It was a wonderful Holiday Session !!

For our third straight year, the holiday session offering was a success. We had a very nice group of students, 21 in all, for our 3 days in late December 2017. The students enjoyed technique, pointe class, and batterie for the men, along with a bit of partnering and variations. Everyone worked well and enjoyed their remaining days of 2017 with fun and friends.

Thank you to all of you who attended. We hope to see you again in 2018.

Happy New Year !!!

Our 5th edition of The French Sessions had record enrollment !!

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 !!!

2016 Holiday Sessions were a wonderful end-of-season treat

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® !!
