“Hi En Piste,

This winter I was lucky to have your financial support (Training Support with Nadia Richer and Career-Support Dance Skills with Anne-Flore de Rochambeau). I used these two trainings to research new hoop vocabulary and improve my dance skills in order to develop a new solo show called SCUSE. I wanted to thank you for your help, which really made a difference to my project, and to share with you the images of what we worked on: "

Thank you to Frédérique Cournoyer Lessard, a multidisciplinary circus artist and individual member of En Piste who was able to benefit from the individual support programs last year thanks to our support. Do not hesitate to consult her work.
