ELITE AND ACCELERATED TRAINING FOR THE SERIOUS DANCE STUDENT PREPARING FOR A PROFESSIONAL CAREER IN DANCE!

Students who attend these programs benefit from incredible teachers with both seasoned professional performance and classroom experience. They receive special coaching on a daily basis, and have performance opportunities with the chance to rehearse and perform alongside real professionals. They will also share the opportunity to be taught by the great artists from the Paris Opera Ballet! The first guest will be Marie-Agnes Gillot in January 2017.

Paris Ballet and Dance is also part of the Joffrey Ballet School Outreach and Education Program. We are also thrilled to announce our new collaboration with the Kravis Center for the performing Arts in West Palm Beach.

February 20, 2016
Yesterday, Paris Ballet and Dance's Open House was wonderful with an incredible attendance. It was a great opportunity to come together, have fun, mingle, talk with teachers, and see students dance in a short informal studio performance. 

Open House is also an opportunity for new people to come and see what Paris Ballet and Dance is all about. This year was no exception. Mr. Feray was able to talk to parents of several prospective students.

Students from the school and the Conservatory performed variations, and the Finale of Peer Gynt. The Open House gave other students a great opportunity to perform their brief audition solos. They all did an excellent job. I am so proud of each of my student's. They work so hard and deserve a chance to be seen.” said Mr. Feray.

Mr. Steve Caras was “in the house,” as well. He dropped by to say “hello,” and stayed to watch the performance. It is always a great honor to have such a renowned artist such as Steve the building as a guest!

Thank you to TullePilates & Gyrotonic Jupiter, Kids Need More Art, and others for their generous donations towards the mini-silent auction to benefit Paris Ballet Conservatory. Mr. Feray also donated a one hour private class.

Many people helped make the Open Hose an enormous success. Tangi Colombel, Barbara Kaplan, Yeni Leyva (and family), and Joseph J. Bucheck III helped in the set up, and afterwards for the breakdown. Mr. Leyva actually vacuumed, and mopped the studio floors afterwards. (This was a very special treat, and well appreciated by the regular staff.) Thank you to students Olivia Colbert, and Ericca Leyva and Emilie Leyva for their help afterwards helping everyone. Thank you to the others who helped wishing to remain anonymous. 

A very special thank you to Karen Manucy!
She spent endless hours before anyone arrived, organizing and getting everything ready for guests. Though it was Sunday, she was even in the building today finishing up with the details.) It would be extremely difficult to do an event like this without her skills and devotion.

Mr. Feray, and the staff of Paris Ballet and Dance and Paris Ballet Conservatory thanks every guest who attended. As always, Open House was a great experience and lots of fun.



February 19, 2016
​Yesterday, Estelle Shaw was in the studio filming dancers of Paris Ballet Conservatory and Mr. Feray, for a great new upcoming project of hers. This project will benefit serious dancers and teachers alike.

Estelle was a former student of Marie Hale, Claudia Cravey and Lynda Swiadon. Academy of Ballet Florida was a school based on very strong ballet training, and philosophy believing good dancers needed to be versed in ballet, jazz, modern and tap to be well rounded, and more competitive in the professional world. Ms. Shaw's varied and expert training at the Academy of Ballet Florida provided her with the “tools” she need to be a professional dancer, international performer, and entertainer.

“If I studied at any other school, with my disability and body-type, I would be one of those students who would be told I would never be dancer,” said Estelle while she briefly spoke to the students before filming. As a student she fought Scoliosis. While she wore a brace all her growing years. However, she came to all her scheduled classes with almost perfect attendance and always gave her all. She happily performed all roles given to her with an unbridled love of dance. She is a “poster child” and an example of true commitment, hard work, desire and dedication.

Her professional career took off. She auditioned and was accepted for Eddie Tousaint's Company in Canada. However, about a year later and like a lot of dancers of the day, she wanted to dance with Ballet Florida. She happily returned home to Palm Beach County.

Estelle was (and still is) a true powerhouse, and became well rounded dancer/performer and artist. After many years dancing at Ballet Florida with her willingness to be at work -- to work -- she would try anything, and give over 200%. She performed leading and memorable roles working with some of the world's leading and renowned choreographers.

