Danser Joe at Collège Regina Assumpta

March 30, 2022

With a great deal of enthusiasm, students from three classes at Collège Regina Assumpta plunged into the timeless universe of Joe by Jean-Pierre Perreault, from March 10 to 18, in the company of dancers Sara Hanley and Catherine Tardif.


Charles-Alexandre Lévesque, who is passionate about dance and teaching, wanted to offer young students this unique workshop created by Ginelle Chagnon at the Agora de la danse in 2013.


The performances were filmed and will be presented during the college’s end-of-year show. As Sara told us “It’s beautiful and touching to see each group perform the piece lit on the stage.” And Catherine said: “There was a light and pride in their beautiful eyes after filming… We started the week with a lot of students who didn’t quite understand what was expected of them, and, at the end of the project, those same students were grateful and delighted to be there.”


It is such a joy that Joe lives on today through the bodies of young dancers!
