About Carol

Hi, I'm Carol. I started ballet classes when I was just five years old with my first ballet teacher Miss Hook. From the age of nine, I joined Myra Silcox Dancing School and started helping my teacher and inspiration, Myra Silcox, from the age of 14. I started taking classes independently from the age of 16 before setting up my very own school and qualifying to teach The Cecchetti Method the best part of thirty years ago! I hope that ballet will give my pupils confidence, grace and agility. Quoting a plaque that I was once given, 'Dance teachers help their students find the song in their hearts, the beat in their feet and the passion for life.'  

The Cecchetti Method

The Cecchetti Method of classical ballet was founded by the inspirational Italian dancer and teacher, Enrico Cecchetti. The method was taught by Cecchetti to the most famous 20th century dancers including the iconic Anna Pavlova. During the early 20th century, a number of well known professional ballet schools were founded, teaching a curriculum based on the method. These included the Royal Ballet School, Rambert Ballet School, National Ballet School of Canada and the Australia Ballet School. 

In 1922, the Cecchetti Method was documented for the first time, and The Cecchetti Society was also established in the same year. 

The Cecchetti Method is an outstanding system of training for all, from the small child through to the vocational student, professional dancer and future teacher. 

Internationally recognised, the method includes a full vocabulary of movement and exercises composed by Cecchetti himself for the development of strength, balance, poise and elevation. 


The Cecchetti Method and its examinations are part of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), and are accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority in England and Wales.
