Italian, French, Russian and English ballet methods are the the primary methods of classical ballet taught around the world

La Scala Theatre Ballet School was founded in 1813 by Benedetto Ricci and has been in almost continuous operation in Milan since then, producing many famous dancers, so it is not surprising that the Italian Scarf Dance found its way into the Maureen Saunders School of Dance Revue last weekend.

Enrico Cecchetti, a famous Italian dancer, mime and later instructor at La Scala until his passing in 1928 is the founder of the Cecchetti method of dance that is taught in many ballet schools today including Maureen Saunders School of Dance..
