Oh, my goodness! I just came across your page and it brought back such wonderful childhood memories for me. I began dancing with Ms. Lynn when I was about four until I was fourteen. At the risk of dating myself, that was about 43 years ago! I have wonderful memories of preparing for, taking and passing my Cecchetti test. Ms. Lynn was truly a wonderful teacher. ❤
Anyone missing their phone?
Thank you, Mrs. Lynn for instilling this same love of dance in your own students. We treasure the many years spent at your studio with Elizabeth and William.

We saw this challenge from the Cecchetti Council of America and thought it would be fun for our dancers to participate. What is your favorite Cecchetti step?

We are missing our dancers terribly during #socialisolation so we are creating the #cecchettichallenge to keep you dancing! To start, we would love to see your favorite step from your current #Cecchetti grade. Tag us and we will share in our stories!

Our Story

Medora Lynn has successfully owned and directed the Ballet Slipper, located in Westminster on Hersh Avenue, since 1974! Medora is a certified teacher of the renowned international Cecchetti method of ballet which requires intensive studies and then passing of professional teacher exams.

Medora has studied at the Peabody institute in Baltimore, Maryland, The Washington School of Ballet, Arlington, Virginia, with Joyce Shietze of Ottawa, Canada, and with Kathleen Brown of Virginia. Prior to her ownership of the Ballet Slipper, she taught students of the embassy staff of Jakarta, Indonesia, the YMCA of Carroll County, and students from McDaniel College.

The hard work that is put forth by Medora's students in each class is put on display in a magnificently choreographed recital every other year. These recitals, which encompass three days, are extremely well attended by the community; in addition, all proceeds go directly back into our community. In the past, thousands of dollars have been given to the American Red Cross and the Carroll County Public Library.

Several students began studying with Medora in 1971 and are continuing to dance at the Ballet slipper today! Many students have returned after graduating from college. The majority of Medora's students continue to dance for many years.Ballet Slipper students have the option of preparing for student Cecchetti Exams administered by a professional board of examiners from the CCA.
