The Cecchetti Centre, London, UK
The Cecchetti Centre in London was founded in 1983 by Richard Glasstone, as a tribute to Nora Roche who taught the Cecchetti method at the Royal Ballet School for over a quarter of a century.
Discovered Torino Manuscript
It is important to recognize that Cecchetti varied his enchaînements to suit the particular attributes of some of his students. He also revised and developed many of the exercises during his lifetime.
Examinations in Australia
During 1934 the Dandré-Levitoff Russian Ballet toured Australia headed by Olga Spessiva, the renowned Russian ballerina.
The Early Days
Although I cannot claim to be a founder of the Society, I think it was only in its third year when Margaret Craske, whom I had known, admired and liked very much when we were both in the 1921 Diaghilev Seasons, persuaded me, much against my inclination as I had a great aversion to examinations, to join the Society.
