Originally from the city of Sherbrooke (Quebec, Canada) and now based in Montreal (Quebec) since 2013, Gabrielle Roy fell in love with the art of dance from an early age. She first completed her first dance training at the Cégep de Sherbrooke, where she met Lyne Lamontagne, who greatly influenced her artistic development. Intrigued by self-expression and the influence of the mind on the body, she embarked on a second training at the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, from where she graduated in May 2016. During her studies, she worked alongside Peter Jasko, Catherine Gaudet, Jamie Wright, Marie Béland and Manon Oligny. Inspired by these committed figures of the contemporary scene and by her teachers Marc Boivin, Sophie Corriveau and Anne LeBeau, Gabrielle knows how to be vulnerable, touched by the prose and poetry of the words and bodies that surround her. She is in search of this state of pure truth where humanity advocates, which allows her to find the balance between her sensuality and her vitality in movement.
