Geneviève Dussault


Geneviève Dussault studied music and trained in several dance styles (Classical, Baroque, Renaissance, East Indian and Contemporary). In 1991, she obtained a MFA in dance from York University and, in 1996, she graduated as a Certified Movement Analyst from the Laban / Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies.

She also taught at the Music Faculty of Université de Montréal between 1990 and 1996.
