TESTIMONIALS AND COMMENTS
Here are a few testimonials from parents, students and people and the school, classes, intensives and who have seen productions of Paris Ballet and Dance!
"Paris Ballet has been an incredible school for our daughters. We learned about Paris through word of mouth recommendations when we arrived to Jupiter 5 years ago. Jean-Hugues Feray and his staff teach the students with total professionalism and they help the dancers to believe in themselves and reach for the stars. The dancers can choose to take their paths with the art of dance as far as they desire - Jean-Hugues’ program allows them to pursue a pre-professional track; others may choose to dance as a pure hobby, which is totally supported too!
Jean-Hugues worked with our oldest when she wanted to audition for Bak and thanks to his solid preparation, she was accepted. Unfortunately, we needed to move due to work reasons - we’re now in a big city with a professional dance company and an associated school. Our daughters auditioned and both got in! We give all of the credit to the training the girls received from Jean-Hugues and his staff. If you have any doubts, attend one of the school’s performances to understand the caliber of dance. The dancers are mesmerizing, and one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen is the expression on Jean-Hugues face as he watches his students dance. He truly loves each and everyone of his students. They feel that and it encourages them to believe in their dreams. I could not recommend this school more - it’s a true gift to the Jupiter community." - S.C.A

"The experiences of our children and the people that surround them, like the ones we had ourselves growing up, contribute piece by piece to the person they will one day grow up to be. Though we are born with talents and personalities both inherited and gained from our families, in many ways it is our experiences that truly shape us. Our family is so grateful for the teachers, friends, families, and community that we have found in Paris Ballet. What an amazing weekend it was, and another opportunity to see each of our children push themselves and discover that they can achieve anything they work hard for, all the while knowing they will always be supported and loved by their families and their dance community. Thank, Mr. Jean-Hughes, for your vision that moves it all forward, to your staff and all the fellow parents and volunteers for making it happen, and congratulations to all the dancers on a fantastic weekend of performance and inspiration." - J.N.

“My 12 year old son wanted to take ballet after seeing the musical, Billy Elliot. This is the first place I knew to take a young impressionistic young man, a middle schooler...... full of insecurity and self-criticism. He has just finished is first week, after a summer of private lessons with Mr. Jean, and is thrilled to have finally found his "thing." He was welcomed and encouraged by all his teachers, and was encouraged (even after a few private tears with mom) and is ready to start his second week. THANKS for a great first experience for my son!” - J.L.
