Los Angeles show creator Susan Beck announces her campaign to bring "Big Apple Ballet" a Reality TV Docu Series to greenlit fruition showcasing NYC's top pre pro training school Manhattan's French Academie Of Ballet the only school of its kind in the US, founded by ballet heavyweight Francois Perron
NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "Big Apple Ballet" is a Reality TV Docu Series set in New York City and centers around Artistic Director and founder Francois Perron, formally of world famous Paris Opera Ballet and smash Broadway hit Billy Elliot fame coaching the young Billys into dancing stardom. Francois is gearing up for reality drama as he and his school French Academie Of Ballet will open its doors into this exclusive intriguing world of training New York City's most gifted young dancers with dreams of securing a place in some of the worlds greatest ballet companies, and with Perron's track record, FAB has become one of the most sought after pre-professional ballet training schools.
The school is a constant hotbed of activity providing endless timeless stories. Francois announces on social media that one of his former students, who began his training with Francois, was promoted to Soloist at American Ballet Theatre, this on the heels of Perron's Summer guest teaching tour across the US. Gifted young dancers soon will travel to New York City from the US and abroad to take part in French Academie Of Ballet's Summer Intensive program which has brought ballet superstars like ABT's Misty Copeland and Irina Dvorovenko in as former guest faculty. Adding into that mix of joyful chaotic drama will be FAB's 'OPEN AUDITIONS' for its 2014-2015 Year-Round pre-professional training program August 14-28, soon to be followed by 'casting' and rehearsals for the school's end of the year Nutcracker Performance.
Francois has that likeability factor, that joie de vivre charm about him, displaying his French ferocity.
He also teaches at American Ballet Theatre's JKO Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School, and Juilliard. His explosive volatility and witty jibs are sure to entertain ballet fans and inspire new ones! When actress model Andie McDowell boasted of her daughter training with Francois on ABC's popular show 'The View' it created quite a school buzz.
In a David vs Goliath of "Firsts", Susan states, "With the new Starz scripted ballet drama 'Flesh and Bone' on the horizon it may just be the right time for this unique reality tv docu series with a French twist. There is No One like Francois." As in tutus, pointe shoes and costume 'fittings' it will be exciting to see what network and or co production partner will pick up this series. http://www.bigappleballet.com
