At Dancer’s Edge we believe that children are our most valuable resources. We take great pride in the accomplishments of our students as dancers and as confident individuals whose lives will be more fulfilled from the memories of dance. We understand that it is the parents that afford this wonderful opportunity for your children and we will do our best to make you proud! OUR GOAL is to provide the most positive environment possible for the growth and development of each individual student.
When looking for a dance school for your child or yourself, you want a school that has a creative and caring environment where you or your child can be motivated, learn self-discipline, be physically challenged and grow in the performing arts. You want the school to be professionally accredited through nationally recognized dance associations such as the Cecchetti Council of America. You want the school you choose to have credentialed dance instructors with degrees in dance and knowledge based on years of experience working their craft, whether on stage or in the classroom. We believe at Dancer’s Edge you will find all of these things and much more.
What sets Dancer’s Edge apart is our Cecchetti based ballet training, a strong base for training any dancer.
Enrico Cecchetti was the ballet master for the famous ballet company, Ballets Russes in the early 1900s. Cecchetti’s legacy has lived on through the Cecchetti Council of America. The Cecchetti Council was founded after his dance material was handed to the Dance Masters of Michigan in 1939. The organization uses Cecchetti’s teachings and writings in a sequence of grades, carefully measured as to degree of difficulty and physical development, and provides a system of accredited examinations to test the students proficiency within those grades. The Cecchetti Method offers our teachers a completely balanced and analyzed system of theory and execution for the planned development of the student from the first lesson to solo status.
It is our belief that the structure, technique and precise nature of the Cecchetti curriculum will take any young dancer in the direction that he/she wants to go. To this end, our current curriculum reflects the grade levels and class structure outlined by Cecchetti himself.
