Abstract

This thesis is designed to demonstrate how the techniques of Cecchetti and the Royal Academy of Dancing differ in the training of a dancer. There are many differences in the training. They are the weight placement, the positions of the arms, the use of the feet, the order of the barre work, and the timing of the exercises. The similarities of the two techniques are body placement, positions of the feet, and some positions of the arms. Each technique may produce a well- trained dancer.
