A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Dear Students, Families, Friends, and Patrons,
Last Friday night's performance was truly a phenomenal ​evening in many ways. It was exhilarating for me to watch my wonderful students do what they love in front of a live audience. It was even more exciting because the works which they performed were truly some of the greatest works ​in the world of dance. I am so very proud to see them perform so well, and to be able to present them at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in the Rinker Playhouse.

Thank you to all my students who work so hard They make me proud. Their talent, commitment, hard work, desire and dedication has shown brightly once again! Thank you to our audience, for attending or watching the Live-Stream of the evening's performance.

The Kravis Center is always so gracious and welcoming to us. Thank you so much to their entire staff from the box office, front of house staff, to the crew.

Thank you to Jessie Betancourt, Joseph J. Bucheck III, Angela Gutierrez, Levonda Harris, Julie Luxton, Karen Manucy, James Nobel, Emily Schubert and all the volunteers who worked backstage. They all helped make this performance possible. We could not have done this production without them. Also, a big thank you to Sheena Rice for helping coordinate the live-Stream orders.

It has been a very difficult year for all. I along with my staff, work so hard to help all my students get better each day -- while providing them the finest dance education possible.

Together while following all the guidelines and protocols which are put into place…We truly make a difference!

​Sincerely,
Jean-Hugues Feray
Founder and Director
