Dance Classes for Adolescents

Dance classes for adolescents are back in 2020!

About the teachers:
Stéphanie BrochardStéphanie Brochard trained in both dance and theatre. She studied at the Conservatoire national de region in Angers, France, at L’École de Danse de Québec and went on to graduate from the teacher training program at The National Ballet School of Canada. She also studied at l’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, where she discovered the world of physical theatre and clown. She teaches on a regular basis in various dance training programs, in addition to offering different workshops. Stéphanie Brochard joined the Sursaut Dance Company in 2008, and performs in all the company’s productions as a dancer and is also Assistant Artistic Director since 2011. She also works with Les Jardins Chorégraphiques and Danse Cadence, two baroque dance companies in Montreal. In 2015, she created Me2, her first choreographic work, which is currently touring in Quebec and Canada with the Sursaut Dance Company. She also participated in the production Essaim, in which she presented her most recent solo creation, Compromis improbable, a project born of the desire to explore a new choreographic vocabulary by creating a fusion of baroque and contemporary dance.


Amandine Garrido GonzalezAmandine Garrido Gonzalez graduated from the University of Chile in 2002 with a degree in dance performance and worked for different contemporary dance companies throughout her country. She arrived in Canada in 2008 as part of the Cirque du Soleil production Varekai, where she worked as an aerial artist. As well as teaching dance and circus arts, she is involved in numerous creative projects, notably Sève, presented as part of Rurart – Contemporary Art in a Rural Setting, La géométrie des chats : le regard animal, presented at the Viva! Art Action Festival in Montréal, and De la souffrance à l’amour, presented on International Women’s Day in Sutton in 2015. Her inspiration, a mix of contemporary influences and gypsy dancing, allow Amandine to present her vision of dance as a sacred art, as an expression of the present moment. Her versatility and strong stage presence make her stand out as an artist. Amandine joined the Sursaut Dance Company in 2013. Acuna is her first collaboration with the company as choreographer.