Then, her career took another amazing turn. She was personally selected by Ann Reinking to be in the National Broadway show Fosse. She toured internationally for over two years while also being the Dance Captain for the show. She not only performed but was responsible for giving daily classes AND taught the show's intricate choreography to new cast members.

Now living in California, over the years, she is married, taught many Fosee-style and other Master Classes and has been actively involved in dance, fitness and nutrition. Her positive attitude keeps her grounded and well-connected to everyone she has ever met.

Paris Ballet and Dance looks forward to Ms. Shaw's return in the future to continue her new project
...And to teach Master Classes.

On a side note: When Estelle Tomasovic Shaw danced at Ballet Florida, she also shared the stage with Paris Ballet and Dance Founder and Director Jean-Hugues Feray, Joseph J. Bucheck III, Jennifer Cole and Idael German.

A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

Dearest Students and Friends,

Last night's presentation of the Florida Youth Dance Gala was truly wonderful. It was an honor to be a part of all the amazing schools who performed, while my own talented students also shared the stage with them.

It was really nice to see everyone in the Florida dance community coming together to share their best and brightest. As always, I loved seeing the people who I knew from when I danced locally with Ballet Florida. They are still involved with dance having become incredible directors, teachers and coaches.

Thank you Mauricio Canete for the invitation and allowing Paris Ballet and Dance to be a part of it. Thank you Lauren Anderson for the Master Class, and being a great hostess for the evening. Most of all, thank you for being a huge inspiration, and driving force in the world of dance.

Thank you to the The Duncan Theatre at Palm Beach State College and staff for being so hospitable to my dancers.

I must say I am so very proud of all my students. They worked so hard, and were very excited and proud to be a part of the Gala. While rehearsals may be grueling at times for all involved, they get young students ready for these exact times
...To show off why they train so diligently on a daily basis.

Moments like this make me realize how much I love teaching and sharing my experience. Everyday, my wonderful students shine and give me all the reasons to why I do what I do. Together with their talent, commitment, hard work, desire and dedication, we all make a great team!

Sincerely,
Jean-Hugues Feray
Director

​Today there was a mini photo shoot with all the boys at Paris Ballet and Dance. Florida World of Dance Magazine is doing an article because of the amount of young male talent there is in the school.

JEAN-HUGUES FERAY AT THE KRAVIS CENTER FOR P.E.A.K.
Paris Ballet and Dance, and Paris Ballet Conservatory Founder and Director Jean-Hugues Feray will be working with Steve Caras and The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts’ “Provocative Entertainment at Kravis” (P.E.A.K.) Pre-Performance Talk. Mr. Feray will be assisting Mr. Caras, and former French ballet dancer Gilles Brinas. Mr Brinas is now the choreographer and director of the nine year old, Argentine-based company Che Malambo.

Che Malambo, excites audiences through precise footwork and rhythmic stomping, drumming of the bombos, and singing and whirling boleadoras (lassos with stones on the end). Presenting a thrilling, percussive dance and music spectacle, the company’s work celebrates the unique South American cowboy tradition of the gaucho. This powerhouse all-male company of 14 gauchos Che Malambo brings fiery Malambo traditions and virtuosic dancing to the contemporary stage for an exhilarating and entertaining show that is perfect for the entire family. Danced solely by men, the Malambo began in the 17th century as competitive duels that would challenge skills of agility, strength, and dexterity. Zapeteo, their fast paced footwork, is inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses in their native Argentina.

The all-male group will be performing at the Kravis Center for two nights on February 2 and 3, at 7:30 PM. The talk is free to all ticket-holding audience members, and takes place at 6:15 on February 2 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.

EVERYTHING has now been taught, and sections “put together” during rehearsals for The Nutcracker rehearsals. It has never been done this quickly before. This leaves much more time for refining, polishing and coaching which is normal and very important for any production.

Thank you all so very much Paris Ballet and Dance's wonderful students, incredible staff and Joseph Bucheck III
….And all parents for making sure children made (and continue to make) it to rehearsal and being on time. The incredible volunteer Moms “rock it” every Saturday – and other days of the week. It's like a well oiled machine!

