Chéline Lacroix is an emerging artist in contemporary dance. She was born in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada where she first began to enjoy dance classes at the age of 4. She explored many different styles such as Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Tap, Musical Theatre, Modern and Contemporary. Working as a teacher at Okanagan dance studios fostered her interest in choreography, and she followed this passion to Montréal, Québec, Canada where she completed two years at Concordia University in the Contemporary Dance Program. Aiming to develop and invest in her own physicality she began studying at École de Danse de Contemporaine de Montréal. During this intensive professional training program, she has enhanced her artistry by gaining a greater understanding of her physical capacities. Her own choreographic projects are informed by her experience working as an interpreter for Anne Thériault, Iker Arrue, Ginette Laurin, Darryl Tracy, and other professional choreographers. In her own work she is researching the correlation between humour and physicality while questioning notions of gender and identity. As a professional, Cheline is eager to encounter and collaborate with choreographers and artists of different disciplines.
