Marie-Josée Lecours danced for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and Ballet British Columbia after having completed her training at l’École supérieure. Following her dance career, she obtained several bursaries that allowed her to dedicate the next few years to studying and transitioning careers. As a result, she was awarded a bachelor of Art history degree (1998) and a Master’s degree in Library science (2002). She has since been the librarian of the Vincent-Warren Library of dance. In 2006, she conceptualized and created Chorème, a website dedicated to dance in Quebec. The website is of inestimable value, partly to the community, but also for distributing and preserving the heritage of dance in Quebec.
