Cecchetti Revisited Jun 25, 2000
It's good to see these exercises newly re-minted, as it were. For too long the Cecchetti 'method' was in the hands of people who were preserving it like a piece of old wedding cake, and like a piece of old wedding cake it was stale and crumbling, and being taught by people who wouldn't know Cecchetti if he came up to them on 14th Street. I'm sure you've all met the type: "I teach the 'true' Cecchetti method!" said, breathlessly, as though it was a form a Holy Communion, which, at it's best, it should be.
Everyone involved is to be congratulated.

This book shows the development of his father's work. it is of interest to dance historians and to ballet teachers today.I enjoyed helping the translator on this project and use some of the exercises in my classes.
