The year 2024 marks the 100th birthday of a key figure in Quebec dance,

Ludmilla Chiriaeff (1924-1996), respectfully known as “Madame”.

Dancer, choreographer, teacher, founder and artistic director, her life’s journey spanned

two continents and was that of a fighter, a woman of conviction

who broke many glass ceilings and conquered the hearts of Quebecers through dance.
