There is no written curriculum and the technique and style is only transmitted orally. French technique puts the accent on elegance, style and a sense of nobility as opposed to tricks and exaggeration. Everything should appear effortless and in control. The technique is there to serve the art and not the other way around. Boris Richir, originally from Antwerp, Belgium, received his dance education at the Paris Opera Ballet School, one of the world’s top dance schools. He started his professional career in 2009 when he joined the prestigious Semperoper Ballet in Dresden, Germany. In 2014, he joined the Boston Ballet followed by the Atlanta Ballet for the 2017/18 season. Boris Richir has performed soloist, and lead roles in a wide repertoire ranging from The Nutcracker to contemporary pieces such as the revolutionary ballets of W. Forsythe. In 2012 he became assistant director of ART of Ballet Courses and master classes where he is responsible for the organization of high level dance summer courses across Europe. During his career with the Boston Ballet, he worked closely with their Adaptive Dance department where he developed a passion for inclusive dance education. In 2017 he founded United Dance, an organization that provides dance programs specifically designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with Down syndrome. + Dance Studio, Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, 1700 North Decatur Rd., , Atlanta, GA 30322 Campus Events