All of this is going to make a promising run of The Nutcracker this year.

A warm and heartfelt congratulations, and thank you to all Paris Ballet and Dance students. They were amazing at the audition yesterday! Each student should be very proud as they pushed themselves to a wonderfully high level which truly made the judges' decisions extremely difficult.* 

Thank you to our judges, Jessica Benton, Katie Redmond Green, Ben Slayen and Hollond Schiller. Thank you to Emily Schubert for being the rehearsal assistant, and a judge, as well. As always, thank you to the administrative staff Karen Manucy and Mattie Green. Another shout out to Joseph J. Bucheck III for helping "re-set" afterwards, and being at the right place with his camera to help document everything. 

Please, view the photos of the audition on Facebook.

The School has just completed the second week with after school classes and the first week with the morning Conservatory classes. It is already rewarding! The wonderful staff who's input and professionalism has been greatly appreciated. Their dedication is so important. Students and their families have shown their support, commitment, hard work, dedication and trust in Paris Ballet and Dance, and its vision. It is always a huge motivation.

With auditions over, rehearsals for The Nutcracker starting in a little over one week. From now until the closing night, it is long and very hard work for everyone involved. The result is always spectacular.

It is very important to re-read the School Policies for rehearsals, costume fittings and being at the theatre. Paris Ballet and Dance is very strict about them so, it is a good idea to always be extremely familiar. 

* Please remember: The decisions for casting is very difficult and well thought out! There are many factors which must be considered. All casting is final. Mr. Feray nor the staff will not field questions or discuss the matter.



August 29, 2015

STUDENT AUDITIONS: THIS SATURDAY AUGUST 29
Paris Ballet and Dance is thrilled to welcome three distinguished guest judges who will sit on the panel for Auditions: 
Hollond Schiller
Ms. Schiller graduated from New World School of the Arts with a B.F.A. in Dance. She is a prominent teacher within the dance community in South Florida having taught at Academy of Ballet Florida, Palm Beach Ballet Center, Bak Middle School of the Arts and so many more.

Katie Redmond Green
Ms. Green is a prominent studio owner who's extensive training includes ProAm Dance Studio in Ft. Lauderdale, The Cleveland Civic Ballet, The Dance Company, Dance Arts, and Pointe Park College in Pittsburgh, University Center for the Performing Arts, Ballet Academy de Miami, and the Magda Aunon School of Classical Ballet. Additional ballet training and education was provided by instructors at S.E.R.B.A., The Rock School of the Pennsylvania Ballet, Tony Catanzaro, David Howard, and Brenda Gooden. 

Jessica Benton
Ms. Benton is a former dancer with Ballet Florida. While at Ballet Florida, she danced many principal roles including works created by George Balanchine, Val Caniparoli Daniel Ezralow, Sean Lavery, Vicente Nebrada, David Parsons and Mauricio Wainrot, to only name a few! Also, while with Ballet Florida, she performed principal roles in over 27 states in the country.

One of her most notable and most remembered roles was Clara in Marie Hale's incredible production of The Nutcracker. She was considered by most as the ultimate Clara. Company dancers would actually stand in the wings to watch her perform.  As an audience member, one forgot she was an adult dancer while being completely immersed in her portrayal of young Victorian adolescent's innocent world of magic, fantasy and first romance. At the end of each performance, audience rose to their feet with adulation! 

With guest judges, student auditions are taken very seriously at Paris Ballet and Dance. Parents are reminded that there is no need for emails, phone, calls and/or note about roles and final choices for those roles. Selections for roles are considered on many levels and based on judge’s selections and a student's ability. The school not only has to think about what is best for the student but production values as well. This is why Paris Ballet and Dance's production of The Nutcracker is so great. 



August 22, 2015

It is with great pride and joy to officially announce two Paris and Dance students have been accepted into two of the most prestigious schools in the US.

