GUEST TEACHER - MR. SATINOFF
A very special thank you to Mr. Jeff Satinoff. He was the special guest teacher for Level 6 yesterday. Mr. Satinoff was a prominent dancer performing with North Carolina Dance Theater and for ten years with Feld Ballet. He has danced as a guest artist with major companies such as Louisville Ballet, The Colorado Ballet, Milwaukee Ballet, Oregon Ballet and the companies of Ohad Naharan and Ros Newman, and Chamber Ballet USA.

Mr. Satinoff has staged and/or created works for Chamber Ballet USA, Juilliard, School of American Ballet, North Carolina School of the Arts, Princeton Ballet, The Hartford Ballet, Memphis Ballet, Dayton Ballet and others. He also served as Artistic Director of Danesouth in Charleston, SC, and The Lake Erie Ballet creating several works including full-lenght The Nutcracker,  La Fille Mal Gardee and Coppelia
…AND he served as the Dean of Dance for Dreyfoos School of the Arts from the day the school was inaugurated, and for many, many years afterwards.

​Level 4 had a special rare treat being taught by Director Mr. Feray. This level also got a special “look” into what they would be doing for the upcoming performance of The Nutcracker. Having Mr. Feray as a teacher yesterday AND “The Nutcracker” was truly beyond exciting for them. After class, he was excited, as well!

There is always something great and wonderful going on at Paris Ballet and Dance!




AUGUST 28, 2017
​GREAT AUDITION
It was a fantastic audition for The Nutcracker on August
27. Paris Ballet students let their love for ballet pour out of their hearts! Everyone did wonderfully. It's going to be very difficult to decide. The judges mentioned how difficult it will be to cast the show.

So many of dancers have come so far since last year So, it looks like for the second year in a row, there is no need to invite a professional Ballerina to perform the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy ...Not to mention all the other roles like Snow Queen, Dew Drop, Arabian, Bonbons. These parts will be cast from dancers in the school!

Director Mr. Feray did great organizing the wonderful judges, and putting it all together for this huge audition.
Thank you Karen Manucy, for getting the sign-in process organized, Christi Keavy for helping during singing in and out, and of course the three wonderful judges, Jennifer Cole, Lori Ramirez, and Ben Slayen.                                                                   ​                                                                                       ...PHOTOS ON FACEBOOK




AUGUST 26, 2017
CONGRATULATIONS NICHOLAS GARLO
Former Paris Ballet and Dance student Nicholas Garlo has now joined the league of professional dancers by
accepting his first full-position as a company member with Ballet Quad Cities located in Rock Island, Illinois. The well-established American company was founded 1996, and does five major productions a year. Ballet Quad Cities is the longest-running resident professional ballet company in the entire state of Iowa and western Illinois. It is one of only 100 in the nation.

Nicholas Garlo came to Paris Ballet and Dance as a boy to begin his serious dance study until he graduated at Dreyfoos School of the Arts. While with Paris Ballet and Dance, he performed many exciting roles, and ​later ​danced with the Palm Beach Opera, and others.

Utilizing his great dance education, he was accepted into the Conservatory of Dance at SUNY Purchase College in New York. There, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and a Minor in Arts Management. In May of 2017, he graduated, Cum Laude with the ​Bert Terborgh Award.

Nicholas also studied at numerous summer intensives such as Springboard Danse Montreal, Jacob’s Pillow the Contemporary Program, The Netherlands Dance Theater Intensive, Launch with Northwest Dance Project, Arts Umbrella, the Movement Invention Project, and Joffrey Chicago. He also received the chance to study abroad in Taiwan for five months, where he continued to study and research classical ballet, modern, contemporary, and eastern influenced techniques such as Chinese Opera Kung Fu.

This past summer, Nicholas had the opportunity ​to go to Berlin where he rehearsed and later performed Dust choreographed by Roderick George at the Suzanne Dellal Centre in Tel-Aviv, Israel. These
performances opened the dance festival in Tel-Aviv.

