Stéphanie Decourteille

Training and contemporary dance classes in Montreal

In her morning and evening DANCE CLASSES, 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.

 

INTENSIVE TRAINING

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. Supported by technical training sessions, collaborative and individual creation laboratories, this intensive offers a multitude of experiences that foster both practical and theoretical development of the Artist.

DANCER TRAINING AND

EVENING CLASSES

Every Monday, Wednesday Thursday and Friday morning, Stéphanie Decourteille offers contemporary dance classes and contemporary ballet bar classes (for medium, intermediate and advanced level) . Every Wednesday evening, she teaches contemporary dance  (for beginner and intermediate level) 

About Stéphanie

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.

" I am so grateful for my experience in this program. It gave me the opportunity to develop my skills as an independent artist, both technically and creatively. I have appreciated how Stephanie works with us each on an individual basis within the group in order to help us hone our strengths and work on our weaknesses while giving us the space to explore our own language in movement. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to deepen their skills as an artist".
