Thank you KANTER for alerting us to this event.

In a way, it seems appropriate for the city of Paris to be a sponsor, if for no other reason than to honor the memory of Olga Preobrajenskaya, who taught technique classes for so many years at Studio Wacker, with all she had learned from Enrico Cecchetti.

Here is a time-line.

It's in French, but perfectly understandable.

Carlo Blasis

enseigna à
Giovanni Lepri

qui fut le professeur du père de Enrico Cecchetti, et qui enseigna à Florence en 1864 à

Enrico Cecchetti

qui enseigna entr’autres à

Nikolai et Serguei Legat, Pavlova, Nijinsky, Karsavina, Fokine, Agrippina Vaganova
Adolph Bolm, Mikhail Oboukhoff, Anatole Oboukhoff, Ninette de Valois, Julie Sedova, Alexander Gorsky, Alexandra Danilova, Alicia Markova, Anton Dolin,
Preobrajenska, Kchessinskaya et Egorova
Vincenzo Celli, Margaret Craske
Serge Lifar

En 1918, Cecchetti ouvrit son

London Ballet School

où il enseigna à tous les grands danseurs de l’époque.

Avant de rentrer en Italie en 1923, il a donné à cinq anglaises son certificat personnel d’enseignement

Margaret Craske, Mary Skeaping,
Derra de Moroda, Ninette de Valois and Lucie Saronova.

En 1922, en Angleterre, la Cecchetti Society fut fondée par

Stanislas Idzikowski, Cyril Beaumont,
Margaret Craske, Marie Rambert, Derra de Moroda.

Frenchmen will recall that not only Preobrajenska, but also Cecchetti's students Kchessinskaya and Egorova, taught in France for over forty years, while Serge Lifar was head of the Opera for almost twenty years.

And I've certainly forgotten several names.

Here is another time-line


enseigna à

Mikhail Oboukhoff

qui enseigna à

Vladimir Ponomarev

qui enseigna à

Alexander Pushkin

Cecchetti enseigna aussi à

Agrippina Vaganova

qui, elle, enseigna juste après la Révolution à Alexander Pushkin et à

Vera Volkova

auprès de l’Ecole de ballet russe de Achim Volynskii et Nikolai Legat



était le professeur principal de

Erik Bruhn

et enseigna à

Rudolf Nureyev

lorsque ce dernier vint au Danemark

Vera Volkova

était aussi le principal professeur de

Margot Fonteyn

partenaire par la suite de Nureyv. Fonteyn attribua à l’enseignement de Vera Volkova le secret de son art.
