Intensive professional training, technical contemporary dance classes and summer workshops
In her DANCE CLASSES and in her INTENSIVE SUMMER WORKSHOPS, as well as in BIG BANG – an intensive training, Stéphanie Decourteille shares her technique of contemporary dance and her choreographic language. She works with artists (dancers, circus artists, comedians, etc.) and helps them to acquire new technical tools and full artistic maturity.
TRAINING FOR DANCERS
AND MORNING CLASSES
Stéphanie offers training classes in contemporary dance and contemporary ballet barre. In the current context, classes are offered only on Monday mornings to professional artists.
INTENSIVE TRAINING AND RESIDENCY PROGRAM
BIG BANG is an intensive training for artists who are looking to fine-tune their contemporary dance technique, acquire new movement skills, and develop an artistic maturity within their individual artistic language.
Professionally trained in both ballet and contemporary dance, Stephanie Decourteille has achieved the artistic role of instructor, choreographer, dancer and artistic counsellor. Throughout her years of training and acquaintances with leading heads in the scene (Rudy Bryans, Corinne Lanselle, Bruno Agati, Manon Barbeau etc.), she defines and tirelessly reinvents her signature choreographic style. "Vertiges", her first danced solo and short dance film reasoned the recognition from her peers and fueled her international visibility. In November 2015, Stephanie left Montreal for Guadeloupe (FR) to create a new dance center in Basse-Terre named LE MA - MOUVEMENT ACTUEL. LE MA is a dance training center, an international platform of multidisciplinary artistic exchange and research, a space of research and creation (www.centrema.com). She also supports professional and amateur artists by offering master classes and weekly classes in Montreal. Since January 2018, by creating an intensive training in contemporary dance, Stéphanie welcomes artists who wish to improve their and technical and artistic skills.

"First of all, I was trained in circus. My path has quietly deviated towards dance. My questioning about my practice and my relationship to the movement led me to Stephanie's classes first and then to BIG BANG. I wanted to progress technically, to flourish and to put myself in danger. The accompaniment, the openness and the rigor that Stephanie offers allowed me to develop myself as an artist. Sharing experiences in a small group, being surrounded by artists with different backgrounds inspired me and stimulated me a lot".