Besides being extremely talented, Nicholas always worked very hard with drive, focus, desire and a true passion for dance. When given instruction and corrections, he understood while applying them immediately. He was a model as to what a dance student should be, and a joy to have in the school.

Director Jean-Hugues Feray and the staff of Paris Ballet and Dance are very proud of Nick, and his many wonderful accomplishments. His future is just beginning and is extremely bright as a professional dancer!​​

AUDITION FOR THE NUTCRACKER ON AUGUST 27 DRAWS CLOSER

carefully and well thought out with many factors involved in the ​decision making process.

With this huge commitment there is a great opportunity for a dancer's personal growth. It's an exhilarating time!

This Summer's Magnifique Ballet Intensive has come to ​end. It was such a pleasure to work with the legendary Charles Jude, and the other great internationally renowned master teachers and artists Olivier Pardina, Christophe Maraval and Muriel Maffre.

A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
​Dear Students, Parents, Patrons and Friends,
Words cannot describe how incredibly proud I am of the Spring Performance. It truly brought tears of joy to my 
eyes! Each year, performances continue to get better. I sincerely hope you are as happy as I am. It is great to share the  experience of your children's development, ​improvement and very hard work.

Yes, at Paris Ballet and Dance, and Paris Ballet Conservatory, we push our students to do their absolute best. While fun, often classes and rehearsals may be grueling and extremely hard work. However, as you saw this past weekend, every single student brought themselves to their highest level. They should be very proud of themselves, as well. Even though many students will not be dancers, learning life lessons about dedication, hard work, commitment are valuable ethics they can carry on to all walks of life.

Thank you to our beautiful guest dancers, Emill Huememaa, Claire Boutte, Xander Visker and Gillian Yoder. It was with great pleasure and pride to have them on the stage because they are all former students of mine and the School. When in the area, they still take classes with me!

​Thank you to Sandra Baran at Jupiter Academy of Music, and​ ​Alice Culbreath at Grace Notes Foundation​ for the ​wonderful musicians for the second performance​.

There are so many people to thank! I hope I have them ​all. These people not only helped out but insured the safety and security of your children. ​Thank you to all of the parents/ guardians and others who have generously given their time to help make production possible including: Robyn Begley, Mercedes Childers, Cristina Ciolacu, ​Alison Colbert, ​Tangi Colombel, Erika DeOreo, Barbara Francisco, Angela Gutierrez, Stephanie Higginbotham, Barbra Kaplan, Christi Keavy, Michael Keavy, Yeni Leyva, Roxanna King, Kristen Lenihan, (Mrs. Lenihan – Kristen Lenihan’s mother), Missy Megginson, Jeanette Medina, Lindsey Moretti, James Nobel, Karen Nobel,​ Emily Stewart, Michael Pachelli, Ashley Walker, and Michaela Wilkinson.

Thank you to ALL my incredible and experienced staff. ​Their knowledge and experience is unsurpassed. Thank you to Kristen Lenihan for her work on these past performances and her technical help. Thank you to Johanna Ross for being my rehearsal assistance, and with extra choreography​​ and backstage help. She is truly a valuable asset to our School and Conservatory. I enjoy working with her. ​Thank you to Joseph J. Bucheck III for his assistance​ and extra coaching during and after every rehearsal​, backstage help, and everything else he does. His - over forty years of experience, care and passion is another wonderful asset. 

Extra special thanks to Karen Manucy! In all honesty, her devotion on a daily basis helps the school and Conservatory run. I truly cannot say enough great things about her. For many years, Karen has worked by my side looking after the school and your children. None of it could be done without her!

For the record, and it must be stated, these dedicated people who worked on rehearsals and performances did so on a voluntary basis to nurture your children, and share their knowledge and passion for dance with them. These are the things that help make Paris Ballet and Dance, and Paris Ballet Conservatory an incredible school. 

​Also, don't forget all the Summer Intensives, Camps and Classes offered. Help your child continue their progress.

Sincerely,
Jean-Hugues Feray
Founder and Director
