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. Besides their
incredible teaching abilities, they shared their experiences
of what it was like to be a student in one of the greatest
ballet schools in the world - The Paris Opera Ballet
School. They also shared their many experiences and their knowledge of what it was like to dance professionally in some of the greatest companies in the world!

It was amazing tho see the tremendous amount of improvement made by students in the eight days. These
dedicated students truly worked hard and it showed!
 
Serious students who opted for other "activities" during this time truly missed out on an incredible experience and wonderful opportunity to expand their dance ​education.

Paris Ballet and Dance, and Paris Conservatory can not thank Judith A. Mitchell, Tracy Butler, Miranda Hawkins and the Kravis Center's entire staff enough for their help and hospitality during this collaboration. Thank you to my very own phenomenal staff for their support and help!

There are a lot of photos being uploaded daily to the Facebook with more to come.

​ALSO

Please, look for the times and dates for the Magnifique Ballet Intensive Winter Session to be announced very soon!

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
