HAPPY THANKSGIVING
A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Dear Students, Parents, Donors, and all. 
Thanksgiving is here! As Paris Ballet and Dance
celebrates its huge Ten Year Anniversary, I have so
much for which to be grateful. My students are so
loving, dedicated and hard working. So many families
have been so generous with their time and support.
Many donors have come forth to give items for raffles
and auctions while others have given cash gifts to
The Conservatory and regular donations. I have so
many dear friends who constantly show their support,
as well.

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to say
thank you to all, while wishing you a wonderful
Thanksgiving. Let’s keep making a difference.

Love,
Jean-Hugues Feray
Founder and Director

STORM OVER - CLASSES RESUME ​A MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTOR
Dear Students, Families, and Friends, 

It has certainly been a few weary days of hurry up and wait as we all watched Hurricane Dorian slowly make
its approach towards the State. Even though with strong tropical storm effects, Palm Beach County has seemed to have been passed by with the brunt of the projected Category 5 storm. We are all very fortunate. I am very happy everyone made it through this ordeal safely. However, the Bahamas has been devastated. ​My heart and thoughts go out to our Eastern Atlantic neighbors.
 
As of now, Paris Ballet and Dance is closed but hoping to resume classes tomorrow on, Wednesday, September 4, 2019. Scheduling will be changed, if needed, and will be posted. I look forward to getting back into the routine of great classes, and beautiful and eager faces!

Sincerely,
Director Jean Hugues Feray
