French Academie of Ballet, Francois Perron, Big Apple Ballet
Manhattan's top pre pro ballet school French Academie Of Ballet (FAB) is the only school of it's kind in the US that teaches the french technique method launching some of New York City's most gifted young dancers into professional ballet careers.
Artistic Director and founder Francois Perron, formally of WORLD famous Paris Opera Ballet, is gearing up for reality drama as he and his school will be the focus of a new dance reality TV series being pitched, titled Big Apple Ballet.
Francois has that likeability factor, that joie de vivre charm about him, whether he's all dressed up in Hugo Boss for New York City's ballet elite in attendance at one of FAB's Manhattan performances or the intensity of classroom drama displaying his french ferocity when he demands the best from his students.
Francois brings a gravitas, Black Swan-esque intrigue! He also teaches at American Ballet Theatre's Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School and Juilliard, and he was the sole ballet coach to the boys for the entire run of the Tony Award-winning Broadway show Billy Elliot.
As a professional dancer, Francois danced in all three major New York City pro ballet companies - New York City Ballet, Joffrey and American Ballet Theatre. The jet setting Perron is also in demand to guest teach throughout the US and abroad.
His explosive volatility and witty jibs are sure to entertain ballet fans and inspire new ones! Sports fans will appreciate and get an insight into the discipline of the hard core athletic ballet training.