Gillian Yoder has been accepted into the year round program with fifty percent scholarship at Next Generation Ballet -Patel Conservatory in Tampa, Florida. Patel's program is normally for students from eight through twelfth grade. Though Gillian is just eleven years old and in the sixth grade, they offered her a position. This past year, she also placed Second in Youth America Grand Prix in Tampa and was invited to compete at the Finals in New York City.

Xander Visker has been accepted into Harid Conservatory in Boca Raton, Florida with FULL tuition scholarship. Remembering from previous news, Xander was afraid and anxious to audition for their past Summer Intensive asking Mr. Feray, “...am I good enough?” The answer was (and still is) is a resounding, “YES!”

Both students began and continued their training at Paris Ballet and Dance. Gillian and Xander are extraordinarily talented. However, talent is not the only attribute wIt's going to be a fabulous year. Let us all make a difference with our love of dance! A good student must be dedicated, work extremely hard and always take corrections like Gillian and Xander.

As they grew up through the “ranks” at Paris Ballet and Dance, they both have been a complete joy and inspiration. These accomplishments are incredible and gratifying. They will both be missed! 

Whenever possible, they will be returning to take class. Also, look for them in our future performances!

It is very important to know schools like Harid and Patel do NOT just accept just any students. They look for the absolute best. The successes of Gillian and Xander is a testament to the incredible training and nurturing one receives under the extensive experience of Director Jean Hugues Feray and Paris Ballet and Dance.

Talent, Commitment, Hard Work, ​Desire and Dedication Deserve Great Training! 



August 1, 2015
Paris Ballet and Dance registration begins next week. August 3 to August 14 will be an exciting time while we get to talk to returning students and welcoming new ones, as well. We are looking forward to seeing everyone as they make plans for the 2015 / 2016 School Year. 

The Paris Ballet Conservatory will accept private auditions until August 29.



July 28, 2015
DID YOU KNOW THAT PARIS BALLET AND DANCE, AND PARIS BALLET CONSERVATORY HAVE DEDICATED CLASSES DURING THE WEEK – EXCLUSIVELY -- FOR BOYS?


An incredible number of THIRTEEN boys attend the school. We are very proud and fortunate of this. Many other schools consider themselves extremely lucky to have just one.

From ages four to sixteen, seven of our young men are in the Advanced Levels with many in the Intermediate Levels. There are several boys in the Beginner Levels, as well.

Besides the extraordinary training at Paris Ballet and Dance, and depending on their age/level, these boys participate in Partnering AND Men's Classes, as well as their regular Ballet Technique, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, and Conditioning classes. While being involved in a great school that offers sopecial programs geared just for them, they also share a special camaraderie and an admiration for each other (along with a dose of a little healthy competition, and loads of fun).

With these extra and exclusive classes, our boys tend to improve at a more advanced rate. With the skills they have acquired, they have a great advantage over the one or two male students in other schools. This past summer, ALL Paris Ballet and Dance Advanced and Intermediate boys were accepted into incredible summer programs including Texas Ballet Theatre Summer Intensive, Harid Conservatory Summer Intensive, The Joffrey Ballet School Summer Intensive, Patel Conservatory Summer Intensive -- WITH scholarships.

At Paris Ballet and Dance, boys and young men are featured using their incredible talent and learned skills during performances, and special events. Also, starting this year there will be not two but three highly accomplished male teacheors who will be part of the team of their instructors to inspire, push and make them better.

For further information about boys and classes at Paris Ballet and Dance, and Paris Ballet Conservatory, contact us.

OPEN REGISTRATION STARTS NEXT WEEK!
During this exciting time we get to talk to returning students while welcoming new ones, as well. We are looking forward to seeing everyone as they make plans for the 2015 / 2016 School Year.

Paris Ballet and Dance student Xander Visker has been was offered to join Harid Conservatory on a year round full scholarship. Xander was a bit anxious to go audition for their Summer Intensive. He asked Mr. Feray, "Mr. Jean, Am I good enough?" Luckily he auditioned and was accepted.

It is too early for he and his family to make such a big decision. Whether or not he attends, he now knows he was good enough. Harid only takes very good and well-trained dancers. Xander is a professional dancer in the making. We at Paris Ballet and Dance are very proud of him.
