We welcome all teachers to our seminar to explore, learn, and study the Cecchetti Method. Teachers can learn and share knowledge in a positive and friendly atmosphere provided by the CCA and Hope College. The seminar is devoted to the art of teaching, emphasizing developing technique and the quality of movement, body placement, and style.
The teachers’ faculty includes guest teachers from around the world, and CCA faculty from around the country, who believe the Cecchetti Syllabi is a strong and viable teaching methodology. The complete Cecchetti syllabi is offered to demonstrate the progression of the method, along with classes that specialize in teaching techniques, classes for the very young, free style, and classical variations.
Testimonial from a 2019 teacher attendee.
“My favorite part of the course was the comprehensive knowledge expertise and training excellence we received from the selectd faculty members coupled with their wilingness to go beyond words in the book and teach is what’s not written from their own experiences”.
Hope College is recognized as one of the outstanding liberal arts colleges in the nation with a thriving and expanding dance department. The attractive, first-rate campus is located two blocks from picturesque downtown Holland. (view map.)
