Jupiter-based Paris Ballet and Dance will present a season finale performance at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach on June 11.

The dancers will perform two year-end shows at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Rinker Playhouse, featuring the best in ballet, modern, contemporary, neoclassical, jazz and tap. Audiences will also be treated to a special guest performance by Ohio’s famed Le Jeune Dance.

“While our season is primarily focused on ballet, our June performances are an opportunity to showcase the many other forms of dance that students learn at Paris Ballet et Danse,” said Jean-Hugues Feray, Founder of dance school. “Performances will also feature ballet classics, such as Cinderella (with Raelin Flanigan and Maia DeOreo), excerpts from Swan Lake, and more. It’s a perfect performance for people of all ages who love dance and want to enjoy a quality afternoon or evening at the Kravis Center to support the next generation of young dancers.

The performances will also showcase the talents of students from the prestigious Paris Conservatoire de Danse de Feray, an elite accelerated training program for students preparing for professional dance careers.

“This is the last chance for local residents to see some of our recent graduates perform before embarking on professional dancing careers or heading to college,” Feray said. “The performers will include Devon Luxton, who will join the training program at the Dutch National Ballet Academy in the Netherlands, and Clare Keavy, who will join the trainee program at Sarasota Ballet. I am so proud of all of our talented and hardworking students.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by calling the Kravis Center box office at (561) 832-7469 or online here.
