Rony Joaquin Figueroa
Graduated 2018 from EDCM 2022
Working with a choreographer who has a super precise and choreographic method, but who at the same time belongs and is created for each individual in the team, gives me hope that dance can belong to each body and that we can project who we are through an imposed movement.
2018 ESBQ graduate and dancer at Les Grands Ballets
Being at Place des Arts for a week, the dressing rooms, the theater and the stage, was really a breath of hope and pure happiness that reminded me why I do this job.
James Joseph Phillips
Dancer with O'Vertigo, Sylvain Émard Danse, Catherine Gaudet and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet
I really enjoyed working with a 'master' (Edouard Lock), and getting a glimpse into this complex and beautiful world. Edward was amazing at sharing the depth of his process.
