2022 is a reflection on a mutating world, a celebration of humankind’s strength and resilience, and an ode to the power of hope.

Her work has been presented both in Canada and internationally. After teaching dance in the École supérieure de ballet du Québec (2007-2020), she recently taught at The School of Dance (Ottawa), Ottawa Dance Directive at the Department of Theater at the University of Ottawa. 

Artistic vision

I have always been interested in collaborating with artists from different creative fields. It has been part of my artistic path for the past thirty years. I have collaborated on many projects with visual artists, as well as theatre and cinema producers. I am currently interested in exploring mental health and how dance can help people with mental disorders to express themselves.
