THE TRAINING FEEDS INTO THE PERFORMING COMPANY
To empower our students for success in dance or any field of their choice be it artistic or academic.
Give our students the skills to carry themselves with confidence and grace.
I will always cherish my Summer Intensives with Lumiere Ballet during which I was given many opportunities to perform in ballets like "Coppelia", "Giselle", "Swan Lake", "Sleeping Beauty" and also newer solo and duet pieces by Venti Petrov like "Eight Twenty" and "The Ballerina"
The care, attention to details and true love for dance that Svetlana and Venti pass down to their students is something that I have carried in my dancing throughout Paris Opera Ballet School, ABT School, Boston Ballet and now into my professional life with the Hungarian National Ballet Company.
Under Founders/Artistic Directors, Svetlana Caton and Venti Petrov
