“Dancing, acting and being on stage is my passion; I love performing and communicating with the audience! As dance is a performing art, it is sometimes smoother for me to introduce myself and share what I do through videos and photographs. This website was consequently created to present a bit of myself, to reach out and to encourage collaborations with people and artists.” Madeleine
