The French style of ballet has always been one of my favorites. I love that elongated line, that precision, that elegance. Francois Perron, a graduate of the Paris Opera Ballet School, recently opened the French Academie of Ballet in New York City, and this month he's offering a French Masters' Workshop to give students a quick immersion into the French style. Students will take technique, variations, partnering, and even jazz, modern and Gaga from top-notch French teachers.
