present themselves in a competition, but in the relaxed atmosphere of a workshop day.
The dancers must have passed Grade 1 or Standard 2 Cecchetti Ballet (not higher) and
be under 10 years of age on 1st September 2018.
The Children’s Award is a friendly competition for young dancers at the very first level of the Cecchetti Classical Ballet Awards. Dancers perform set class work and a dance. There will be the opportunity for competitors to familiarise themselves with the stage and run through the work and their dances before performing to an audience and the Adjudicator.
The dancers must have passed Grade 2 or Standard 3 Cecchetti Ballet (not higher)
with a result of 70% or above, and be under 11 years of age on 1st September 2018.
