The Royal Ballet in Great Britain has adopted the ISTD Cecchetti Classical Ballet method and we are pleased to be accredited as the first ballet school in Tokyo to offer this method.
To achieve ISTD teaching qualifications, students go through a vast amount of training and several levels of examinations. Because the process is so demanding, there are very few ISTD teachers in Japan. All of our full-time teachers are qualified by the ISTD, and this is why we became the first ballet school in Tokyo to be authorised and accredited by the ISTD.

Our ISTD qualified teachers offer various levels of bilingual classes, and they continue to train under coaches from Great Britain to maintain the highest level of teaching skills.

We offer small class sizes for a more personalised approach, and accept students from age 3 to a Vocational level. Our mission is to cultivate the love of Ballet, and to offer our students a genuine ISTD accredited ballet education and environment on a global standard.

Our curriculum is based on The Cecchetti Method which led the birth of Ballet in Great Britain and and The Royal Ballet was founded on the principle of Maestro Enrico Cecchetti.

As described below, the founding of Ballet in Great Britain and the birth of The Royal Ballet were based on the founding principles of Enrico Cecchetti.

The Cecchetti Society UK (first chairman was Enrico Cecchetti himself) was incorporated with the ISTD in 1924. Since then, the ISTD has held jurisdiction over the Cecchetti Method and its examinations. This ballet method was developed by Enrico Cecchetti and it led to the founding of Ballet in Great Britain and the birth of The Royal Ballet.

The founding principles of Enrico Cecchetti influenced both the Royal Ballet School and the Royal Ballet Company, and are generally taught in ballet schools all over Europe, The United States, Canada, Australia, South Africa and elsewhere.

Students at our school have the privilege to take the internationally recognised ISTD Cecchetti Graded Examinations, as well as Vocational Examinations.

These qualifications are recognised by the The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual), which is an agency of the UK government.

Examinations are held in English and are open to our students over age 7 at our school. Successful students will be able to include these internationally recognised qualifications on their resumes when they audition at ballet schools all over the world.

Our Shibuya-Jingumae Main School becomes the venue when the accredited ISTD Examiners visit from the UK and use our school as the examination hall.

We aim to offer the optimal lessons at each level.

We aim to offer the optimal lessons at each level.

While we are pleased to teach and assist highly motivated students to reach their goals, the decisions to promote students to upper class levels is based primarily on the teachers` assessments, and then on the results of examinations (if any).

We ask all students to take trial lessons before enrollment so that we are able to recommend the most appropriate level for each student.

Like schools in the U.K., our school also evaluates each student, and some students are encouraged to challenge the ISTD Cecchetti examinations. As more lessons leads to more achievements, we recommend our students from Grade 1 to take ballet lessons at least twice a week (students from Grade 3 are recommended to attend at least three times a week).
