Catherine Fabiola Lessard transmits with passion and coherence the key
principles of dance improvisation, Contact Improvisation and Authentic
Movement, since over 15 years. She teaches and performs regularly in
Canada, USA and Europe. She is a guest teacher at the UQAM University
Dance Department and the artistic director of SOURCES for movement
improvisation and human development. Catherine has also served as
president of the Montreal Association for Contact Improvisation from 2007
to 2009. She has studied and performed with masters of international
reputation such as Nancy Stark Smith, Daniel Lepkoff, Nita Little and Zoe
Avstreih. She also has experience in Body-Mind Centering (BMC) and
Butoh, and has professional training in music and communications.
Catherine’s workshops are explorations of human expression through
investigative studies of physical organization, kinaesthetic awareness,
nuances of body-mind states, alinement to forces and empiric self-inquirery,
offered in a deep atmosphere of respect and discovery. Her approaches for
pedagogy and performance combine a sharp artistic vision and a hungry
curiosity for science.

What’s contact danse?

An invitation to let go in a haven of peace. Dancing, experience the laws of gravity, momentum and balance, that is the contact improvisation.
