A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

Dear Patrons, Students, Families, Friends and Donors,

This past week-end’s performance was incredible. I am
so very proud of each of my students for their hard work
and dedication. Friday night showed them at their very
best. 

It takes a lot to produce a show of this size. I would like to thank those for their help before, during and after the performance.

First, let me thank my staff Liana Damiano, Amy Fernandez, Liz Friedman, Idael German, Melody Kline, Karen Manucy. Olivier Pardina, Risselle Alexandra Portuondo, Martha Satinoff and Emily Schubert. They are with me 100% of the time, their daily support is crucial not only to the education of my students but to performances, as well.

Thank you to Palm Beach Gardens High School, Cynthia McDade and Andre Coore. Thank you to Tyler Shaw for the lighting design. Thank you to Liana Damiano and Michael Keavy for the precious help with sound. 

Thank you to all the volunteers and others who’s enerous help and hard work went beyond the call of duty including Cristina Ciolacu, Tangi Colombel, Erika DeOreo, Robyn Begley, Jessie Betancourt, Joseph J.
Bucheck III, Francelia Esther, Jodi Flanigan, Agnes Frank, Angela Gutierrez, Levonda Harris, Nicole Joslin,Christi Keavy, Michael Keavy, Riley Kimmerling, Roxy King-Currann, Krystle Little, Julie Luxton, Steve Luxton, Jeanette Medina, Monica Mery, Lindsay Moretti, Angie Moye, Denise Negron-Cruz, Suzanne Rothman, Emily Schubert and Ashley Walker. 

Thank you to JoAnna Hoke and William Linn for the exquisite hand made costumes. 

A huge thank you to Karen Manucy. I do not know what it would be like doing any project, event or performance without her extra time, organizational skills and complete devotion to Paris Ballet and Dance.

As promised, and as part of Paris Ballet’s upcoming Ten Year Anniversary, I made a huge announcement at the end of the performance. I am so excited to be bringing Paris Ballet to Dreyfoos Hall - the main stage – at the Kravis Center with a great Mixed Bill to include “Cinderella.” The performance will feature stars from American Ballet Theatre. We will be performing two days as a regular show offered to the general public, and as a part of the Kravis Center’s Educational Department’s S.T.A.R, Series when they bring in over 2,000 school children.

Simple words cannot convey how extremely proud I am with everyone’s hard work, discipline, total dedication, and wonderful performances. It was also |a pleasure to share such close time with my students along with their mothers, fathers, and families members.

Devon Luxton who placed Third in the Junior Men Classical Category and is moving on to the NYC Finals.

Peer Gynt received Top 12 in the Ensemble Category with a very high score, and will go to the NYC Finals.

Congratulations to Crina Ciolacu and Clare Keavy who were in the top 24 out of 135 girls in the Junior Classical Category.

Congratulations to Raelin Flanigan, Isabella Gutierrez, Cyan Love and Maia DeOreo who out of 135 girls whom competed, had high and promising scores.

Congratulations to Lily Golish, Byron Matysek, Andrea Medina and Mario Mery who did not compete in individual presentations but who also danced with our other competitors in Peer Gynt.

I would like to also congratulate all the others throughout the country who either won, placed and who participated. It was a pleasure seeing all this talent come together this past weekend

Dear Patrons, Students and Families,

Dance is not an easy accomplishment. It takes hard work, and total dedication. I am so very proud of my students and their performance at the Kravis Center this past Sunday night. Everyone did their absolute best. They worked so hard and again, this show proves it.

Thank you to Karen Manucy for her expert and wonderful organizational skills and constant support, and Tangi Colombel for the often thankless job of transportation, and loading and unloading. Thank you to Robyn Begley, Erika DeOreo, Jodi Flanigan, Angela Guiterrez, Christi Keavy, James Nobel, Sean Rothman, Suzanne Rothman for all their help back stage. Thank you to William Linn for doing Oberon and Puck’s make up, and Joseph J. Bucheck III for supplying the makeup.

Also, thank you to the entire staff of the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts from ticket sales to all the technical aspects of the show. They are all incredible for what they do. This is why The Kravis Center is one of the finest venues in the world!

Our next big venture is March 6 through 10, 2019 as we will be in Tulsa, Oklahoma as part of the Youth America Grand Prix 20th Anniversary competition season. 

It just keeps getting better. I appreciate the fact that you are all a part of it!
