Management & Coordination

A vision

The artistic director’s vision is essential for any higher dance training program. The role of the artistic director is to define the general program of courses and activities, and to design the links between all the modules in order to develop a common artistic approach among students and encourage the construction of their creative identities.

The role of the general coordinator is to ensure the day-to-day management of the program and training, with the support of the administrative team.
He is in regular contact with the students to support, monitor and guide them.

RISE

Kevin Pilette

A versatile dancer and choreographer, Kevin Pilette’s career has been nurtured by a host of great encounters (Franco Dragone, Luc Petit, Kamel Ouali, Mourad Merzouki, Farid Berki, Afid Zekhnini, etc.). They have enabled him to develop as a human being and to acquire a wealth of experience in the cultural sector and in urban dance. Whether alone or in duet with Saléna Baudoux, Kevin has multiplied his projects, from the biggest French theaters to TV shows.

These multiple experiences have enabled her to develop a complete vision of interpretation and creation, as well as a concrete network in the dance sector and more generally in urban dance.
