I am passionate about developing creativity through art. I believe that through the artistic process, everyone can discover their own unique creativity.
As Artistic Expert at Cirque du Soleil for 22 years, I designed the Artistic Creativity Training for all the CDS Creations and Touring Shows, as well as mentoring dance coaches at CDS' MJOne & LOVE. At Cirque, through years of innovative experimentation, exploration and coaching, I developed the art of teaching creativity and how to transform athletes into artists.
A life-long movement expert, I graduated from the Royal Ballet School and performed with The National Ballet of Canada & Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and then became a reputed teacher at L'Ecole Supérieure de Ballet du Québec, before joining CDS. Through dance I discovered how to connect the imagination with physical expression, and how to express emotions and story through the art of Creative Movement.
As Creativity Consultant since 2017, I have directed CrEaTiVe GaMeS workshops for: Mosaic HEC University (Creativity School); Mosaic Creative Forum, Lithuania; CREATOYO, Toyo University, Tokyo & ArtIST, CNAM, Paris.
As Creative-Speaker I have given CrEaTiVe TeAmS AT CIRQUE DU SOLEIL conferences live and online at creativity forums and universities in Tokyo, Paris, Vilnius, Sarasota, Lille and Montreal, and I am a Key-note Speaker with Lavin Agency Speakers Bureau.
Published author with: Acro-Artistic Creativity / Instructional Design Fieldbook in 2022, I am currently writing a book on the Creative Process at Cirque du Soleil.
