Why Center Stage Dance Academy?

The Cecchetti method is a ballet technique and rigorous training method devised by the Italian ballet master and pedagogue Enrico Cecchetti (1850–1928). The method seeks to develop the essential skills of dance (e.g., balance, poise, strength, elevation, elasticity, and ballon). Its goal for students is to learn to express themselves through dance by studying and internalizing the basic principles, in an effort to become self-reliant rather than imitating the movements executed by their teacher. Cecchetti-trained dancers have achieved places in ballet and dance companies all over the world.


Degree and Accreditations

Our Classes and Fees

Here are some references from past schools

Faith Weeden was involved at Stepping Stones Montessori Pre-school as an extra curriculum ballet teacher from 2006 to 2016. During this time she contributed dance items to school concerts and also included her Stepping Stones students in her dance studio productions. We have found Faith to always be very willing to please and cooperate. Faith's teaching was of a very high standard - children, parents and staff were all sorry to say goodbye.
Mrs. O. Rasmussen
Admin & Bursar, Stepping Stones Montessori
Since 2006 she has taught ballet technique to boys and girls from Grade R through to Grade 7. Children from all ages were encouraged to perform in the ballet studio shows held every second year, eisteddfods and class show cases. At all times we found her to be hard working and patient with the children. She has an easy nature with staff and parents alike. She was much loved by all children and staff.

Principal, Grootte Schuur Primary

She has been the Ballet teacher at UCT Educare Centre from 2005 - 2016. I found Ms Weeden to be very professional, yet personal in her relationship with the parents, staff members and most importantly the children she taught. She created a safe, calm fun-filled learning environment which afforded the little dancers the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential. I found Ms. Weeden to be extremely organised and very punctual. We enjoyed working alongside her. Ms Weeden will be a asset to any institution and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
