Biographie

Susannah Haight, is a freelance contemporary dancer/choreographer based in Montréal. Her earliest exposure to movement and physical expression was as a competitive rhythmic gymnast. Her fluidity, flexibility and performance skills were honed at a very young age, under the tutelage of Olympic coach Danuta Smiechowski. In her teen years, she successfully auditioned to attend Canada’s oldest arts based high school, Etobicoke School of the Arts (ESA) as a dance major. In her graduating year, she was the recipient of the "The Edward Lam Memorial Scholarship" presented by internationally acclaimed Canadian design firm Moss & Lam. Her ESA experience and recognition from artists outside the world of dance, encouraged her to pursue a career as a dance ‘artist’.

Susannah completed her post-secondary education at École de danse contemporaine de Montréal (EDCM). During her summer breaks, she has been invited to attend training at, The National Ballet School of Canada (Toronto)The National Circus School (Montréal, Québec), Domaine Forget Arts Academie (Quebec), San Francisco Conservatory of Dance (California, USA) P.A.R.T.S (Brussels, Belgium) and B12 Berlin. She has also been selected to participate in many professional level intensives/workshops such as Compagnie Marie Chouinard, TransFormation Danse, RUBBERBANDance and Metamorphosis Dance.

Susannah is working on developing her skills not only as a performer, but also as a choreographer and artistic director. In 2016, she presented her original creation “What (I)t was (nt) at Project Incubator at The Belgo in Montréal. At the start of 2017, she featured her own unique work in the short film "Anoesis", shot at Le Livart: Centre d'Art Contemporain in Montréal.

Susannah has had a variety of professional dance experiences – from freelance dancer/apprentice with Compagnie Marie Chouinard to music videos, dance films to acting/performing in CBC seriesFrankie Drake”. Susannah continues to work on independent artistic projects and is focused on combining her versatility as a dancer with her interests in other forms of visual art such as photography, film, music and fashion. She has been commissioned by international fashion designers, Paloma Wool Barcelona, Spain and also KARA NYC, New Yorkto produce (direct, edit, choreograph and perform) short performance art films to be utilized in their social media advertising campaigns. She has also created many short films to showcase her own dance and choreography.
