Support Circuit-Est


ELLES dansent !

Annual fundraising campaign


“In a society where being a woman may sometimes be challenging, there is nothing like gathering together to share and exchange through dance and movement. For the third time, I have the pleasure to join Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique to help women with disabilities to push boundaries. Dance will prove us, once again, that nothing is impossible! Join me so that they can dance!”

Honorary President


For the last six years, Circuit-Est has been undertaking cultural mediation activities founded upon sharing and encounters. Anxious to contribute to the collective well-being and to tackle marginalization, Circuit-Est has already supported more than a hundred people to experience an artistic process in contemporary dance.

In 2019, with the collaboration of DisAbled Women’s Network Canada, ELLES dansent ! will invite 20 young women with disabilities to discover dance and its benefits. Together with the choreographer Catherine Tardif, these women, often victims of poverty, isolation, violence and discrimination, will take part in a dozen workshops in Circuit-Est’s studios. A public presentation will conclude the project on June 15th, 2019 at 2 p.m., in the Jeanne-Renaud studio.

To create together is to blossom, to break down borders, to open ourselves to others, and to discover a little part of unknown within ourselves.


“When I got back home, I began to smile and my immaculate heart opened up, letting the light waltz.”
A participant of the 2014 cultural mediation activity
