Francis Veyette danced with Pennsylvania Ballet for 17 years, retiring in 2016. He performed a repertoire that ranged from the lead in Balanchine roles like ‘Square Dance’ and ‘Theme and Variations’, to Siegfried in ‘Swan Lake’, to many original works by resident choreographer Matthew Neenan. While still dancing with the company, Francis was asked to lead Pennsylvania Ballet II, where he was tasked with shepherding young dancers through the transition from student to professional. During his career as a dancer, Francis was regularly teaching students for 6 years before retiring from the stage last year. Most recently, Francis has relocated to Miami with his wife, and soloist with MCB, Lauren Fadeley, where he has joined the MCB school faculty. Today we are excited to welcome Fran to get his advice and insight into the world of Summer Intensive auditions.
