(New York, NY, United States)

Two students from the 'Ballet des Amériques' have been accepted by the Opera National de Paris as boarder trainees to the Paris Opera's Summer School. Alexandria O. and Isabel W., both residents of Greenwich, Connecticut, are trained by 'Ballet des Amériques', Director Carole Alexis. Madame Alexis prepared the video audition assisted by Isodale Alexis, also a teacher and a dancer at 'Ballet des Amériques'.

Based in Port Chester, New York, 'Ballet des Amériques' is an international performing arts and dance center for students and professionals in the greater New York City area.

Under the direction of Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques School & Company combines ballet training, dance education and performance. Students of the School receive intensive training in classical ballet, in modern and in contemporary dance as well as a well-rounded dance education (with classes in music, dance history, anatomy) in a comprehensive and integrated curriculum-based pre-professional program. The professional dancers of the Company of Ballet des Amériques perform original choreographies throughout the greater New York City area and increasingly throughout the world.

I can't do ballet
by: Anonymous

I don't do ballet but to me it looks very interesting. I'm not that flexible but I really wish I was. My dance teacher does the splits for our dance class, I'm on to the stage where I can almost touch the ground. What I am trying to say is that I wish I could do the splits right away.

Yours sincerely,
