Anik Bissonnette: co-director, artistic director, and pedagogical director

After dancing 17 year as a principal dancer with les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, and receiving national and international accolades for her extraordinary classical technique and artistic sensibility, Anik Bissonnette “retired” in 2008 for what proves to be a very active continuation. Her vast experience in both the classical and contemporary repertoire, in addition to her outstanding reputation as a principal dancer, and her ongoing implication in the dance world, make her the perfect ambassador for dance in Québec. As a co-director, artistic director and pedagogical director of l’École supérieure since 2010, Bissonnette has built a career known for having received some of the most prestigious awards; Officer of the Order of Canada (1995), Knight of the Order of Québec (1996), Denise-Pelletier Award (2008).
