Native of Terrebonne, Elsa Tellier has been in contact with art from a young age through the study of violin, dance and drama. At the college level, she specializes in the discipline that inspires her most by starting a dance training at Collège Montmorency in Laval. She continued her training at the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, from which she graduated in 2016. During her career, she discovered many ways to make the body speak, including through the meeting of several renowned choreographers such as Sasha Ivanochko, Manuel Roque, Ismaël Mouaraki, Marie Béland, Manon Oligny, Catherine Gaudet and Peter Jasko. During her training, she also learned a lot about going beyond herself. With a taste for challenge, Elsa goes forward with a lot of energy, intensity and passion in everything she does. Very organic and instinctive, she works hard to achieve her goals. A great sense of humour animates her, which she likes to share even in her dance. Of a tranquil strength nature, it is often considered the anchor of a group. Curious by nature and eager to learn, she began training at the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal in September 2016. She particularly wants to share through performance and teaching the possibility of an ease in the body and the joy of simply moving.
