Contemporary classes are adding a new dimension to the dancing of our Senior Students this year. Contemporary works well in conjunction with other genres and adds to a dancers all round skill. We are lucky to have Emma Daniel to teach this fresh from her full time course.


Students are enjoying the beautiful new mirrors at ballet this week. The mirrors will help students check posture and technique for themselves.

William Carse Awards

There are a number of events conducted by Cecchetti Victoria which give students experience outside their own studio with other ballet students from across Victoria and this helps broaden the ballet experience of pupils. Today we had the William Carse awards at Jason Coleman’s expansive Ministry of Dance in Melbourne. Eliza Flanagan, Eliana Dipietro, Charlotte Collins, Teagan Menhennet and Nicola Coats made the trip and had an enjoyable day. Nicola is pictured with Reiko Hombo a ballerina from the Australian Ballet who shared judging duties with Athol Willoughby.

Cecchetti Society refresher


Tunya and I traveled to the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary (VCASS) in Melbourne today for the annual Cecchetti Society refresher. We saw classes taught by Colin Peasley and Megan Connelly from the Australian Ballet. We learned some adaptations to the syllabus. We also listened to a physiotherapist who spoke about readiness for pointe. All in all a very informative day.



Classes start from Monday 1st of February

We have 3 eager students at Ormond College Melbourne University attending the Cecchetti Society Summer School.

Holly Cranefield, Emily Bolton and Nicola Coats have all decided to attend this week long camp where they will have several classes each day from some highly reknowned dance teachers from throughout the country. The will no doubt enjoy mixing with others from around the country (and overseas) who share their love of dance.

Good luck girls!
