Solene Bernier first discovered her passion for dance at a young age in her home province of Nova Scotia, Canada. While completing the Intensive Training Program at Halifax Dance, she explored the disciplines of ballet, jazz, tap, modern and contemporary dance and gained her first experiences as a performer. Eager to further her studies and to immerse herself in an artistic milieu, Solene moved to Montreal and obtained a D.E.C of Contemporary Dance at École de Danse Contemporaine de Montréal (QC, Canada) in 2019. During these three transformative years, she had the opportunity to perform works by Darryl Tracy, Edgar Zendejas, Ginette Laurin, Catherine Tardif, Anne Thériault, Iker Arrue, Alan Lake and Marie Chouinard. Along with her dance training, she also has a background in music and is interested in merging the two in future projects. Solene is committed to developing her technicity, artistry and the expressivity of her body. She is excited to engage in various projects as an interpreter and to continue learning while discovering the world through dance.
