Amélie Rajotte holds a diploma in choreographic studies in contemporary dance from the Conservatoire national de Grenoble in France, where she receives training in both performance and creation (2000-2003).
As part of her studies, she works with choreographers and artists from various disciplines such as Rodolfo Araya, Dominique Boivin, Pascal Mengelle, Bruno Meyssat, Manolie Soysouvanh and the Albrecht Knust Quartet. After obtaining her diploma, she moved to Paris for three years to pursue her training as a dancer with choreographers and teachers including Mié Coquempot, Trisha Bauman and Pierre Doussaint.
She thus develops her improvisational skills, deepens the Release technique, approaches Feldenkrais and BMC and voice techniques related to movement. While completing a state diploma as a dance teacher at Cefedem de Rouen, she participated in several projects with choreographers Nadine Beaulieu, Sylvain Groud, Virginie Quignaux and the K622 company, among others.
Since 2006, she has been teaching contemporary dance in Montreal and working since 2010 as an interpreter for the PPS Danse company. Rajotte also pursues a choreographic creation process. Her works include In Fact, I’m Gross (2009), Tenir debout (2009), The Squirrel and the Mirror (2011) and Carnaval (2014). She is an artist member and co-founder of LORGANISME, a Montreal group of contemporary dance artists.
