More about Audrey:

Originally from France, Audrey started her professional training in 2007 at the Paris Opera Ballet School. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Classical Dance & Choreography from Paris’ National Superior Conservatory for Music & Dance and has also studied at the Ballet Academy of Munich, the Royal Ballet School in London, and St. Petersburg’s Eifman Ballet.

In 2014, Audrey arrived in Canada to join Ballet Eddy Toussaint de Montréal. In 2015, she was invited to dance with the Atlantic Ballet of Canada and toured with them—for two seasons—all over Canada and across Europe.

In 2017, Audrey was invited to join Ballet Edmonton—which gave her an opportunity to expand her repertoire in both ballet and contemporary. That same year, she also performed as the Sugar Plum Fairy in Shumka’s production of Nutcracker.

Audrey has been honoured to dance and participate in the creation of the world premieres of numerous pieces, including works by Wen Wei Wang, Shay Kuebler, Alyssa Pires, Rachel Meyer, and Gioconda Barbuto.

While dancing remains Audrey’s first passion, she loves to invent and choreograph new works: through Ballet Edmonton, she was invited to participate in the Banff Center for the Arts emerging choreographer program, and was thrilled to present ‘’Holiday in Red’’ to Edmonton audiences in December 2019.

Audrey is passionate about teaching, mentoring, and coaching dancers of all ages and abilities.  Bringing the beauty and power of dance to socially vulnerable youth is something that is particularly important to her, and she regularly teaches dance with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton.

Audrey also instructs ballet at Overdrive Dance Force and Celtic Ceilidh Dance Academy and creates numerous dance pieces for competitions and theatre shows. She is constantly looking to grow as a dancer, teacher, and choreographer by exploring exciting forms of movement, collaborating with the community in innovative ways, and sharing poignant stories on-stage.
