Now in our 3rd year, we give our sincerest thanks to Pascale Leroy for partnering with us for this 5th edition of The French Sessions® and for continuing to host us in her charming Clement St. studio at the Pascale Leroy Ballet Center.
This August we had another terrific group of dedicated students from around the country, and our highest enrollment to date, with over 2/3 of our students being new to the sessions. Pascale and Pierre continue to offer a very special opportunity to those attending the sessions by way of the nurturing environment and focused feedback. It's always rewarding to see the students being inspired, progress, and increase their confidence during the week.
We look forward to having our students return at the end of December, along with welcoming students new to the sessions. Until then, remember to visit Pascale's website for her regular class schedule, and Pierre's Private Lesson Calendar for his schedule.
Thank you to again for joining us !!!

We had a wonderful group of students attend our December 2016 holiday session. Its been so nice to see our returning students' progress and to welcome new students to the sessions. The students who attend come from an array of Bay Area schools and its so rewarding to provide an opportunity for them to reconnect with each other in a focused, yet non-competitive environment. They gather at the sessions to work well, enjoy their "break" and gently prepare for the next round of their regular ballet studies.
Thank you and Happy New Year to all of the students and their families who have continued to support The French Sessions® !!

Our sincerest thanks to Pascale Leroy for partnering with us on The French Sessions® and for continuing to host us in her charming lilac studio at the Pascale Leroy Ballet Center. Her artistry, knowledge and nurturing quality are unique compliments to Pierre's innate pedagogy and keen eye. Together they offer a very special opportunity to students and professionals alike. We had a wonderful group of dedicated students from several Bay Area ballet Schools, who dove in and flourished during our August 2016 classes. Many of them had just returned from summer intensives across the country and used the sessions as a way to digest what they took from those experiences and calmly prepare for their fall semester ballet studies. We look forward to having them return at the end of December, along with welcoming students new to the sessions. Thank you to all of you who participated !!!

The French Sessions were conceived to offer serious classical ballet students, wishing to retain the benefits of their June-July intensive studies, an opportunity to work and focus in a nurturing, no-pressure environment, in preparation for their regular academic-dance year. We welcome students from around the Bay Area and beyond to join us for future sessions which will be planned during late summer and school holiday breaks, to compliment the students' customary instruction.
