Certification in Ballet

There are only a handful of international organizations that certify ballet instructors. At Dance Works! we train you for certification as a ballet instructor through the Cecchetti Council of America (CCA).  If you currently teach ballet and are looking to elevate the quality of your teaching through internationally recognized teaching methods, then this program is for you.  This is at a minimum a two-year program that required teacher trainee dedication and commitment.  Using the CCA syllabus, you will be expected to understand the ballet exercises, how and why each exercise is done as well as how each is used to lead the student toward successful execution of ballet combinations and steps. Teaching methods and strategies for students at all levels will be discussed. Once you have a solid knowledge of the Cecchetti Council of America, you will take an exam by a national examiner to confirm your knowledge.
