All Ages

The timeless Cecchetti Principles of grace, balance and line form the basis of a sound training syllabus that has been developed to meet the needs of today's modern child - teaching co-ordination, poise, confidence, rhythmical sense and musicality while ensuring that the process is still fun!

The fully qualified, carefully trained and registered teachers of Cecchetti Ballet Australia and New Zealand, are committed to providing a stable and secure foundation for each student's training - whether for purely recreational enjoyment or as the beginnings of a career in dance. The Cecchetti teacher training courses prepare them to teach with a safe and secure technical base, sound knowledge of anatomy and basic physical faults, good teaching practices and the historical background of the art of classical ballet. The syllabus has been carefully structured to ensure that the student receives a well-balanced training, with each grade for younger dancers designed to build progressively to the senior levels. Cecchetti-trained dancers have achieved great success throughout the world. They are generally well-regarded for their purity of line and for their ability to adapt easily to other forms of dance.

Mission and Vision
Christchurch Academy of Ballet's mission and vision is to teach, train, and develop young dancers to the highest technical and artistic standards. This will be accomplished with individual and personalized attention, in order to attain the student's fullest potential.

A History of the Arts

At Christchurch Academy of Ballet we recognize that, as human beings, we are more than products of evolution, but created in the image of a Creator God.In fact, the bible offers a robust affirmation of the arts. The human impulse to create reflects our being created in the image of a Creator God. Many great artists have been inspired by stories in the bible. We should have a high place for creating and enjoying art because God Himself is an Artist. The truth is that human beings are not merely functional. We are embodied creatures with not only a mind, but a body, an imagination, and a sense of beauty. We have the ability to express emotion and to reflect on truth. In short, by God’s design, we are created to contemplate the mysteries of our experiences and of this world through the arts. No evolutionary theory can account for this uniquely human capacity.
