RESERVE AD SPACE  - NOW

The Spring Performance is quickly approaching! It is now time to reserve advertising space in the program book. One can  congratulate a student, wish them well and acknowledge their hard work. One can also advertise their business or company -- OR do both. 

There are three sizes of ads from which to choose. It is also very inexpensive to place an ad AND it shows

support for the school. The Deadline is April 17!

​DEVON LUXTON WINS FIRST PLACE (Updated: March 15)

Congratulations to thirteen year old Paris Ballet and Dance Student Devon Luxton's win at First Place at the Junior Men’s Semi-Finals at Youth America Grand Prix in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday, March 3, 2018. While only dancing for eighteen months, Devon’s First Place win allows him the rare opportunity of now being invited to New York City to compete in the Finals this year.

Addison Joslin who also competed did very well with very high scores, true elegance, and was an audience favorite!

Youth America Grand Prix is considered the American Olympics of the dance world. It is adjudicated by the top names in international dance. The competition is attended by scouts representing major dance companies from all over the world. It can be easily the next step for a dancer into the professional field.

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
​GREAT AUDITION FOR THE SPRING PERFORMANCE

Dear Dancers and Parents,
The audition this past weekend for  A Midsummer Night’s Dream was phenomenal! It was incredible to see every dancer working so hard while putting themselves “out there.”  There were also movements and dramatic requests which may have been foreign, and new to them. They all did their best which made me proud to watch!

Let me tell you now, this show will be very difficult to cast.  We all saw some truly great things during the audition. Plus, there are other factors which are also important to consider when casting any show.

As everyone knows, I rely on the help of our expert and talented judges during auditions. I look at and take their recommendations very seriously.  So, a huge “thank you” to this past weekend’s judges Stefanie Wolfington (for the younger levels) and Idael German (for the older levels). 

Every single role is important. Understand casting a show is not done lightly. I must take many things into consideration. It is a well-thought out process. Casting will be up within a few weeks.

Now, with auditions over, and after the list goes up, rehearsal s start immediately in March. I guarantee it’s going to be another great Paris Ballet production!

Sincerely,
Director Jean Hugues Feray

A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR - GREAT KRAVIS PERFORMANCE

Dear all Dancers, Families and Patrons,
Words cannot express my pride in our SOLD OUT performance at the Kravis Center this past Sunday on February 11. It was a long day and everyone danced so beautifully while giving their all. Thank you all for attending! This particular show meant so much to me because I was able to present my wonderful dancers in the very theatre in which I had performed for many years while I was a professional dancer with Ballet Florida. 

I would like to thank the entire staff of the Kravis Center for their warm hospitality and help. Thank you to Liz Diamiano, Angela Gutierrez,  Levonda Harris, Christi Keavy, Michael Keavy, Kristen Lenehan, James Nobel, and Joseph J. Bucheck III. These are my incredible army of committed volunteers on the list who helped before, during and after the performance. And as always, a huge thank you to Karen Mauncy for her incredible organizational skills while having things ready to go for the performance and afterwards, and getting it all unpacked and put away. It’s an enormous job! We absolutely cannot have these wonderful performances without their help.

Now, getting ready for the next” big one,” and as a reminder; auditions for The Spring Performance are this
Saturday on February 17. Information has been emailed and here on the website.

I truly appreciate everyone’s support while experiencing their children grow into beautiful dancers, and great committed and responsible young women and men!


Sincerely,
Jean-Hugues Feray
