......................... STORY ..........................



I’ve been a Principal dancer, a choreographer and pedagogue for nearly 40 years. My dance education began in late ‘70s, contemporary dance was just emerging in France. At 18 years old, I left France to become a professional dancer, that was just before somatic practices developed in my country, so I did not benefit from this field of study in my education. My educational years were times when the strict notions of symmetry and hyper-verticality were dominant forces in the training of an ideal body. I feel I carried out my entire career with this subconscious 2D perception of myself. I also believe this way of working contributed to injuries that were to follow my dancing career. Until the SAFE® training changed the rules. Quite literally, SAFE® saved me.
