Lucie Boissinot

Artistic and Program Director

Lucie Boissinot has been working in contemporary dance for about 30 years, first as a dancer and choreographer, and then as a teacher. She currently works as a manager and consultant. During her successful professional dance career from 1979-2003, she successively performed with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, the Toronto Dance Theatre, Danse Partout and the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault.
The muse of many choreographers and a much sought-after dancer and choreographer, she has helped create a vast number of Canadian choreographic projects. Among others, she has performed the works of Tedd Robinson, Catherine Tardif, Harold Rhéaume and Jean-Pierre Perreault.
In 1985, the Canada Council for the Arts awarded her the Jacqueline Lemieux Prize. That same year, she began her career as a contemporary dance teacher. Since then, she has taught at vocational training institutions, including the UQAM and Concordia University, the École de danse de Québec, the School of Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers and the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal where she is Artistic Director and Program Director since 2005.
A professional who has a reputation for sound professional judgment and a visionary mind, Ms. Boissinot is often asked to sit on various boards of directors, in addition to playing an active role in the Conseil des arts de Montréal from 2006-2012. Since October 2012, she is also a board member of the Regroupement québécois de la danse. Known for her strong analytical skills and in-depth knowledge of the field, major government cultural institutions have been calling upon her to participate in various committees and juries for over ten years.
