Circus artist and dancer
Aerial ladder duo
At four years old, as soon as she wore her first dancing shoes, Jade-Emmanuelle Amyot was habited by an unalterable passion: the dance and the stage. Intuitively combining life with movement, she peacefully walked on the rudiments to the deepening of her art until she obtained, in 2007, a diploma in contemporary dance from L'École de danse de Québec. Since then, she has been continuing her training through workshops in contemporary, classical, hip hop, contact and latin dance in Canada and the United States. She has been performing as an independent artist, performer, teacher, repeater, judge, choreographer and artistic director.
Adept at novelty and adventure, she uses previous experiences to develop with enthusiasm new skills in another sphere: the circus. Focusing on the aerial art, she created a solo hoop with ballet pointes and a solo silk with graceful and distinguished lines. Moreover, in symbiosis with her dazzling partners, she presents aerial in duo on a hoop, a silk-loop, a ladder, a luster and a harness.
Known for her versatility and radiant personality, Jade-Emmanuelle is revolving in the professional world of dance and circus. She had the privilege to collaborate with famous choreographers and directors. She particularly was pleased and honored to perform for special events of Le Cirque du Soleil and Le Cirque Éloize. In addition to her world-wide performances, she deploys her talents in the circus field, festivals, galas, corporate events and in production of shows, video-clips, short films, multidisciplinary creations and entertainment gatherings.
During the winter, Jade-Emmanuelle performed as a solo aerial artist for the opening of Frank Lyman’s Fashion Show and several special events offered by Hôtels Jaro and the circus company Dominic Lacasse Inc.
Moreover, she continued her circus partnership with Richard Cameron-Morneau. In addition to their improved aerial ladder act, they created two new aerial duos. This spring, they will perform in different shows in Quebec City.
This summer, Jade-Emmanuelle will perform once again in the fantastic show: Dragao at the Cité de l’énergie in Shawinigan.
