Born in St-Bruno, Quebec, Canada, CLAUDELLE BILODEAU was born at an early age into a lifestyle that could almost be described as nomadic. Very quickly, she developed a great curiosity and an openness to the world. Her taste for travel is revealed, in part because she has the chance to discover the city of Buenos Aires and live there for two years.
Although she has always shown a great interest in dance, it is only in her teens that she tastes it more regularly. She then undertook a DEC in Sciences Humaines profil Monde at the Cégep du Vieux Montréal, where she was also part of the Exit 505 troupe (at the time directed by Jean-Pierre Mondor). Seeing that her love for dance continued to grow, she decided to undertake a training to become a dancer in contemporary dance at L’École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, where she graduated in the spring of 2012.
During her career, she participated in several creations with different choreographers: Marc Boivin, Marie Béland, Julia Sasso, Réal Bossé, Audrey Bergeron and Sacha Ivanochko. With the latter, she has the opportunity to participate in Duet, a piece that particularly marks her. She also has the chance to dance several repertoire pieces such as Le crépuscule des océans (by Daniel Léveillé) adapted by Sophie Corriveau, les 24 Préludes de Chopin, a piece taken from the repertoire of Marie Chouinard and adapted by Isabelle Poirier, and Joe and Rodolphe by Jean-Pierre Perreault, adapted by Ginelle Chagnon.
Upstream of this, Claudelle follows throughout his training, courses of Body Mime (Omnibus), theatre (Marie-Josée Gauthier) as well as dance improvisation (Imprudanses.)
