Welcome to the Southwest Cecchetti Council of America (SWCCA)

a note from our Chairperson

Welcome!  The Cecchetti Council of America is a nonprofit international educational organization of ballet teachers who have submitted to examination for each level they are qualified to teach. The Council’s activities encompass five regions of the United States which are represented by eighteen committees. Committees are also established in Haiti, Jamaica, and Canada. As part of this new global network, the CCA continues to ensure quality standards in classical ballet training.
The Southwest Committee comprises the dancing communities of Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, and Arkansas.  We stay connected to our National Committee by Liaisons which are assigned to us every 3 years.  These liaisons work closely with us, attend and teach at our Spring Seminars and are a grand resource for ballet knowledge.  
The Southwest Committee is dedicated to enriching their students with the discipline and beauty of the Cecchetti method.

A liaison is assigned to each committee every 3 years.  They are a wealth of knowledge that keeps us connected and up to date with our National Committee, ballet competitions, Summer Intensives and on going resources for our members.
