ABOUT FRENCH ACADEMIE OF BALLET - Founded in 2011 by François Perron, the French Académie of Ballet is a unique pre-professional training program. Based on the French School of classical technique, the French Académie of Ballet trains pre-professional dancers in the tradition of classical technique, promoting ballet in its purest form; placing emphasis on precision and elegance. The curriculum is designed to develop strength and flexibility through a pure classical technique.
The Académie’s year-round pre-professional program consists of four levels of training, Elementary through Advanced. Each level is closely supervised by François and taught by himself and his faculty. At each level, a schedule of classes has been created to develop the physical and technical strength that propel a dancer toward artistic growth and prepare dancers for the demands of a professional dance career.
NEW FOR FALL 2012 - Dedicated Boy’s classes for those male dancers not yet advanced enough to take the dedicated Men’s classes. Additional level for dancers at an Elementary level. Dedicated Boy’s classes and the Elementary level will be taught by Artistic Director and former coach of Broadway’s Billy Elliotts, François Perron.
